अभावः भावं आश्रित्य भावं कुर्यात् निराश्रयम् ।
आत्मसंस्थं मनः कृत्वा न किंचित् अपि चिन्तयेत्॥ ॥ (36)


The Self is without thought, make it impossible for the thought-oriented (mind) to think at all.
Cause the mind that thinks to get settled on the Self,
Let not the mind think of anything else.

The Self is ever thoughtless.  The question Who am ? cleanses all
other thoughts, and finally dies without further question.  It is like
the stick that stirs the funeral pyre and ultimately burns itself.

Arunachala Siva.

कपाल्युवाच​
विषयी विषयो वृत्तिरितीदं भगवंस्रिकम् ।
ज्ञानिनां पामराणां च लोकयात्रासु दृश्यते ॥


Oh Bhagavan, in the every-day life of both the jnani and the ignorant, one observes the triad, subject, object and cognition

अथ केन विशेषेण ज्ञानी पामरतोऽधिकः ।
इमं मे नाथ सन्देहं निवर्तयितुमर्हसि ॥

By what special attribute then, is a jnani superior to the ignorant, one? Oh Lord, may you be pleased to clear this doubt of mine.

भगवानुवाच​
अभिन्नो विषयि यस्य स्वरूपान्मनुजर्षभ ।
व्यापारविषयौ भातस्तस्याभिन्नौ स्वरूपतः ॥

For one to whom the subject is not different from the Self, the object and the cognition also do not appear different from the Self

विभिन्नो विषयी यस्य स्वरूपदभिमानिनः ।
व्यापारविषयौ भातस्तस्य भिन्नौ स्वरूपतः ॥

For one to whom, owing to attachment, the subject is different from the Self, the object and the cognition too appear different from the Self.

भेदाभासे विजानाति ज्ञान्यभेदं तु तात्त्विकम् ।
भेदाभासवशं जत्वा पामरस्तु विभिद्यते ॥

Even in this seeming difference, the jnani perceives the essential unity. The ignorant one, caught in the seeming difference considers himself separate.

I am thinking whether it is a dialogue between Kapali Sastri & others on one side and Ramana on the other side  penned by ' Kavyakantha ' ?
O Divine, lead me to dizzy heights of sublimity & loftiness
