11. ROBES OF JNANA

1668. Jnana is All; not Robes

Without Jnana, robe but leads to hell
Without robe, Jnana yet leads to Mukti;
When they seek Jnana,
They shall seek Lord and pray,
Their hearts robed in Jnana way.

10. HOLY ASHES

1665. Chant "Aum" and unite in Param

Fools know not what thread and tuft are;
Thread is but Vedanta, and tuft is Jnana;
Brahmins true who live in accord thus,
Shall see Jiva in Siva uniting;
Chant sacred mantra "Aum"
Add lo! the Two merge forever in One.

1659. ' Tapas-True and False '

They who perform false tapas enter hell
They shall not become the holy ones;
False tapas is deceit and vain effort
A ruse for worldly enjoyment;
Only by Truth of Jnana can tapas firm abide.

1657. ' Let Government lead people in the way of Virtue '

A land's weal and woe are in its people
Out of good deeds and evil do they spring;
And so,
If the ruler unceasing leads the multitude in virtue's way,
That land in prosperity waxes ever.

1656. Men of false robes bring famine

When those that have not acquired Jnana
Don the holy robes
And go about the land begging,
And evil ways pursuing,
The rains fail and famine strikes the land;
Better by far, these evil men are de-robbed straight.

8. FALSE ROBES

1655. Men of False Robes know not Siva

You fools! With false robes you deceive people
Your pretension but helps you gorge yourself fast with food;
Well may you sing and dance and weep and wail
And thus may Siva seek,
Yet never, never shall you glimpse His Feet.

7. JNANA FLOWS FROM GOD'S GRACE

1653. God is Beauty

Form within Sun-Stone is red hot ember,
Form within Moon-Stone is pearly drop of water,
Form within Fire-Stone is crackling fire,
Form of Lord that holds fire aloft
Is Beauty Surpassing.

1652. ' Tapasvins Will Receive Grace Even Hereafter '

If born in body in the Other World
Tapasvins will pursue tapas there;
And Will there reach Lord's Feet
And receive His Grace for sure.

7. JNANA FLOWS FROM GOD'S GRACE

1649. Things That Come of Siva's Grace

By Siva's Grace some become Devas
By Siva's Grace some equal Gods
By Siva's Grace Karmas near not;
When you have Siva's Grace,
You shall enter His Kingdom, indeed.

1643. ' Tapas is Control of Senses '

Inside the body-sack
The tiny calf of senses jumps about
For the fruit to ripe and for the ripened fruit to eat;
They that can tether the lusty legged calf to the yard
Shall no more have pulls within;
Their thoughts will in oneness center.

1642. ' They That Shun Tapas Hunger Forever '

In fear they ran from the crocodile in the river
And on the bank they fell into the embrace of the bear
Thus are they the ignorant of scriptures,
Who from austere tapas run sway.
For food and in hunger roam for ever.

1641. ' Tapas is Single-mindedness '

To the devout tapasvins, who in disheveled locks sit
Lord lets no harm happen,
He His Grace lends;
And you look at tapas
Of those that all trials overcame,
Know you, it is by their oneness of mind in tapas
They blocked the births to come.

1640. Tapas is the Supreme Means

I gathered the tender leaves and flowers variegated
I wove a garland
All for my Father;
Yet I saw not the gushing waters of Grace;
I scanned the lofty lores of scriptures
And my heart ebbed low;
But I stood in tapas
And touched Cranium heights
Lo! met mine Lord.

1639. ' Tapas Gives Bhakti and Mukti '

In intimacy He stands within us;
Pray that He grant you Bhakti;
Prostrate that He grant you Mukti;
Truly, it is tapas that makes Munis divine.

1638. ' Light of Tapas is Light of Self '

Unsheath your sword of Jnana from mind's scabbard,
Flash it across the bonds of pasa, hacking them twain;
And watch your Self, lest senses five run wild;
Then, shall light that is of tapas born
Become light of the Self.

1637. ' Follow Tapasvins and Meet God '

Swimming across the seven seas of the mind
The tapasvins true their heaven reached;
Let them that are tossed in the sea of births about
Listen but to their Commandments holy,
Then can they see Nandi, face to face, for sure.

1634. ' To Reach the Actionless State is Above All '

You need no shouting
When in understanding you withdraw,
You need no speaking,
When in Samadhi you are seated;
You need no baptismal rites
When you stand detached;
You need no meditation,
When you have reached actionless state.

1633. When You Need not Renounce

You need not pray, if the Soul of Souls enters in you;
You need not adore, if Siva abides true in you;
You need not die, if Samadhi you attain,
You nee not renounce, if you go not the way of senses.

1631. ' Inward look of Tapas Ends Birth '

Come apart from the clever argumentation of contending theology,
And for a brief brief while, look inward;
That one look shall drive the nail into the coffin of birth
And forever end its cycle recurring.

5. TAPAS

1630. Tapas Alone is Imperishable Wealth

Amidst the tumult of raging hatred, they perished,
The kings, their ministers and their elephantine hordes;
But fixing their sights on divine Jnana and universal love,
The tapasvins immortals became, their eyelids batting not.

1627. ' Tapasvins Remain Impervious to Temptations

Transfixed in mind and tortured body
Stout of heart, they perform tapas splendorous;
Even though the Celestial King
And others, however mighty, descend to them,
And tempt them,
Their determined thought on Shiva firm remains.

1626. Tapasvin Ends Birth

The Tapasvins many that live by alms
Have no life hereafter;
On them shall be showered
All blessings of Spiritual wealth;
They that perform tapas incessant
Attain the power to end
All births to be.

1625. ' Only the Blessed Know Greatness of Tapas '

The mystery of life, the origin of earth,
The might of pure deeds of tapas
Who knows them all
But they that receive Lord's Grace?
The rest know naught of tapas supreme.

1624. Blessings of the Placid Mind

The heart of the holy trembles not in fear,
All passions stilled, it enjoys calm unruffled;
Neither is there death
Nor pain, nor night nor day,
Nor fruits of Karma to experience;
That truly is the state of the desire-renounced.

1620. ' Liberation is for the Renunciate Alone '

The Lord renounced all;
He is the Shining Light above;
He is the Friend of all,
Who have surmounted Death's days;
He is devoid of desires;
The guiding light of all those
Who Darkness renounced;
Only to those who abandoned this world,
Will His Feet within reach be.

10. FRUITS OF EIGHT-LIMBED YOGA

636. The Devotee Hailed

When he reaches the World of Siva
The Celestials,
Who in directions eight stand
Ask, "Who is he?"
And Hara says: "He is Mine;"
And the noble Devas foregather and hail him
As well as if they met Siva Himself.
