The ignorant prate that love and Shiva are two, but none of them knows that love alone is Shiva. When men know that love and Shiva are the same, love as Shiva they ever remain.

2007 Lord Creates Activating Saktis Jnana and Kriya

Vaikhari and rest of Sounds,
Maya and rest of Impurities,
Purusha and rest of Tattvas illusory
--All these,
Acting on Saktis, Jnana and Kriya,
The Lord True from time immemorial made.

2008 Lord is Atom-Within-Atom

The Lord is the Beginning of all,
He is the Atom-within-the-atom;
Divide an atom within the atom,
Into parts one thousand,
They who can thus divide
That atom within the atom
May well near the Lord,
He, indeed, is the Atom-within-the-atom.

2009 Seek the Jnana Way of Lord

Tiny unto the seed
Of the spreading banyan tree
Is the atom that is Jiva;
If by fire of Jnana
Your way purifies,
The dark Pasas that malign you
May well driven away be;
Seek the Divine way,
The Dancing Lord shows you.

2010 Jiva and Siva Commingling Stand

He within the atom (Jiva),
And the atom (Jiva) within Him
Commingling stand,
They know this not;
The peerless Lord pervades all
Unintermittent, in creation entire.

2011 Size of Soul

To speak of the size of Jiva
It is like this:
Split a cow's hair soft
Into a hundred tiny parts;
And each part into a thousand parts divide;
The size of Jiva is that one of part
Of the one hundred thousand.

2012 Siva's Infinite Size

Infinite great is my Lord,
Yet within the littleness of this body
He dwells permeating;
He is the Lord Supreme
Whom the Celestials cannot know;
As much as your Tapas is
So much also is He known.

2013 Practise Yoga in Perserverence

You may not for Yoga inclined be,
But if your Guru Illumined teaches you,
You may yet accomplish it;
And so perservere
In lives several;
And seeing you thus practise,
Siva's Form will in your thought arise.

2014 Guru Illumines You

Harassed are you
By Maya's manifestations;
But when the Guru Illumined
By His grace lights you up
Your troubles entire cease;
The Jiva illumined in Jnana
Will Turiya State reach.

2269. Mystery of Parting Life From Body

The Lord is the Para;
He is beginningless;
He is beyond five states of experience,
He is the Pure One,
Seated within the heart;
He is birthless;
Why this lovely body and life
He parts—
That mystery, I knew.

2270. 36 Saktis are Dynamic Aspects of Static Parapara

Sakti in Parapara is Para Sakti;
Sakti in Santhi is Chit Sakti;
Sakti in Paranand is Icca Sakti;
Sakti in luminous Bindu is Jnana Sakti;
Sakti in Maya is Kriya Sakti;
When Jiva these Saktis receive,
Then it reposes integral in the Divine.

2271. Beyond Tattvas is Divine Bliss

They who know Him
Beyond the Tattvas six times six
Truly know Him;
Beyond the Tattvas six times six
They receive His Grace;
They who have Knowledge True
Beyond the Tattvas six times six
Only to them, is He the Divine Bliss;
He the Hara
That is beyond the Tattvas,
Six times six.

2272. When Jiva is Rid of Malas by Siva-Sakti

Transcending the organs five (external)
And the four (internal),
In the (union) within of five (states) avastas,
The Jiva slumbers;
Then does the wondrous Lord
Appearing with Sakti of slender Form
Rid the Jiva of its poisons (Malas),
Forever to rejoice.

2273. Beyond Turiya is Turiya-Turiya or Para Turiya; and Paraatita Turiya

is Further Beyond
In Jagra-Turiya State
The Jiva realizes Self;
Then beyond are States
Turiya-Jagrat, Turiya Svapna, Turiya Sushupti, and Turiya-Turiya
In that Para Turiya State the Jiva is Para;
In the Turiya State still beyond, (Para-Turiya-atita)
Jiva becomes Siva.

2274. In Para-atita Turiya State Jiva Becomes Beyond-Param

In desire bereft of desires,
As Jiva aspires to Para-atita-turiya State
And steadfast perseveres in it,
He becomes Beyond-Param (Siva);
The tapasvins who practise not
Will never Param become;
They are forever fettered
In Pasas several.

2275. Freed of Maya, Jnana Dawns and Bliss Ensues

The Maya we seek to understand
Envelops Soul, inside and out;
The hypnosis it creates baffles thought and word;
When you are freed from it,
Your knowledge becomes purified;
It is transmuted into Sivananda
And becomes a protective roof over you.

2276. From Turiya to Turiyatita

The Jiva was in Turiya State;
Unto a swift steed
Was into the Turiyatita Jagra State led;
The Master
Thus had the (Karmic) jackals chased away;
And the Karmas stood howling,
Disappointed sore.

2277. In Turiyatita State Jiva Becomes Siva

In this Turiyatita Jagrat State
The Lord of Dance with Jiva in union stands
When that union takes place
Maya vanishes away;
That very day Jiva attains Siva Form.

2278 Maya Lights the Path to Turiyya and There Remains

If in Jagra State
Where Jiva is,
He upward, ascends,
Well may Maya serve
A lamp to light his path;
Then, when he reaches Turiya State,
He his Self realizes;
Albeit in that Turiya State
Maya will still be.
(The Soul should further ascend to the Turiyatita State.)

2279. Self-Realization in Turiya State is not the End

Knowing not your Self
You deemed body as Self;
When in Turiya you entered,
You realized the Self;
Even though you realized Self,
Birth's cycle will leave you not;
(Therefore, ascend further upward
Into the Turiyatita State)
And unite in Lord,
Pervasive and Pure.

2280. Beyond Turiya State is Union in Siva. This body is to birth subject,

Turiya State belongs to body and Jiva alike;
These subject to birth and death are;
When on them Grace of Holy Guru descends,
Two there is none,
Jiva in Siva unites one.

2281. Beyond Four States in Turiya is Para Turiya

If Jiva in Turiya State
Having experienced in succession
Jagra, Svapna, Sushupti states within,
Perseveres further,
Then he enters Para Turiya;
There verily Jiva becomes Para.

2282. End of Para Turiya is Siva Turiya

Succeeding Para Turiya Jagra State
Is the Para Turiya Svapna State
That engrosses the universe entire;
Then is Para Turiya Sushupti State
Where Upasantha (Peace beyond understanding) is;
That transcending, Jiva reaches Siva Turiya State.

2283. End of Para Turiya is Siva Turiya

Succeeding Para Turiya Jagra State
Is the Para Turiya Svapna State
That engrosses the universe entire;
Then is Para Turiya Sushupti State
Where Upasantha (Peace beyond understanding) is;
That transcending, Jiva reaches Siva Turiya State.

2284. Beyond the Ten Avastas in Jiva Turiya, Para Turiya and

Siva Turiya is the Eleventh State of Consciousness of Para Nandi (Siva)
Thus Jiva, who has Para become,
From Jiva Turiya onward
Up to Siva Turiya,
Ten avastas (States) experiences;
Then enters the State Eleventh
Where he merges into Truth of Para Nandi (Siva)
And finally goes beyond,
All eleven States thus ensured.

2285. Further Beyond Para Siva State is Paramam (Brahmam),

Paramparam and Para Maha Sivam
Beyond Para Siva is Paramam (Brahmam);
Beyond Paramam is Paramparam (Para Brahmam);
Thus are states ascending;
From Para Siva Jagra, to Para Siva Svapna, and to Para Siva Sushupti
The Jiva that has Para Siva become reaches
The Finite Truth that is Para Nandi.

2286. Nine Manifestations of Para Siva

Pertaining to Para Siva
Are the (Para) Sakti,
Para Nada and Para Bindu;
And Sadasiva, Brahma, and Hari;
Rudra the Lord of Devas,
And Mahesvara to count.

2287. True Knowledge

Knowing that not
They rule not the (Spiritual) Kingdom;
In pomp and vanity they indulge;
That indeed is sorrow;
They know not, He pervades all;
They know not
The sea-girt seven Worlds
Will a shamble be;
They know not
That Siva with Jiva and Body
Commingling stands.

2288. End Ego-Awareness; Self is Realized;

Perform penances true
That your Future holds;
Know thyself,
And the merciful Lord
His Grace confers;
When my ego awareness ended,
Then I knew my Self;
And bliss am I.

2289. Way of Self-Realization Through Thought Process

Think of gold jewellery,
Thought of gold metal is not;
Think of gold metal
Thought of jewellery is not;
Think of sense organs, Self is not;
Think of Self, sense organs are not.

2290. Sublimation of Thought

Think of wood
Image of toy-elephant recedes;
Think of toy-elephant
Image of wood recedes;
Think of elements five
Thought of Param recedes
Think of Param,
Thought of elements recedes.

2291. Knowledge of Siva, Sakti and Jiva (Si-Va-Ya) is Liberation

Transcending Tattvas
Six times six,
Abandoning
The letters "Na" and "Ma"
Knowledge Becoming,
Jiva thus liberated rises,
As letter "Ya;"
Merging in letter "Va" denoting Sakti
And in letter "Si" denoting Siva
Jiva ("Ya") becomes Si Va Ya
That Mukti is.

2292. Experiences in Para Turiya

The Turiya State holds
The Letters-Five (Panchakshara);
In the Para Turiya Jagra State
Are the letters Fifty and One;
In the Para Turiya Svapna State
Is Nada;
In the Para Turiya Sushupti State
Is Bodha;
Beyond appears Paramam (Brahmam).
In Para Turiya-Turiya State.

2293. Pure (Suddha) Experience and Supreme (Para) Experience Beyond Jiva Experiences

In Sakala condition of Jiva,
These five experiences are by Grace attained;
Then follows the Suddha Avasta (Pure Experience) State;
That in intensity experiencing,
The Para Avasta (Supreme Experience) of Nandi is attained;
Then, as before light darkness flees;
The Five Malas for ever vanish.

2294. State of Suddha Avasta (Pure Experience)

The limited sphere of Tattvas
Five times Five,
And Maya Impure,
--Unreal are they;
Leaving them,
Let Jiva ascend
Into the Sphere of Mamaya (Pure-Impure);
Penetrating it,
Further beyond
In the State of Para-Avasta, (Pure Experience)
That is Pure (Suddha);
There the Soul is All-Existence
And Non-Existence at once.

2295. Lord As Guru Guides the Soul's Journey

As Grace, He stood
As Param, He stood
As Love, He stood;
As one Form merged,
He stood;
He transcended experiences all,
But abandoned me not
He, the Lordly Guru, the Natha,
Of Divine Jnana

Siva is the Sun of Jnana

The darkness of contending Pasa,
And the ignorance vast
These flee fast,
Before the Jnana Light of Siva,
Even as when the luminous Sun rises,
The murky darkness, before him, flees.

The Primal Lord blesses all inhabitants of Earth below and the heavens above. From the soul’s blackest chamber, He dispels darkness by radiating from within the pure rays of His dazzling light.

Tirumantiram 435

Pervading all nature, Siva blesses all. But they know not the Truth and adore Him not. To them who adore Him Who is immanent, He is the golden stem of the lotus of the heart deep within.

Tirumantiram 1717

Let your awareness be unswerving, bound to the muladhara. Through the spinal shaft within, gaze into the inner void. See and yet see not. Hear and yet hear not. Thus sit in meditation. That is the sure means to bar death’s way. When pranayama is practiced in proper time-measure, breath retention will stand harmonized with prana. In him who trains breath that is prana, time and life remain inseparable.

Tirumantiram 591-592

Let all your thoughts be thoughts of Siva, and the Lord by His grace will reveal all. If your thoughts are Siva-saturated, He will abide ever so closely in you.

Tirumantiram 1582

Step by step, practice withdrawal of the mind and look inward. One by one, you will witness the myriad good things within. Now and here below, you may meet the Lord for whom the ancient Veda still searches everywhere.

Tirumantiram 578

Though they practice yoga for eight thousand years, still men do not see the Lord, sweet as ambrosia and delightful to the eye. But if, illumined, you seek Him within, He is there in you, as a reflection in a mirror.

14. THE FIT DISCIPLE

1703. Good Disciple follows Guru like a Shadow

O! disciple true!
In virtue, truth, compassion, discrimination and love
You pursue the Holy Feet of Guru true
Constant as unto a shadow;
You then gain the nectar of Finite Jnana in its crystal clarity,
And witness the many miracles it brings in train.

1702. True Disciple humbles before the Renunciate Vedantin

Vedanta is the way of renouncing desires;
And so, divert your life's course
And take to Siddhanta-Vedanta Way
And humble your head at the feet of Guru
That has renounced all in the Vedanta way
Then verily are you disciple true.

1700. ' Rules of Instruction '

Impart divine knowledge only to those fully ripe to receive it,
Taking the disciple gently to the limits of the Infinite Vast;
You facing east or south, your disciple facing west or north
Thus instruct, the Sakti of Lord centered in mind.

1698. ' The Power of Guru's Feet '

"Oh! my Holy Master!
Do grace me with your feet on my head,"
-Thus, I prayed, this day;
And as he placed his feet
All births to vanish;
This body that was blessed thus
Received Grace of Aruk Sakti
And I became a Jnani ripe,
Forever, blemish devoid.

1699. ' What comes of touch of Guru's Feet '

He is the master of the difficult paths four*;
He is the seeker incessant of Jnana divine;
And as he placed his feet on my head,
Higher and higher, my ardour in Jnana soared,
Higher and higher, my love for Gurupara welled up.

1697. Yet other qualities of Good Disciple

He scans that which divides the Real and the Unreal
He melts in the soul of this being
And with Siva's Grace to guide,
He receives Jnana in devotion true;
And he humbles himself before Lord
And seeks the bliss of His Sakti;
He is the fit one, the disciple good and true.

A sattvic he is;

Abhorrent of recurring cycle of births;
Straight in Dharma's path he easy walks;
He, sure, is disciple good and true.

1668. No Grace for false Disciple

He thinks not of sundering soul's fetters,
Nor of annihilating world's desires;
He strives not to Mukti attain,
Nor aught of Tattvas and the way ahead;
But takes a wayward course,
A disciple exceeding mad;
To him is not the gift of Grace granted.

You beckon them, but they hearken not

The mother's milk flows sweet in the mouth,
But even the dear and near know not
How the mother's breast becomes so;
Verily, it is the Formless Being that shapes this body-form.

Siva Jnani that seeks deliverance through Jnana
Is a shrine unto himself, unique of status;

They howl about unto dogs at foot of gallows;
They peck about like vultures at carrion;
They frisk about like monkeys in merriment
They of false Jnana;
But quiescent are the Siva Jnanis true,
Dead to the world, though living in body and senses.

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.
