~ When the pot is broken, the space within it is absorbed in the infinite space and becomes undifferentiated. When the mind becomes pure, I do not perceive any difference between the mind and the Supreme being.
There is no pot; there is no pot’s interior space. Neither is there an individual soul nor the form of an individual soul. Know the Brahman, devoid of knowable and knower. ! Avadhuta Gita, Chapter 1
