Panchadasi - (10)
« on: August 19, 2008, 11:44:26 AM »
The Chapter VII continues...

THE SELF IS THE DEAREST TO ALL.

Verse 193:-  Many Srutis declare that a husband loves his wife
not for her sake, and the wife loves him not for his sake, but
both for their own sake.

Verse 194:- Now who is the doer and enjoyer?  Is it the immutable
Kutastha or the reflected consciousness, Chidabhasa, or a union
of the two?  Kutastha cannot be the enjoyer since it is association-
less.

Verse 200:-  Owing to ignorance, the Chidabhasa superimposes
the reality of Kutastha on to himself.  Consequenly he considers
his enjoyment to be real and does not want to give it up.  Thus,
Chidabhasa loves and enjoys, due to his union with Kutastha.

Verse 205:- As the fallen ones keep their minds ever concentrated
on objects of enjoyment, such as, garlands, sandal paste, young
women, clothes, gold and so forth, so an aspirant for liberation
ought to keep his attention fixed on the Self and never falter.

Verse 206:-  As a man desirous of establishing his superiority
over his opponents engages himself in the study of literature,
drama, logic and so forth, so an aspirant for liberation should
discriminate about the nature of the Self.

Verse 209:-  As these people through through perseverance
increase their efficiency in their fields, so for the aspirant
for liberartion through continuous practice of the idea of
separateness of the Self from the body becomes stronger.

 
Arunachala Siva.

Chidabhasa feels that he is self-consciousness and the body at the same time due to ignorance.

Dear DRPVSSN Raju,  It is called the heart-knot.  The Chit-jada
granthi.

Arunachala Siva.
