Saint Surveying Past Lives or Worldly Life in General

A saint in a remote mountain setting, having realized the Self and attained Moksha, ponders all the many lives it took to get to this state. Or–saint from his detached perspective observes those immersed in the world.

Seeing the mind in its totality convinces the seeker that he is something else, he is the witness who observes the mind and cannot, therefore, be the mind itself. Then we realize that the mind in its superconsciousness is pure.
