59. I am Brahman. Verily I am Brahman.  I am indeed Brahman.  I am awareness.  One with such
certitude is called a Jivanmukta.

60. I am verily Brahman.  I am consciousness indeed.  I am the supreme alone. There is no doubt
about this.  I am myself the light of myself.  Such a one is called a Jivanmukta.

61. One who sees oneself only, one who abides in oneself alone, one who realizes that one manifests
from oneself is called a Jivanmukta.

62. One who enjoys the bliss of oneself, one who revels in the kingdom of oneself, is called a Jivanmukta.

63.  One who is oneself, one who is one pointed, one who is the Lord of oneself, one who sees one's
own form is called a Jivanmukta.

64.  This chapter on Jivanmukta is hard to find in all Vedas.  One who hears  this even once becomes
Brahman oneself.

65.  O Lord!  Those whose intellects are confused with ideas of distinctions generated by the diverse
arguments and theories of the Vedas, emaciate themselves by inflicting great pains of miserable
experiences but can never attain the bliss that arises from Thy feet.

66. Who is able to cross the ocean of transmigratory existence with its succession of birth and death
like the unending waves!  One who is well endowed with the spirit of meditation resulting from the ordained
methods of worship of Isvara alone, can, by means of the boat called undifferentiated knowledge.

Thus concludes the a dialogue between Ribhu and Nidagha, entitled 'Topic of the liberated while alive',
in the sixth amsa called Sankara of Sri Siva Rahasyam.

with an abiding form and of supreme silence alone is Videha Mukta.

Self.  Such a one is verily the Videha Mukta.   

5.  The immaculate Self, my own Self am I.  The Self of all myself alone.  The unborn Self and verily
the immortal Self alone is verily the Videha Mukta.
