Atma Siddhi Shastra - Self Realization
At Nadiad in Kaira District, Shrimad wrote out his famous 'Atmasiddhi' in the form of a poetic dialogue in 142 verses, at the suggestion and request of Sri Sobhagyabhai, in the gathering darkness of the night when Shri Ambalal stood with a lentern in his hand while the composition was on. The prose version by the name "A letter about the six fundamental truths' could not be easily memorised by the aspirants and hence, Sri Sobhagyabhai's request to Shrimad to put the matter in verse. This succinct and accurate composition is a masterpiece in philosophical literature. the author has, in a simple form of question and answer, explained the gist of Jainism and of all true religion namely the six fundemental truths, that the soul exists, that it is eternal, that it is the author of its activities, that therfore it is responsible for the results of its activites, that it aspires for liberation and that this is achieved by following a right kind of religion.
Shrimad instructed Sri Ambalabhai to make out four copies of the manuscript and give one copy each, to his close and deserving disciples namely, to Sri Sobhagyabhai, Sri Ambalal himself, Sri Lalluji Maharaj and lastly to Zaveri Maneklal Ghelabhai. He instructed to Sri Lalluji to study and reflect upon the Atmasiddhi in solitude and not to make it a subject of collective reading or public discourse.
A Short Summary
In the first 44 verses the subject is introduced- The truth that without self-knowledge, the worldy pains cannot be completely removed is cleary demonstrated, the mechanical attachement to the path of sacrificial activities and the theoretical parrotlike dry as bone repetition of the different natures of the soul and the body as found in the theoretical academicians of the Vedanta system are declared as two major obstacles in the path of the aspirant for self-realization. The special charateristics of the persons who belong to the above two lines of thinking are humourously described and all this is done to remove these drawbacks from all aspirants for soul-saving knowledge and experience. Then, the way to remove these defects or to keep them miles away from the spritual pilgrim, the resort to the advice of an enlightened self-realized Guru is advised and advocated. All the authentic scriptures helpful to the pilgrim should be studied and followed under the guidance of such a Guru. Then only truth can be grasped and right experience of reality can be obtained. The importance and impelling need of a living enlightened Guru is repeatedly emphasized in order to keep clear of pride, conceit, and ignorance. Humility is declared as the root of right religion and therefore a disciple is advised to serve his master without any reservation. On the other hand one should not pose to be a Guru without developing proper qualities himself. An unmerited Guru degenerates into a bad type of worldy person, and he leads his followers to deep darkness and bondage.
According to Shrimad, only a truly enlightened Guru deserves to be a spritual guide. To follow others is a sheer waste of time.
Later on, the doubts of the aspirant regarding the six fundemental truths, are posed and considered and conclusively replied so as to dispel them for ever and to help the disciple to see the truth in its purity. Regarding the nature of the soul it is said that as it is quite different from the body, no bodily sense organ can perceive the soul. The unreasonable obduracy to try to see the soul by any or all of the physical sense organs results from the attachment of the soul to the living body. Philosophically the soul and the body are two absolutely seperate entities like the sward and its scabbard. The soul is neither a body nor the senses, nor breath. The soul is the source of organic unity of a living being. The soul is the all-knower, always the subject and co-ordinator of the information collected through the senses. The soul is conscious, knowing and blissful in nature. The conscious and the unconscious differ in kind and not in degree. Hence the unconscious cannot probe the conscious. But the conscious is a quite powerful light to understand the unconscious. Hence, the superiority of the conscious over the unconscious.
Such a soul eternally exists, it has no beginning and no end. The body which is composed, has an end but the unique soul is neither composed nor decomposed.
Though the soul and body are two different realities both are found to be cooperating in a living organism. One helps or hinders the other. All creation and dissolution can be understood by the conscious soul but the conscious soul can be known only by itself and by no other physical or visible means. Hence, the talk of the source and decay of the soul is unmeaning.
Shrimad confirms the belief in births and rebirths.
An unconscious body cannot act by itself. If an animal moves, it can only do so as directed by the conscious soul living in it. Hence, the soul is the author of all activities. It is not the nature of the soul always to act, though no activity can be without it, it can cease to act also. Metaphysically the soul has no reason to act and so it is unattached to the body, but in worldy pratical life we see the soul propelling the living body to various activities to suit its motives formed by its association with and attachment to the body.
Futher Shrimad has elaborated the Jaina doctrine of Karma and its various categories, and has shown that no principle of God is needed to explain animal and human activities. Activities naturally bring the fruits enjoined with them and no divine force is needed for this arrangement.
He uses a fine logic to show that, as doing good or bad actions results in enjoying good or bad rewards, not doing them is the way to be free from their results.
The first path leads to bondage, the second to liberation. To say that only a conscious soul can initiate activity, does not mean that is must always act and as doing something brings some results, not doing it should bring the opposite results. If activity, good or bad, will lead on to bondage, keeping away from it should lead one to its opposite namely release. The great Tirthankaras have reached the state of non-attachment to all bodily forms, hence, they are eternally free. Release is the fruit of retirement from action. In the Siddha state, the Soul is absolutely separated from all Karmas and so this is the state of complete release. In this state the real nature of the soul is experienced for ever.
The soul's long standing infatuation to bodily forms is removed by the enlightening knowledge and guidance of the right Guru just like dispelling a long standing enveloping darkness by a ray of light. By attachment, avarice and ignorance, the soul binds itself, removing them with the help of his Guru and the scriptures it obtains release. Wrong perception of truth is removed by right understanding of the scriptures under the guidance of an enlightened Guru.
The wrong habits of behaviour can be removed by a spirit of non-attachment to worldy activities. This is the correct remedy of the soul's ills. By anger one binds actions and by forgiveness he loosens the knots of actions and becomes free himself. Hence, forgiveness is declared by Shrimad Rajchandra as the gateway to liberation. Forgiveness destroys bondage to actions. Whoever, high or low, follows this path of liberation will certainly attain the goal. This path, in brief, consists in quelling down the excitements of anger, honour or pride, delusion and greed, in harbouring the desire form liberation and none else, in feeling uneasiness in worldy activities, in developing compassion towards all living beings and in feeling sympathy for all aspirants for liberation and in praying and working for their release. Whoever possess these qualities is on the correct path and he will certainly be liberated. By following this path one sharpens his spritual insight, purfies his being, loosens his attachment with the body and burns his actions in the fire of his spritual consciousness, gains power and light and in the end releases himself and becomes a guide to others for similar work. As this stage the released soul is neither acting nor it is bothered with the fruits of action. This is the essense of every good religion and this is the only accepted path to soul's liberation.
In the end, in nine verses Shrimad has described the effect of this soul-saving knowledge on the disciple and the disciple pays his grateful homage to his Guru for his help and advice.
In the final fifteen verses, the whole subject is brought to its natural closee. It is shown that this work contains the fundemantal of all six systems of Indian Philosophy too.
Thus Atma Siddha is the quintessence of the truths of all scriptures.
English Translation by Shree Brahmachariji Govardhandasji
Religious Approach Right and Wrong
1. As real self I never knew, so suffered I eternal pain, I bow to Him my master true, Who preached and broke eternal chain.
2. In this degrading Age, who knows Salvation-way, mostly unkown? For seekers true, this Gospel shows, Unhidden as their fingers own.
3. Some follow rites forgetting self, Some learned fools believe freedom, Misled are both, none knows the self, Mericful state, I feel for them.
4. The first are struck in outward deeds, With heart unturned, they save and serve, But prohibit they knowledge-seeds, Believing old as gold preserve.
5. No bondage, freedom new or old, The other preach, in words, the soul, Attachment all in acts behold, So word-wise they get not the goal.
6. Unattachment and all fruitful, If you have knowledge of the soul, Of self-knowledge they are the tool, The real knowledge is the goal.
7. And if the heart contains no merits, The real knowledge can not shine, If only satisfied with merits, They prove the block to knowledge fine.
8. Whatever wherever is fit, The seeker understands and acts, Without this virtue, count unfit, For seekership of real facts.
9. Who serves true master's feet, obeys, Leaving aside his whims and views, He knows the truth, what Master says, Acertains his own self abstruse.
10. Self-knowledge, equal eye to lot, Behaves as destined, speech unique, Authentic in all schools of thought, True teacher's qualities mystic.
11. Indirect Jin (Lord) cannot oblige, As does the direct Teacher true, Without this key, would not arise-The thought of self, or searching through.
12. Without true Teacher's exposition, None can know the Lord as Lord, In ignorance no obligation, Such understanding makes him God.
13. True scriptures soul and all expound, to seekers fit, unerring guide, Where direct Teacher is not found, 'Tis next best for one's safer side.'
14. Or whatever true Teacher said, For thinking deep,daily pratice, Forgetting sects, popular head, Opposition of families.
15. If one controls his self-conceit, Gets surely as infinite souls- The final state that is most fit, So says innocent Jin in scrolls.
16. One's self-conceit is checked at once, in direct Teacher's nearness, To root it out use other means, It grows two-fold, in general sense.
17. In one has true Teacher's guidance, Putting aside one's whims and views, Sectarian ways, obstinacy, 'Tis termed true Faith, for direct cause.'
18. One cannot kill by self-conceit-Foes pride and all, but seek refuge True Teacher's, easily defeat, All mighty foes' extinction huge.
19. Who knew full soul, attainted Godhood, By means of sermons such sublime, Reveres his Teacher of true mood, Not yet perfect for former crime.
20. Such system of Reverence so deep, The lord proclaimed in holy Books, Profit thereof they only reap, Few fortunates, who know the nooks.
21. If any untrue teacher takes, Advantage of such reverence, Goes down into the deep birth-lakes, Delusion great is dangerous.
22-23. This fact the seekers understand, The bigots draw teh sense perverse, Impartial description, attend. Of Bigots' badges, soul-aimless.
Characteristics of a Religious Bigot
24. Some bigots follow false teachers, Who outwardly renounced the world, Or their hereditary preachers, But soul-aimless, believe their world.
25. Some confine their own talent, In pompous godly congregation, Jin's pictorial form and height, Or superhuman revelation.
26.Even in presence of true Teachers, The bigot takes the perverse side, Confirms his former false preachers, To mostly gratify his pride.
27. Celestial abodes, universal lores, He takes for inherent knowledge, Sectarian forms and creed adores, believing cause of final stage.
28. Is proud of vows, ignorant all, Of mental yearning for world-fame, He does not heed to inner call, Thus loses chance, remains the same.
29. Or talk of original state, Of souls, refutes pratical ways, Lip-wisdom is not heave's gate, Without true means he waste his days.
30. He who follows one unduly, Not expert in true soul-notion, Neither praticing it truly, Is drowned in this vast world-ocean.
31. For one's prestige and selfishness, If one lets his ideals go, Consider that too foolishness, The bigot he unfit also.
32. Controls no passions and the heart- Contains no unattachment true, No frankness and no open heart, Unfortunate that bigot too.
33. The bigot's badges thus described, To give up bigotry for good, Soul-Seeker's virtues now prescribed, Are for attaining supreme good.
The Charateristics of a True Seeker of Self
34. Sainthood is there where's true self-knowledge, Soul-seekers follow such true Teachers, Not family-preist or one who plays, On worldly stage the part of preachers.
35. The company of the Teacher true, Directly does the greatest good, Soul-seekers all accept this view, Complete obedience understood.
36. The path of perfection is the same, In all times past, present , future, Its path pratical worth the name, Acceptable if helps soul-nature.
37. Determines thus and tries to find, The proximity of true Teachers, No ideal else that eats the mind, The soul alone for all soul-seekers.
38. See seekership in soul-compassion, Suppression of all passions four, The hope of only liberation, Dejection of such rebirth-tour.
39. Unless on reaches such as state, No company of teachers good, Nor soul-suffering gets a gate, Cannot attain the freedom-road.
40. While one comes up to such a state, The sermon of the saint awakes-The inner-thought, that is good fate, Soul-seeker's sleep so deep it breakes.
41.With inner-thought, self knowledge shines,That knowledge delusion roots out, The topmost state the seeker climbs, Thus gets the salvation, no doubt.
42. Six facts I say in this Gospel, A dialogue between the two, To stir the inner-thought so well, For brining home the path so true.
The Statement of the six Fundamental Truths
43. The soul exists, see it eternal, Accepts bondage, receives the fruit, It can be free, take means devotional, ignorance is the bondage-root.
44. Six subjects or six schools of thought, Are here described as seers great, In abstract scriptures strictly taught, For understanding soul concrete.
Existence of the Self
(a) The Disciple's Doubt
45. The pupil doubts the soul's existence, Is out of sight, its form unknown, In any way no experience, No-where is soul, cannot be shown.
46. The body, senses or the breath, Can the soul, all else is false, How can one know the soul ere death? No clear signs I see as walls.
47. Is there's the soul, why it's not known? As pots and clothes, it should be seen; If there is soul's existence own, Arguments mine are true, I mean.
48. Thus there's no soul, futile all means-For freedom of the soul-of saints, Destroy my doubts by any means, To make my heart free from all taints.
(b) The True Teacher's reply:
49. The Teacher true does so explain, The body and the soul seem one, Distinct are both, the signs are plain, Remove the body- infatuation.
50. The body and the Soul seem one, Distinct are both, but this deceives, Alone the body infatuation, Distinct are both as swords and sheaths.
51. Ah! one that sees the sight and knows, Experiences one unconcealed, Indisputable sign that shows, The Soul itself to all revealed.
52. Each sense has its own subject -knowledge, The knowledge of all sense-objects, The soul possesses, 'its not strange The ear hears, the soul rejects.
53. The body cannot know the soul, Nor senses, neither knows the breath, All do their deeds, if there's the soul, If it goes off, it is called death.
54. In all the states the soul separate, Is seen always as consciousness, Distinctive mark is accurate, To ascertain the soul's presence.
55. You know the pots and clothes and all, Thus them believe but not the knower, If pots and clothes exist big, small, Why not the soul with knowledge-power?
56. Supreme in thought, though bodies thin, In fat, strong bodies no cleverness, This proves the body is the inn, And not the soul, there's no oneness.
57. The natures of the soul and matter, are clearly quite different, Can never be one of character, See ages all: past, future, present.
58. O! one that doubts the soul's existence, He himself the soul must be, 'Without the doubter's obvious presence, Can there be doubt?' surprises me.
Permanance or Eternity of the Self
(a) The Disciple's Doubt
59. By thinking deep upon your points, Of soul's existence, I allege, That there must be the soul who joints, The diverse parts of this knowledge.
60. The second doubt now I put forth, The soul cannot be eternal, The contact of the body's birth, Destruction of union visual.
61. Or things are transient, constant change, I seen in every living being, And sustances without knowledge, I see, thus, there's no eternal thing.
(b) The True Teacher's Reply
62. The body is only adherence, The object seen, lifeless, with forms, Who knows the soul's genesis, hence, Or death thereof? Think of the norms.
63. The seer of the rise and fall, Must be quite different from the scene, Can hear the dead their death-roll-call? Or ere one's birth what can be seen?
64. Compounds of elements can be seen, But not the soul that's orginal, The soul is the seer and not the seen, Nothing can create the soul eternal.
65. From matter consciousness may rise, Or consciousness might it create, Is not experience of the wise, It never happens, say the great.
66. If out of any element, One is not created at all, It cannot be put to an end, The soul is seen thus eternal.
The Eternity of the Soul is now Inferentially Proved
67. In being like snakes anger's untaught, It shows the former birth's habit, Therefore the wise have deeply thought, The soul has lost body, not it.
68. One sees in childhood, youth and age, There's knowledge of being the same, So see the soul's all states but change, Remaining ever substance same.
69. One who describes absolute change, Of everything at every moment, Must be the same who knows and says, This falsifies his own statement.
70. Nothing is lost aboslutely, See water changes as the steam, If consciousness is off totally, Find out the ocean of soul-stream.
The Self is the Author of its Actions
(a) The Disciple's Doubt
71. The third doubt as the pupil's plea, The soul himself does no bondage, Or bondage acts itself ugly, Affixed by nature, or as knowledge.
72. The soul is unalloyed for ever, 'Tis bondage that is really bound, Or God is goading what's soul's power? Therefore the soul remains unbound.'
73. It's of no use to try for freedom, The soul binds not , else binds for ever, Thus I see carelessness is wisdom, Unchanged is nature whatsoever.
(b) The True Teacher's Reply
74. In bondage if the soul not acts, Who can accept the bondage worse? Examine minutely the facts, No conscious acts in lifelessness.
75. In any way if soul is still, No bondage it acquires ever, It's thus no nature's work so ill, Nor character of soul's own power.
76. If soul is so bondageless quite, To you it appears not why? Unalloyed is soul, that's right, To one who knows his self, else dry.
77. God does not bind, nor helps creation, Perfection(purity) of the soul is God, If He instigates, where's perfection? Nothing He does, such is the Lord.
78. If one himself really knows, The soul behaves in only knowledge, But binds himself in ignorance, As childish plays in younger age.
The Soul is Enjoyer and Sufferer of its Actions
79. The soul may bind, but not receives, The fruits thereof, who likes the worse? No knowledge lifeless bondage has, How can it allot the fruit as worth?
80. Believe fruit-giver God imparital, Defective Godhood sounds unwell, In any other ways the soul, Receiver of the fruits, don't tell.
81. Without good God chaos must shine, No proper place for good, bad deeds, To distribute ill fruits or fine, Impartial person must be needs.
(b) The True Teacher's Rely
82. The soul-activity is animate all, Impure thoughts are self-bondages, Soul-strength vibrates, Infinite small-Gas-forms of bondage form the cage.
83. Understands not nector or poison, that it should cure or kill the eater, The soul gets fruits of what is eaten, Thus bondage bears fruits bad or sweeter.
84. See one errant and one empress, Without some causes, no results strange, Both human beings, unevenness- Is due to bad or good bondage.
85. Fruit-giver God is not required, By nature bondage fructifies, No more the soul the juice enjoyed, The bondage falls, without surprise.
86. The place and things of various kinds, There are eternal heaven and hell, The truth is deep beyond you finds, It's here exposed in a nut-shell.
The Soul can Be Liberated
(a) The Disciple's Doubt
87. The soul may bind and get the fruit, But never can it get the freedom, Infinite time has passed, the root-Of birth and death is not undone.
88. Good deeds give heaven and bad, hell, The soul is errent and world wheel, What state is bondageless, please tell, Try any way, result is nil.
(b) The True Teacher's Reply
89. As good or bad deeds give the fruit, Non-action too is fruitful, due, O! wise, with talent see acute- There's freedom from the bondage true.
90. Infinite time has passed till now, For good or bad ideas maintain- The chain of bondage anyhow, At hand is freedom, break the chain.
91. Absolute loss of bodies and all, Puts forth the freedom-state-renown, Eternal status of the soul, With happiness infinite own.
There is a Path of Soul's Liberation
(a) The Disciple's Doubt
92. May there be freedom of the soul, There's no irrefutable means, By which, of time infinite all- The bondages may lose bobbins.
93. Or many a creed and schools of Thought, Show steps to freedom differently, What step is true, I can't make out, What must I choose, (I) ask reverently
94. What caste or garb leads one to freedom, Is not determined, all differ, The true religion must be one, So many baffle, when they whisper.
95. Thus I conclude the means of freedom, Does not exist in any way, What is the use of such a wisdom, Of soul's existence, ever-stay?
The disciple concludes
96. Your five replies satisfied me, About that I am doubtless now, If I now know the means ah! me! Full fortunate I feel freed how!
(b) The True Teacher's Reply:
97. Convinced you are of five replies, The same way means you shall know soon, An answer comes, the doubt soon flies, The way to freedom is a boon.
98 The bondage-cause is self-ignorance, Self-steadiness is freedom-cause, Ignorance is like darkness, trance, The knowledge-torch brings it to pause.
99. The bondage-causes whatsoever, Follow path of bondages, Destroy those causes, being clever, That path of freedom for all ages.
100. Attachment, hatred, ignorance- Are three chief knots of bondages, The path of freedom, find at once, If they fall off, leave no traces.
101. The soul that's living, conscious beauty, Quite free from all deluding views, That leads to perfect purity, Serves for the means of freedom huge.
102. The bondage has infinite forms, The chief are eight, with one foremost, 'Deluding Karma' the name adorns, To cut it off, take pains utmost.
103. It pollutes Faith and Conduct both, Unfailing means accordingly, Enlightenment by Teacher's truth, Unattachment true distinctly.
104. All experience that passions bind, Their antidotes as forgiveness, Make one free from that bondage-kind, No doubt there is, it's common sense.
105. If one gives up self-guiding whim, And blind religious persuit, creed, By following this Gospel-cream, He has few births, no doubt indeed!
106. Six questions of six doctrines asked, Foundation of True Faith They lay, If mind in these is doubtless fixed, The path of freedom that's, saints say.
107. Look not to caste-or garb-distinction, The path aforesaid is essential, Whoever takes it gets Liberation, No distinction in status final.
The qualities of a true self-seeker or the Spritual aspirant for Liberation
108. Mark knowledge-thirst: inner compassion, Suppression of all passions four, The hope of only Liberation, Dejection of such rebirth-tour.
109. To such aspirants true Teacher's preaching, Inculcates faith, awakeness vision, They are inspired by such true teaching, They deeply think for purification.
110. They give up bias for blind faith, Self-guiding views, follow precept-Of true Teachers, earn right faith, Where's no discord or party-spirit.
111. Either they have soul-experience, Attention to it continuous, Or self- existence - conviction, Internal vision's Faith so glorious.
112. As Faith grows deep, false faith falls down, Rises right conduct gradually, Full non-attachment is the crown, Of conduct right perpetually.
113. Continous flow of knowledge pure, Of one's self-nature unalloyed, Is termed the perfect knowledge sure, Liberated he is though embodied.
114. A dream of million years ends soon, When one awakes, so self-knowledge, When shines, goes off one's self-delusion, Of time eternal: it's not strange.
115. Let go the body-infatuation, And you will not have bondage new, You will not have deed-fruitation, This is Religion's secret true.
116. This true Religion leads to Freedom, You are image of Liberation, You are undisturbable Wisdom, You are infinite knowledge, vision.
117. Enlightened, pure, full consciousness, Self-brilliant, home of happiness, What more to say? Have eagerness, Think deep and you shall realise this.
118. This sums up all absolute view, Of all wise men, who knew the soul, The dialogue ends. The Teacher true, Absorbs himself in nature cool.
The Disciple's Enlightenment results from the above Discourse.
119. The pupil praises his true Teacher, "I know what I had never known, By teaching of my own true Teacher, Ignorance passed and knowledge shone.
120. I knew my self as pure consciousness, Immortal, ever-lasting, strong, Above all body-states ageless or deathless, Perpetual existence, no wrong.
121. In delusion one does the deeds, Receives the fruits, but non-doer, He is, when sows the knowledge-seeds, And constantly remains the knower.
122. Or as pure consciousness is acts, The fruit as consciousness it reaps, Without volition see these facts, Thus call the soul as does, receives.
123. The perfect pure state of one's self, Is taught to be true Liberation, The way to it is right one's self, This true Saints' path is intuition.
The Disciple Addresses his Guru
124. Thanks! the Holy True Teacher, Unfathomable ocean of compassion, I'm highly obliged, Oh! good Teacher, The pupil poor has no expression.
125. What should I offer to you, Lord? In soul-comparison all is trifle, The soul is gifted by the Lord, I wish to act to your oracle.
126. Hencefoward this my body and all, Are at your feet, I wish to serve, Your humble servant, poor soul, Even servant's state I don't deserve.
127. Explanations of doctrines six! As swords from sheaths so clearly, The self is shown by you distinct, You obliged me immeasurably.
128. Six schools of though lie in six doctrines, If one thinks deeply in details, The vital truth he ascertains, Undoubtedly, he never fails.
129 There's no disease as self-delusion, The well-versed doctor's Teacher true, The Teacher's precept's prescription, Thought, concentration's medicine due.
130. If you hope for Soul-Reality, True self-effort you must begin, Depending on fate, destiny, Destroy not self-searching, I mean.
131. By hearing words of view absolute, Let not on give up formal means, Attending to the view absolute, One should perform all freedom-means.
132. Neither absolute view one-sided, Nor stand-point pratical alone, In this Gospel is emphasized, But both together are due shown.
133. Sectarian views, self-guiding whims, Are not right stand-point pratical, Nor right absolute view, it seems, Without self experience, it's oral.
134. There were the seers long ago, There are in present times alive, In times to come they shall be so, The path's the same that they revive.
135. All souls are like the perfect ones, Self-knowledge leads to perfection, Auxiliary cause is obedience- To Teacher's word, Jin-condition.
136. Who put forward the subject-cause, And leave the auxiliary one, In delusion they firmly pause, And can't attain the perfection.
137. Lip-wise are some, pretending heart, They have no love lost for the seer, They aid senseless, play pitable part, Have seer's show, delusion-dear.
138. Awakened seeker's heart contains, Compassion, peace, forgivness, truth, An equal-eye in loss or gains, Unattachment, donation, truth.
139. You find extinction or suppression, Of infatuation as a rule, In seer's heart, there's no delusionl, Elsewhere you find delusion full.
140. The seer's state is thus described, The world to him is like a dream, Or left-off food when satisfied, The rest are lipwise, not supreme.
141. Who thinks of first five doctrines well, According to the sixth who acts, Attains the fifth, great seers tell, No doubts remain in these true facts.
142. I often bow to him who lives, Though in body, above it, The seer's word always survives. The North-pole-star resemebles it.
Long live this Gospel and the lineage. Of seers from True Teacher Raja. A boon this is for Real Knowledge. Initiated by Sri Laghuraja.
Om Shanti Shanti Shanti, Dedication to the feet of the Holy True Teacher.
