Devikalottara

(Introduction by Sri Bhagavan)

This work is one of the upa-agamas and explains the
supreme wisdom to be attained by mature souls and their mode
of life, expounded by the Supreme Lord Siva to Devi Parvati.
It is the essence of all Agama Sastras on matters of spiritual
knowledge. This is verily the boat which can rescue the mortals
struggling hard, sinking and rising, in the sorrowful ocean of
samsara of endless cycles of births and deaths and take them
by the direct path to the shore of liberation. Let all earnest
seekers after Truth, instead of groping in the dark, bewildered,
and losing their way, adopt the help of this straight path and
reach the supreme state to bliss and peace.

Invocation

Meditate in the Heart upon Lord Ganesa -- the silent,
non-dual, universal witness -- who is the nectar of divine
bliss and is full of grace, shining as the bountiful flowering of
aspirants following the path of spiritual wisdom revealed in
Devikalottara, which was expounded by Lord Ishwara into
the ears of Goddess Ishwari.

Note: In the original Tamil verse, the word `kari' means
`elephant', which denotes Lord Ganesa as per tradition, but
the word `kari' also means `witness', which denotes the
Universal Self, which is in line with Advaitic experience.

The Text

Devi [?]:

1. O Lord of all celestial beings! I yearn to know that path
of supreme wisdom and the code of conduct by adopting which
one can get liberation, so that all humanity may attain salvation.
I request you to enlighten me on them, out of your grace.

Ishwara :

2. O Queen among women! So that everyone may attain
knowledge, I shall clearly explain to you today the highest
knowledge and the discipline to be followed by which
discerning seekers will attain liberation, which is free from
any blemish and is difficult to describe.

3. O Lady with fair countenance! Understand that one
who is not able to realise the Truth in his Heart by this
knowledge of spiritual wisdom known as Kala Jnana, can
never attain it even by studying countless crores of sastras [?]
(scriptures) spread out like the sky.

4. Therefore cast aside all fears (on following this path)
and shed all doubts. Giving up attachment or desire for
anything, be ardent in seeking the ultimate knowledge with
wholehearted devotion and with a clear mind (without any
trace of confusion).

5. Claiming nothing as `mine', filled with compassion,
giving protection to all living beings so that no creature fears
you, yearning for liberation, absorbed in yoga (union of jiva [?]
and Para, fusion of individual self with the universal Self),
study this work Devikalottara and follow wholeheartedly and
steadfastly the single path shown therein.

58. I am not the gross body, nor am I the subtle body. I
am also not the causal body. I am the kinsman of the universe.
I am the One who is of the nature of transcendental knowledge.
I am moreover the eternal One, the Lord, the taintless One,
the One who is devoid of the states (of waking, dream and
sleep), the One who is devoid of the universe.

In our Natural state, actions, cause and result of such actions, and all the various other theories propounded in the scriptures do not exist. In fact, even the diverse world does not exist. As Such, even the worldly individual who is attached to the various attractions of the world is also non- existent

The Means by which this mind, which is restless and moves about quicker than the wind, can be brought under control, is indeed the means to obtain liberation ; it is indeed what is good for those who seek the permanent Reality, It itself is pure consciousness and the state of firmness ;Moreover it alone is righteous duty to be followed by discerning aspirants; it alone is the pilgrimage to holy waters; it alone is charity ; it alone is austerities. Know that there is no doubt about this.
