37. The jnani's (sage's) state, being one which transcends the mind, cannot be described with the help merely of the mind; all descriptions therefore must be defective.

38. There is no other way except to pull up the mind each time it wants to go astray and fix it on the Self.

39.  Time and place really do not exist.  Even in radio, we have a hint of this truth.  We have even Hyderabad (a distant city) here.

40.  The jnani's (sage's) ego has been killed, and he does not indulge in any activities of his own accord, or with the notion that he is the doer.  So, he is in sleep.  At the same time, he is not unconscious as in sleep, but fully awake in the Self.

 41.  We bother about the past and the future, not realizing the truth of the present.

42.  Devotee: When we enquire within 'Who am I?' What is that?
 
Sri Bhagavan:  It is the ego.  It is only that (ego) which makes the vichara also.  The Self has no vichara (question or doubt).

43.  The Jnani (sage) is the Self, and sees nothing apart from himself.

44.  There is no harm in engaging in whatever activities naturally come to one.  The hindrance or bondage is in imagining that we are the doers (of those activities), and attaching ourselves to the fruits of such activities.

45.  The jnani (sage) sees he is the Self, and it is on that Self as the screen that the various cinema-pictures of what is called the world pass.  He remains unaffected by the shadows, which play on the surface of that screen.

46.  See with the physical eye and you see the world.  See with the eye of realization (and) everything appears as the Self.

47.  Our intellect (or buddhi) is of no use to realize the Self.  To see the world, or external objects, the mind and the reflected light (or chidabhasa) that always arises with it, are necessary.  To see the Self, the mind has simply to be turned inside and there is no need of the reflected light.

48.  If we concentrate on any thought and go to sleep in that state, immediately on waking the same thought will (generally) continue in our mind.

49.  We are all in reality Sat-chit-ananda (existence-consciousness-bliss).  However, we imagine we are bound and are having all these pains.

50.  One performs all sorts of penances to become what one already is (our natural state).  All effort is simply to get rid of this viparita buddhi (mistaken impression) that one is limited and bound by the woes of samsara (this world of time and space).

51.  The spark of jnana (enlightenment) will easily consume all creation as if it were a mountain-heap of cotton.  All the crores (crore = ten million) of worlds being built upon the weak (or nonexistent) foundation of the ego, they all topple down when the atomic bomb of jnana comes down upon them.
