Life is so short and the Himalayan task of coming out of the clutches of mind is so huge that one lifetime is not enough. The way is arduous and the guidance of the Guru is the only light on the path to wakefulness. This mind is so clever and cunning that it does not want to die. When we shine the torch of awareness on it, the shadows of mind start melting away.
