Panchadasi - (98)
« on: August 25, 2008, 11:19:32 AM »
The Chapter VIII continues:-

Verse 66:-  All the classics of Vedanta proclaim the reality of
Kutastha, and they do not admit the existence of any entity
other than It.

Verse 67:-  These verses show the real meaning of the Sruti,
and do not consider the matter from a logical point of view.
The doubts of the logicians are not considered here.

Verse 68:-  The aspirant for release should give up sophistry,
and should base his conviction on the Sruti, which says that
Jiva and Isvara are creations of Maya.

Verse 69:- Isvara's creation extends from His willing to create
the world to His entrance into His creation.  Jiva's creation
includes everything from the world of the waking state to his
release from ignorance.

Verse 70:-  Kutastha is ever assocationless, it does not change.
Thus one should always meditate and reflect.

Verse 71:-  "(For Kutastha) there is no death and no birth,
none in bondage and none engaged in working out release
(Sadhaka), no aspirant for release, (Mumukshu) and none
liberated (Mukta).  That is the Supreme Truth.

(See Brahma or Amrtabindu Up. 10)
