Om Namasivaya Nama:
Manomaya Kosa continued..
Mind alone is responsible for bondage of superimposition. Due to Rajas and Thamas one lacks discrimination, this causes misery of life.
Mind is considered to be Avidhya (illusion/un-real) by sages just like the wind is reason for accumulating clouds as well disperse.
Mind must be diligently purified by one who seeks liberation.
One must root out his/her attachments for sense objects and renounce all actions with a faith in Truth and also hear vedanthik advises to get rid of Rajas.
The mental sheath cannot be the supreme Self either for it has a beginning and an end, modification, pain as well suffering etc unlike Supreme Brahman.
