In vivekachuDAmaNi it is said destruction of desires is nothing but
Since spirituality is direct feeling with mind, mind is given high
importance in sAdhanA. Understanding happens inside mind only. It is the
mind that experiences freedom or peace. Experience is due to mind. If there
is no desire I.e. vAsanA then mind is already destroyed. Even the desire of
Moksha has to be finally dropped. Similarly if destruction of mind I.e.
manonAsha happens, then vAsanAkshaya I.e. destruction of desires
If there is no mind there is no ego too. All three are interconnected.
