XXIV. Whoever practices Yoga is one who attained mental excellence. One of this type is a person of inner renunciation, called so on account of the fact that he has renounced all illusory objects. That is the reason why outwardly he conducts himself as absolutely inert. He is this the two-fold renouncer, both within and without. He is spoken as the unfettered soul though embodied.


Thus ends the song on Jivanmukta composed by Sri Dattatreya, the Lion of Vedanta.

XXIII. What is that which the wise and the knowing have known? It is that liberation which is the condition where the mind becomes steadfast. That is the established Truth. He who is aware of this is the unfettered soul though embodied.

XXII. The notion of this and thus and so forth is a fiction opposed to truth and that is commonly known as volition. It is this mental activity that is the cause in ordinary life of the distinctions of I and mine. He who is aware of this as the result of the knowledge and lack of self will become entirely free of volitional activity. Such a one is spoken of as the unfettered soul though embodied.

XXI. This knowledge i.e. manas defined as 'He I am' "Soham" is the Spirit 'Chaitanya' even as the bead is in the string. The reality presented as 'He am I' is the highest Brahman itself. It is formless. One who knows this Truth is said to be liberated in life, Jivanmukta.

VI. Brahman is immanent in all that exists. For this reason it is devoid of difference or identity, that is it cannot be defined in terms of difference (bheda), non-difference (abheda), or difference-non-difference (bhedabheda). The person who sees Brahman strictly in this manner is said to be liberated though alive.

Even as the moon which appears manifold when reflected in water, in the form of lakes, rivers or pots and yet is one single entity, Atman the self appears as many when it takes on different forms ( and yet is only one, being absolutely indivisible). Only that person who knows the truth of Atman is said to be liberated in life, Jivanmukta.

II. The liberation while the individual is still alive is called 'Jivanmukti'. It connotes a definite state. If it is identified with the death of the physical body, then that liberation which results from the physical body applies equally to the animals such as dogs and pigs.

I. I offer again and again humble salutations to that great Being which is immanent in all creation, which shines forth as consciousness (chit) and is ever liberated, which is the witness of all actions and true knowledge and which is no other than my inner most Self.
