The knowledge of brahman

  • There is nothing far or near ;
    Nothing as high or nothing as low ;
    He is the same within and without ;
    Amrit says for all and sundry (1)

  • The lord makes possible impossible
    And impossible possible ;
    He is omnipotent
    That impells to keep silent (2)

  • There are two streams - Nirguna and Saguna,
    Nirguna without attributes and Saguna with ones.
    But Amrit, the liberated, is above duality ;
    The silence removes the intellectual fatigue (3)

  • aBurning coal on the pile of straw,
    Branch of a tree without any roots,
    Water with nothing to contain it in ;
    All contradictions
    Resolve in BRAHMAN
    Amrit says to view them together (4)

  • It is not false ; it is not true
    It is not beyond the coast, it is not on this side
    The senses and the mind can not scan it
    Amrit contemplates the real nature (5)

  • It does not belong to a particular caste,
    Not to a sub-caste, nor to an asrama,
    There is no distinction between the high and the low ;
    Amrit says it is immutable ONE, even the veda testify it || (6)

  • It is indescribable, final and boundless
    Without characteristics, total and matchless
    Indomitable, stable and unborn Amrit says
    Unfathomable, unapproachable always beyond (7)

  • In the state liberation, There is no meditation,
    No meditator Nor any object of meditation ;
    There is none who is known,
    Nor one who knows, nor the act of knowing,
    So testifies the revered sage, Sri Amrit Nath ji (8)

  • Who is to bind and who can be bound,
    Who will unbind and whom will he
    All is merely idea alone,
    What is there in speech and silence | (9)

  • No yogi perfect, No aspirant for perfection,
    Nothing that cannot be attained
    Or that which can be attained ; No action, no medium of action
    Amrit says nothing that binds, Nor is one to be bound (10)

  • No love, nor lover, Who is the beloved and whose belover ?
    Remembrance and negligence
    Do they mean anything When there is none who knows
    The knowledge and the known?(11)

  • The truth unusual and unique,
    Unmani is only a state and idea,
    Waking dreaming and deep slumber -
    The phases in ignorance, the fourth as the witness (12)

  • Amrit, the sage revered, exhorts,
    The aspirants, to realise
    Worldly dealings are only a dream,
    The self is in the slumber state
    The fourth is the truth
    Of the BRAHMAN - This should be realised (13)

  • Amrit, the sage of divine,
    reveals the truth unique ;
    The word, the feel of touch, form
    taste and fragrance
    Are forms of element, five in number.
    The essentials of these are tanmatras,
    The subtler aspects of the elements ;
    Thus says the sage (14)

  • The eyes, the nose, the tongue and the ears
    And the skin are the media of perception ;
    The hands, the feet, the tongue, the anus
    And the phalus are the tools of action || (15)

  • The abode of soul,
    The body physique,
    Has many aspects ;
    The gross, the subtle,
    The causal the super causal,
    The BRAHMAN alone, the KEWALA,
    The truth of being,
    Is worthy O searching and of finding (16)

  • The gross body functions
    In the state of waking up ;
    The subtle in the dreaming one ;
    The causal, the karana in the slumber
    And KEWALA aspect works in the fourth || (17)

  • The twenty four are all real -
    The five gross elements,
    The ten media and the tools
    Of perception and action
    The four aspects of the inner self
    The mind, the intellect, attending faculty
    and ego - the self awareness
    These constitute the functional body. || (18)

  • All twenty four active in waking
    nine work in the state of dream,
    In the state of slumber they all merge
    In the fourth, they all merge into that which is one (19)

  • The three states of consciousness,
    The waking dreaming and slumber
    Are distinct for the practitioner of yoga,
    For the accomplished one, the fourth is in the first (20)

  • The five sheaths, The three attributes,
    The three states, Relate to the body
    The true self, the atman Is different than these
    One should discern (21)

  • As long a there is error,
    there is dualism,
    Error rectified, then only oneness
    Amrit says, in final reckoning
    Neither two nor one
    Neither high nor low, neither good nor bad (22)

  • The world is the game of the supreme,
    He himself being the player.
    There is nothing which matters in play
    Å¡an+kara sums in fact the truth (23)

  • The self reflects all around
    There is nothing else but him
    ’I and you’ the play of words,
    This explains the sage Amrit Natha (24)

  • Four Vedas six Scriptures
    And Gita divine bear testimony,
    Strong and firm - the one supreme
    Permeates creation evenly and totally.
    So says Å¡an+kara (25)
