Atma Vidya Vialasa - 3
« on: April 21, 2009, 12:16:26 PM »
Sri Sadasiva Brahmendra continues....

*

The Sage shines supreme, silent and placid, with the ground under
the tree as his resting place and with his palm as the begging bowl,
wearing nothing but (only) the jewel of non attachment.

*

The great recluse who has awakened to the state of the perfect
Existence-Knowledge-Bliss rests in his house, which is the
deserted bush on the river bank, on the rare and very comfortable
beld of soft sands.

*

The king of asectics takes his seat on a broad slab of stone which
is lovely because on every side of it the pure waters of the river
are flowing, while the southern breeze from the Malaya Hills blows
gently.

*

Verily the silent sage, ever engaged in inward meditation takes
the alms placed in his hands as food and wanders along the street
like an idiot.

*

Having dissolved the entire world by right knowledge and being
under the powers of the Perfect Substance that survives such
dissolution, he puts into his mouth by force of prarabdha karma
(past action which have begun to bear fruit in the current birth)
the handful of food which comes to him.

*

The great Sannyasin who knows the truth of all the Vedas wanders
like an ignorant fool, unnoticed, devoid of every sense of difference,
and seeing only perfection everywhere and in all creatures.

*

The man who knows the Self accepts as a rosary, the rows of blue
lily flowers in lonely places, and as a divine hearling herb (Kalpavalli), the absence of carnal desire, and as magic pills of immortality, the
absence of egoism.       

*

The sage rejects nothing considering it bad.  Nor does he accept
anything, considering it good.  Knowingthat everything is the
result of avidya, ignorance, he remains unattached to anything.
