Sri Sankara Vijayam - 102
« on: October 20, 2009, 12:08:25 PM »
Dasa Sloki of Sri Sankara, his last will and testament continues....

Verse 6:

Colours like white, black, red or yellow, structural appellations
like shortness, fatness, or height cannot be associated with Me.
I am in reality the One Atman without a second -- the attributeless Truth, indescructible even when the whole universe
is dissolved, and of the nature of supreme bliss and purity.
I have realized my Atmanhood which is without a form and is
of the nature of supreme Effulgence.

(Muruganar has got a verse, where he says that even though
the peacock's egg is white, it gives rise to a bird with a thousand
hues.  The colourless egg, gives rise to all colours and structural
appellations in living beings.)

Verse 7:

The Scripture, the teacher of scriptures,  the mode of teaching,
and the taught are not applicable to Me.  Nor may the worldy
usage of words like 'I', 'You', or 'It' be predicated to Me who am
in reality the One Atman without a second -- the attributeless
Truth, indestructible even when the whole creaion is dissolved,
and of the nature of supreme bliss and purity.  I have realized
My Atmanhood which is of the nature of supreme knowledge bereft
of all superimpositions.

(All superimpositions are false.  This is what Hastamalaka, told
Sri Sankara, when this young boy met Sri Sankara first at Sriveli
village, in the West Coast.  Bhagavan Ramana has translated in
Tamil verse this Hastamalakam.)

Arunachala Siva.
