    Yes. From mind all thoughts speech and actions come.

    I think hell in this instance means thrown back to the cyclic existence of samsara.
    When we have attraction and aversion, we create new seeds of karma.
    If we are neutral in what we experience, no new karma is created.
    Even being born in the devas realm is samsara, because one will eventually fall from the plane of luxury.

    In other words, when more and more people have pure mind, there will be less and less people on earth, because most will not be reborn anymore.

    First, how many non returners or arahants do you think there are, also the countless sentient beings within the six realms. Will not make an obvious dent! Some "promoted" others "demoted"

    Pure mind alone not enough. Renounce attachment to self is the only way to empty samsara which is impossible
