25. Good actions and good conduct have been prescribed
only to guide the seeker towards the path of acquiring
knowledge. Therefore, giving up even salamba yoga1 in which
an object (such as a mantra or a form of God) is meditated
upon in the mind, stay steadfast in your real state (sahaja
swarupa), where the outside world is not perceived.
Note: Actions prescribed include worship of Siva in one's
mind as well as outside. The various ceremonies prescribed
in Agama Sastras for worshipping Siva in saguna form in a
temple are covered in good conduct.
1Salamba yoga literally means yoga with support (alamba), that is any spiritual
practice in which the mind clings to some object as a support. See also
verses 35, 38, 40, 41.
