' Shiva-Gita '
Hearing my words on the supreme knowledge as a means to release, chanting My names, giving themselves to meditating on me, the Gods ñ all of them ñ at the end of their lives attained union with Me in days of yore. From such a knowledge all the things are seen everywhere by them as manifestations of My glory. ||50-51||
From Me alone everything is born. In Me, everything is established. In me, everything is resolved. I am that Brahman which is secondless. ||52||
I alone am the subtler than the subtlest; similarly I am the greatest. I am the world and am pure (unsullied by creation). I am the most ancient. I am the complete being. I am the sovereign. I am the golden One and of the very form of auspiciousness (Sivam). ||53||
I (grasp) without hands and (walk without) feet; I am that inestimable power; I see without eyes; I hear without ears. I am every manifest form and there is no one who knows Me. I am ever the consciousness. ||54||
I am alone the One who revealed by all the Vedas. I am the author of Vedanta, and I am alone the knower of the Vedas. There is no merit or demerit in Me; there is no destruction for Me; nor are there births, bodies, senses and intellects for Me. ||55||
The earth, water, fire, air nor space (the five elements) find no place in Me. Thus knowing the nature of the supreme Self indwelling in the cave of the heart, partless and secondless, witness unto all, devoid of cause and effect, one attains the pure supreme Self (that I am). ||56||
O Rama of great intelligence! One who knows Me truly, he alone and none else, in all the worlds attains the fruit of liberation.î ||57||
Thus ends the sixth chapter called the Glory of God in the Siva-Gita which is an upani?ad delivering Brahma-vidya and a yoga sastra occurring as a dialogue between Siva and Rama in the Padma Purana.
