The common people feel just by pulling the strings of the chariots till Gundeecha temples will liberate them but that is not true.

What is consciousness? Are we pure consciousness?

Keep in mind is that some states of consciousness are not linked to memory.. for example sleep consciousness is not and so is cosmic consciousness. If someone asks you what happened in the sleep – you may not remember. All you remember are the points in time-scale of beginning and end of it. Cut of from the senses and memory may not be there.. but that does not mean consciousness doesn’t exist in that frame of time.
