Verse 111:

Should you succeed even for a split second in reaching the state of absorption in the Self, (nishta),
which is as the pure state (Chuttam), in which the discriminating consciousness has fallen away,
is free of all limitation, ah! I am at a loss to describe it!  Is the bliss that rises up then a thing of little
account?   It would be as if one accessed  the vast ocean of milk through the tiny hole in a tear!  (111)

Chuttam is the pure state is the state of Jagrat Sushupti  - waking sleep, a state which is neither waking
but one of total freedom which transcends both of these states. See the notes to Verse 106.

The bliss of the Self is compared to the ocean of milk, churned by the gods and asuras, to obtain divine
ambrosia;   the experience of the infinite bliss of the Self whilst still in the body upon the loss of the
discriminating consciousness is compared to gaining access to the Puranic ocean of milk through the
tiny hole of a teat.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

45.11:


தந்தைஇரு தாள்துணித்துத் தம்பிரான் தாள்சேர்ந்த
எந்தைஇரு தாளிணைக்கே இன்புறுவ தெந்நாளோ. 11.


When is the day to be
That I delight
At the twin feet of my father *[1]
Who reached the Feet of the Heavenly Father
Severing the twin feet of his father?

FootNotes:

[1] The reference is to St. Chandeswara, whose daring act is recounted in Puranas. This Brahmin
boy was milking the village cows he was asked to tend, and pouring the milk on a Linga made of
sand as oblation.   The boy's father, on hearing the report from the villagers that his son was misusing
the milk of cows, destroyed the Linga with his feet. The son, so intensely devoted to Siva, was beside
himself in wrath and cut off the feet of the father who committed the ungodly act. Thereupon Siva
appeared, rewarding the son and redeeming the father. Chandeswara occupies a place close to Siva,
on the left, in all temples and receives worship after Siva.

Arunachala Siva.
