MIND is the "seed" of everything, from which sprouts both existence and nirvana.
Pay obeisance to it, for, like the wish-fulfilling gem, it gives you the fruit that you desire. IF the mind is shackled, one is also shackled -
 
When it is free, one is also free. There is no doubt about this: that which
shackles the ignorant - liberates the wise immediately.

                                                                            (Buddhist Scriptures, p. 482-483)
