61.  'That which is, is Brahman, all this too' so say  the Vedas.  He who knows this, and all the
real and the unreal, so also the utterances of the Vedas  -  all arise from Brahman and are verily
Brahman, alone knows.  Knowing that this world which falls out due to delusion, is Brahman,
the form of knowledge, he becomes verily Brahman.

Thus ends chapter 15, a dialogue between Ribhu and Nidagha, entitled 'Description of the topic of
Brahman is all'.  in  the sixth amsa called Sankara of Sri Siva Rahasyam.

Chapter 16:

1. Ribhu: I shall tell you that which is the hardest to find in the Vedas, the Sastras, the Agamas etc.,
Hearken carefully. All ;is just unreal indeed.

2.  Whatever little appears in the world, whatever little is spoken always, whatever little is experienced
wherever - all this is only unreal.

3.  Whatever little repetition there be, bath or holy water, whatever that is apart from the Self is all
unreal.  There is no doubt of this.

4.  Action of the mind, action of the intellect and action of the illusory potency too - what little there
be apart from the Self is all only unreal. 


5.  A form other than egoism, be it 'this', 'you'  or 'this is the truth', and whatever trace there is
apart from the Self is all only unreal.

6.  Appearance is verily diversity.  Transactions, from wherever they be, are of the Self everywhere --
all these are only unreal.

7.  Differences relating to knowledge, differences of the world -- all of these are only unreal.

8.  Differences of duality, differences of appearances, and differences of the wakefulness are
entirely of the mind.  Differences relating to 'I' and differences of 'this' are simply unreal.   

9.  Differences of the dream state, differences regarding deep sleep, differences of the fourth state,
without differences;  differences of doership, differences of action, differences of qualities,
the embodiment of essence, differences of sex, differences relating to 'this' - are   only unreal.

10. Differences of the Self, differences of the unreal, differences of the real - even a trace there of
is unreal.  Differences of the utterly unreal or real -  are only unreal.

11. Differences of the 'present', differences of the 'absent', non differences - are delusions of
difference. Differences owing to delusion, differences due to existence are only unreal.
