The realized jnani-teachers like Ramana and Nisargadatta speak a lot about the "annihilation" of the mind or "abandonment" of the mind. My sense of what they are pointing to is the abandonment of the "I" idea that we take to be who we are. We think there is some kind of little, invisible entity in our head that talks all the time, that we call, "my mind". When you really look at it, it's quite an absurd concept...no?
