न एव चिंत्यं न च अचिन्त्यं अचित्तं चित्तं एव तत् ।
पक्षपात विनिर्मुक्तं आत्मानं पर्युपासयेत् ॥ (37)


The Self is not something that can be thought of, nor is it something that cannot be thought of, It is not thought itself, -
What does not lean towards any of the above, The supreme that is the Self, meditate upon it ever.

अचिन्त्यं चिन्तयेत् नित्यं कृत्वा चित्तं निराश्रयम् ।
निस्तत्वे निष्कली भूते विन्दति  आत्मनि यत् सुखम् ॥ (38)

Meditate ever on that Which is beyond the reach of the mind Allowing no refuge for the mind.
The joy that is attained in abundance in that Self, That is beyond all verities and complete.

निर्विकल्पं अचिन्त्यं च हेतु दृष्टान्त वर्जितम् ।
तत् सुखं परमं प्रोक्तं आत्यन्तिकं अनौपमम् ॥ (39)

Without any differences, and beyond the reach of thinking, Without any precedent , Without anything similar, That which is the utmost frontier and extolled as the Supreme Bliss, Be immersed in It.

Salutations to Sri Ramana

O Divine, lead me to dizzy heights of sublimity & loftiness

Dear I,

आत्मसाक्षात्कारप्रकरणम् - Atma Sakshatkara Prakaranam appears in सर्वज्ञानोत्तरा - Sarava Jnanottara, an ancient text from the Sanskrit Saiva Agamas. Here, spiritual instruction is imparted to Guha or Subrahmanya by Iswara - Siva himself.

Bhagavan rendered this prakaranam into Tamil verses some years after his similar versification of देविकाळोत्तरा - Devikalottara absolutely spontaneously without even referring the original sanskrit version during his Virupaksha days.

The Ashramam publication is available with Bhagavan's original own handwriting.

Salutations to Sri Ramana

Atma Sakhshat Prakaranam and Devi Kaalottaram are two lesser known
or read works of Bhagavan.  He translated them in Tamil verses from
Sanskrit agamas.  Both are chanted in the Evening Parayana songs, once
in a week.

Arunachala Siva.
