of bliss and perfect.  Besides the Self there is nothing.

24.  The Self is the past.  Again the Self is of the future.  The Self is the imperishable.  The Self is the form
of consciousness.  The Self is the form devoid of beginning and middle.  Besides the Self there is nothing.

The Self is natural.  Besides the Self there is nothing.

27. The Self that is the fourth state is also the eternal Self.  Whatever trifling is here, it is the Self.
The Self is the measure.  The Self is without measure.  Besides the Self there is nothing.

28.  The Self of the many is the limit of words.  Rejoicing within, it is the joy of speech.  The Self is
without all.  The Self is all.  There is nothing besides the Self.

29.  See the Self alone.  Meditate within yourself.  Enjoy yourself within yourself.  Verily, there is nothing
besides the Self. 

30.  Be happy within yourself.  You yourself are the Self.  Look at the Self yourself, listen to the Self
yourself.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

60.  Everything is verily of the nature of the Self - the visible and the invisible, the moving and the non moving.  Hearing that all is the Self, man attains liberation.

61. Bhagavan Siva,  who is the consort of Uma Parvati, is the immutable Lord. He alone His own power
of Maya is the true cause behind the waking world of wondrous beings and the succession of phenomena.

Thus concludes the chapter 13 a dialogue between Ribhu and Nidagha entitled  All is the Self.
in Siva Rahasyam.

Arunachala Siva.

Chapter 14:


1.  Ribhu:  Hearken!  All is Brahman alone.  This is the truth, verily the truth in the name of
Siva.  In the certitude of the Self, O chief of the Yogis, there  is no other even in the least.

2.  The unreality is infinitesimal.  All this is infinitesimal for sure.  The body too is infinitesimal
for sure.  The body too is infinitesimal.  There is no other even the least. 

3. All is only the Self, the pure Self.  All is consciousness alone without a second; the eternal,
pure taint-less Self.  There is no other even in the least. 

4. If  the Self is thought of as infinitesimal, all is not even an atom.  Absence of thought is only an atom.
There is no other even in the least.

5.  Thought is only consciousness.  Consciousness is the paramount state.  Bliss is the supreme
measure.  This, which is visible is nothing at all.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

21.  I alone am the Vedanta,  the pinnacle of knowledge.  I alone am the consciousness supreme.

nothing else in the least.  I am devoid of anything exterior.

23.  I am nothing at all.  I am the Self that is Brahman.  I am not anything else.  I am the supreme.
I am eternal, pure and free ever contented and stainless.

This visible thing is nothing at all.

27.  All that is seen is the supreme Brahman.  That which is seen is ever non existent.  Brahman
alone is all thought.  Nothing whatsoever but Brahman is the supreme.  Bliss is the supreme
measure.  This, which is visible, is nothing at all.

28. Brahman is indeed Brahman, of the form of awareness.  This world is full of consciousness,
consciousness alone.  The whole world is unreal.  The phenomenal world is all unreal.

29.'I alone am' is indeed unreal. 'You are alone'  is indeed unreal. The modes of mind are unreal.
Attributes and their absence are unreal indeed.

30.  The whole of earth is indeed is unreal. Water is always unreal indeed.  Indeed the world and sky
are unreal.  Light is ever unreal indeed.

56.  There is no happiness apart from the Self.  There is not a whit apart from the Self.  There is
no refuge other than the Self. Remain in the Self always.

57. There is nothing anywhere apart from the Self.  Not blade of grass is apart from the Self.
There is no even an iota other than the Self.  Nowhere there is anything apart from the Self.

58.  This exposition of the Bliss of the Self is explained to you by me.  The wise one who hears
this, oneself becomes Brahman.

59. Hearing this alone is capable of imparting instantaneous emancipation.  By grasping the meaning
of the text, one is freed from all limitations.

60.  Suta:  Worship with a disciplined heart the great Lord Mahasa who is the perfect, the true and the one
devoid of interstices.  Such a one becomes here in this world eternal, without agitation, of the form
of Brahman and the Self established.  The knot of the heart cut asunder, he shines within and rests
inwardly.  As the world becomes dead to him, he becomes one with the auspicious and  blemishless
feet   of Isvara.

The chapter fourteen, a dialogue between Ribhu and Nidagha entitled, 'The description of the topic
called the Bliss of the Self'  in the sixth amsa called Sankara in Sri Siva Rahasyam.
