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.

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.

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.

632. Lord's Devotees Reach Abode of Gods

They who seek Lord
Of the matted locks bedecked with flowers
Will sure reach the Abode of Gods;
"What this devotee of mine seeks,
That I grant."
Thus blesses the Lord
That mounts the Bull
And dances to His Consort's delight.

631. Samadhi Transcends Siddhis

To those who are in Samadhi
Many the Yogas that come of themselves
And the Siddhis eight that come unsought;
But, Samadhi none is for those who walk with God
Samadhi none is for those who become one is God.

630. Samadhi Leads to Worship by Gods

He stood as the Peerless pillar of Light;
When Jiva in Samadhi merges in Him,
Brahma that creates
And Vishnu of the ocean-hue,
Both stand adoring him.

629. Tranquility in Samadhi

Samadhi attained, Siva is attained;
Sakti too will be caught in its fold;
Distracting passions will be dispelled;
in equanimity perfect,
Like unto a balance.
Will be the mind
All this, for those who in Samadhi sleep.

626. In Samadhi, Oneness in God is Attained

He is Our Own
He is the Primal One
He taught the Vedas Four
He is the light that glows within the purest gold
They adored Him in love
They approached Him all desires devoid
All climbed the Mystic Tree High;
Their breath halted in Samadhi
They with him became One

620. In Samadhi Mano-Laya is Reached

Where there is mind absorption,
There life none is;
Where there is no mind absorption,
There life's breath is;
They who, in rapture, sit in mind absorption
Are verily fixed in Yoga of absorption.

Samadhi is end of yama and the rest,
Samadhi is consummation of Siddhis eight;
Who persevere in the path from yama to the end
Will in the end Samadhi attain.
