Verse 14 of Devi Kalottaram:

That state of Sunya (Void), the One without a second, devoid of all the perceived phenomena that appear
as the 'other', shines  with the effulgence of awareness with simply the aspect of 'I' or 'Aham' alone, and is
verily the way to Realization for it bestows union with that Transcendent Being. That, therefore, is the seed
of fructifying into Liberation.

(Tr. Smt. Kanakammal)

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 15 of Devi Kalottaram:

சக்கரங்கள் நாடிகள் சார் பதும தேவதை
அக்கரங்கள் மண்டல மூர்த்தியாதியா - மிக்க இவை
ஓர் போதும் அற்பமுமே உன்னி இடத்தகா
நேர் மார்க்கமாம் இதனை நீத்து.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 15 of Devi Kalottaram:

Discarding the direct way of seeking the light of Awareness, and abiding as the Self taught by this Kala Jnana,
contemplate never, and not even in the least, on the various chakras located in the celebrated Sahasrahaara,
the subtle nadis that create ten types of sounds, deities like Ganesa residing in the lotuses of varying number
of petals, in the centers of these chakras, and their respective mnatra aksharas and the different deities that
have expanded into many, right from the three mandalas of sun, moon and fire.

(Tr. Smt. Kanakammaal)

Verse 16 of Devi Kalottaram:


கும்பகமும் மந்திரக் கூட்டம் உயிர்ச் சலனத்
தம்பனம் முன் ஆயவாம் தாரணை தாம் - என்பவைகள்
அத்தனையும் ஆசரிக்க வேண்டாவாம் அட்சயமா
முக்தி இச்சை உள்ளோர் முயன்று.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 16 of Devi Kalottaram:

Seekers who aspire for everlasting release need not endeavor to practice hosts of mantras meant for
worship of diverse deities.  Practices of Yoga like pranayama and kumbhaka (retention of breath) that
bind the movement of life breath, dharana (concentration) and all else, (all of which) are but one great
fetter.

(Tr. Smt. Kanakammal)

Verse 17 of Devi Kalottaram:


பூஜை வணக்கம் புரி செய் ஜபம் சிந்தனம்
ஆசரிப்பது ஏதுமே அங்கில்லை - பேசுமது
கேவலம் ஞேயம் என்று கேள் இனிக் கிஞ்சில் அன்ய
மா அறிய வேண்டுவது இன்றாம்.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 18 of Devi Kalottaram:

Listen to Me carefully.  That Transcendent Being, hailed by the Vedas, is to be known only through Jnana.
Therefore, there is absolutely no need to know that Transcendent Being, as outside of oneself even a
little (Thou Art Thou). Hence worship of that Para Vastu with the mind in the form of puja of deities, singing
of hymns, paying obeisance, continuous chanting of holy panchaakshara or ashtaakshara or meditating on
deities by the mind -- none of these is there.

(Tr. Smt. Kanakammal)

Verse 18 of Devi Kalottaram:



வெளி விஷயம் பற்றும் விரி மனத்தார்க்கு என்றும்
விளையும் வெகு பந்த ஏது - வெளியே
திரியும் சித்தத்தைத் திருப்ப நிலை உற்றே
ஒரு துனி மேவார் உலகில் ஓர்.   

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 18 of Devi Kalottaram:


For those whose minds gaining restlessness, are for expanding, clinging to external objects, that are
the 'other' of oneself, factors causing fresh bondage,keep increasing in countless numbers.  If the
externalized and ever roaming mind is turned inwards and made to abide in its natural state know
that that one will not be afflicted in the world by any misery or agitation.

(Tr. Smt. Kanakammal)

Verse 19 of Devi Kalottaram:



உள் வெளி மேல் கீழ் நடு திக்கு ஓர் சிறிதும் இன்றியே
உள்ள உருவம் எல்லாமாய் ஓர் உருவும் இல்லாதாய்த்
தான் தனக்கே வேத்தியமாய்த் தானே இலங்கிடும்மால்
பூன்றமே ஒன்று புணர்.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 19 of Devi Kalottaram:


Unite with that Truth, the all pervading, immaculate, Perfect Whole, the non dual Atman, without an inside or outside
(within or without), bereft of all conception of directions such as up, below or center, which assumes all the forms
in creation, but which is itself without a form of its own, capable of being known only by itself,and self  luminous and
therefore, self revealing, requiring no other light to illuminate it.

(Tr. Smt, Kanakammal)

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 20 of Devi Kalottaram:



எவ் எதன் திட்டியால் எவ் உயிர் செய் தொழில்கள்
அவ் உயிர்க்கு அக் கதி உண்டாதலால் -எவ்வம்
அறா அவை சாராது அயல் திட்டி அற்று
நிராலோகம் தானே நினை.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 20 of Devi Kalottaram:

The Jivas of the world perform with a highly resolute mind such actions that would translate their aims a
reality and they do not do obtain their aims. Restraining from indulgence in such actions flawed with fruits,
turn the mind inward away from things other than that, the Self, contemplate on That which is beyond perception.

(Tr. Smt. Kanakammal)

Verse 21 of Devi Kalottaram:



ஏது பலம் கருமம் இல்லை சுபாவத்தில்
ஓதும் இவை யாவும் உண்மை அல - பேத
உலகமும் இல்லை உலகப் பற்று உள்ள
இலவுவிகன் தானும் இலை.

Arunachala Siva.

Verse 21 of Devi Kalottaram:

(The Truth being one) In the reality of the natural state there is neither cause nor actions nor their results.
All these spoken of as existing in the Veda Sastraas are not true.  Apart from Atman, as the 'other', there is
neither the perceived world fragmented by the diverse distinctions nor the worldling, the dweller in the world,
bound by the attachment of worldly desires.

(Tr.Smt. Kanakammal)

Arunachala Siva.
