63.   The supreme meditation is only consciousness.  The supreme adoration is only consciousness.
You are only consciousness.  I am just awareness.  All is just consciousness only. 

64.  This chapter, called 'You are consciousness alone' is hard to to find in sacred lore.  The rare one who
hears this surely becomes Brahman oneself. 

65.  By the practice of yogic meditation, one, whose existence is controlled by the seemingly eternal cycle
of birth and death, gains freedom from the infatuation of Maya.  The knots born of fear of heart are sundered,
his desires are fulfilled by His vision that transforms the world to transcendence and he becomes eternal and
immutable in the world.  He verily becomes Brahman within himself.

Chapter 16, a dialogue between Ribhu and Nidagha entitled 'You are consciousness alone' in the sixth
amsa called Sankara of Sri Siva Rahasyam, is concluded.

Arunachala Siva.

36.  I alone am my reality, verily.  Besides me there is nothing at all.  The state of 'that' is not apart from me.
The state of 'Thou' is not apart from me.

37.  There is never anything as merit.  'Sin', there is none of it.  Nor there are differences such as 'this thing',
differences as 'this person' or differences of real and unreal.

38.  There is nothing that is yours, truly, truly, truly - again and again.  Everything is naught, ever -
nothing, nothing at all.

39.  This alone is supreme Brahman.  I alone am Brahman which is you alone.  Time is Brahman.  A fraction
is Brahman.  Action is Brahman and so is a moment.

40.  All is Brahman indeed.  I am Brahman.  There is no doubt that I am Brahman.  Thought is Brahman.
Mind is Brahman.  Truth is Brahman - that I ever am.

41.  Attribute-less Brahman, eternal, pause-less, and the supreme am I.  I am only Brahman from
beginning to end.  There is not a whit of beginning or end.

42.  There is not even a statement such as 'I am', remembrance or utterance.  All is Brahman alone--
there is no doubt of this.  There is not a trace of 'you' ever.

43. There is none who can expound this -- there is no doubt.  This explanation is so hard to find.  This is
capable of bestowing instant liberation.  It confers immediate liberation.

Arunachala Siva.

44.  Surely one will instantly attain the Brahman-state.  The rare one, just by listening to this, will
attain instant emancipation.

45.  This is rare to obtain in this world, rare indeed in all the three three worlds.  'I am Brahman -
there is no doubt' - thus alone one must contemplate strongly.  Then renouncing everything, one
must happily abide in quiescence. 

46.  Taking recourse to the yoga of meditation supported by its limbs just as Yama (moral restraint)
and niyama (physical restraints);  realizing the illusive nexus between the physical world and
the transcendental expanse of heart, smearing the body with sweet pleasure the holy ashes, having
renounced the craving for sensual delights and the fettering sheaths, their joyous hearts seeking the
Supreme, the votaries of Siva are transformed into Siva themselves.

Thus concluded chapter 17, a dialogue between Ribhu and Nidagha entitled 'Topic of the compendium
of all systems of philosophy' in the sixth amsa called Sankara of Sri Siva Rahastyam.

Arunachala Siva.

Chapter 18:

1. Ribhu:  Listen again to the supreme knowledge that confers liberation immediately.  All is Brahman
alone, always.  All is tranquility - there is no doubt.

2. All this is the imperishable Brahman of the form of the supreme.  This is verily void.  What is said
to be this and spoken as 'we' is wrong.

3.  Whatever little of reminiscing there be is non existent.  Whatever little of even meditation or whatever
little of the form of knowledge -  all that is Brahman only.

4.  Whatever few words are there about Brahman, whatever few words of the Vedas, whatever little said
by the Guru - all that is Brahman only.

5. Whatever little blemish there be in truth, whatever little sweet speech there be, whatever little reflection
there may exist - all that is Brahman only.

6.  Whatever little of regular listening, whatever little of meditation undertaken, whatever little of certitude
and earnestness there be -- all that is Brahman only.

7. Whatever little instruction of the Guru there is, what little thinking about the Guru there is, whatever
little diversity there be in the yoga practices - all that is Brahman only.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

8. Getting rid of all, leaving the Guru, forsaking everything, ever, established in Brahman in silence.
Bliss alone is.

9.  Ever rejoice by renouncing all.  The renunciation of all is great joy.  Renunciation of all is transcendental
bliss.  The renunciation of all is supreme happiness. 

10.  Renouncing all is renouncing the mind.  Renouncing all is renouncing the ego.  Renouncing all is great
oblation.  Total renunciation is supreme happiness.

11. Total renouncing is great liberation.  So is the sacrifice of the mind.  Mind alone is the world ever.  Mind
alone is transmigration.

12.  Mind alone is great delusion.  Mind alone is the generator of the body.  Mind alone is the bodily fear.
Mind alone is full of thought.

13.  Mind alone is what is called the world.  Mind alone is the blemish.  Mind alone is all insentience.
Mind alone is the senses etc.,

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

I am the distinctive.

20. I am the interior of the subtle body.  i alone am the ancient.  I alone am the measuring Self.

consciousness, the space of consciousness.  There is nothing in the least other than consciousness.

23. Everything is pervaded by the space of awareness. The space of consciousness is the illuminator.
The form of mind is Space of consciousness and is a solid mass of awareness.

29.  The Self alone is of the form of the world.  The Self alone is the three realms. The Self alone is the
most precious of the world.  The Self alone is the fullness of the mind.

30.  The Self alone is the liberation of worlds.  The Self alone is the Guru of oneself.  The Self shines variously.
