38.  The Self alone is the Self eternal.  The Self alone illuminates the qualities.  The Self alone is of the form
of the fourth state.  The Self is all transcending and beyond that.

39.  The Self alone is the eternal and perfect Self.  I am the Self alone - there is no doubt.  You and I are
the Self, indeed the Self.  All is only the Self.

40.  I am eternal. I am the eternally perfect.  I am eternal, ever and anon.  I am the Self alone; the world
is not different; the immortal and ancient Self.

41.  I am the ancient. I am the Purusha (God) and the Lord.  I am beyond the beyond.  I am Parameswara.
I am the bestower of worldly existence.  I am the destroyer of worldly existence.  I am the granter of
happiness and the form of non dual happiness.

42.  I am Bliss. I am endless. I am immortal - there is no doubt of this.  I am birth-less. I am of the form
of the Self.  There is naught else that is lovable. 

43.  I am Brahman alone.  This is Brahman.  All is the undiminshing Brahman always.  There is never the word 'all'.  'All' is always naught.

44. I am attributeless. I am support-less.  I am ever non existent.  There is no cause for calamity at all.
There is not a trifling of delusive affects.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

45.  There is never any potency of ignorance.  I am Brahman - there is no doubt of this.  All is Brahman,
the space of consciousness.  That alone am I - there is no doubt.

46.  That alone am I. And, I am myself.  The Beyond also am 'I', the supreme Lord.  I am the possessor
of knowledge (or, Vidyadhara, a class of celestial beings).  There is nothing like knowledge and ignorance.

47. I am consciousness; I am the consciousness ever.  I am the fourth state; cause of the fourth state;
the supreme. All is Brahman only, only Brahman. All is Brahman, I am, - always.

48.  There is not a trifle other than me. And there is no Brahman anywhere outside me. Apart from me,
there is nothing supreme.  Apart from me there is no any state of consciousness.

49.  There is no state of reality apart from me. For me there is no state of consciousness outside me.
There is no dwelling other than me.  Apart from me there is no Brahman even.

50.  There is no cause apart from me. Apart from me there is not even an atom.  Apart from me there is
no serenity.  Apart from me there is no purity.

51.  Apart from me there is no sanctity.  Apart from me there is no word as 'that'.  Neither there is
righteousness apart from me nor there is everything.

52.  Anything apart from me here is only unreal.  Anything outside me is only illusory. Anything and
everything that shines other than me are like horns of hare.

Arunachala Siva.

53.  If anything shines apart from me, it is due to illusion.  Anything apart from me is like magic.  There is
no doubt apart from me, nor there is 'cause and effect'  apart from me.

54.  All this is just Brahman; I am He - this is the meditation.  All this is spoken by the Lord. Such alone
must be the certitude.

55.  Why repeat this so much.  O Yogi?  Have this certitude ever. The rare one who attains this conviction
becomes Brahman oneself.

56.  This world of forests and hills is not apart from Sankara.  This world of demons is verily that Lord of gods.
It is revealed to the subtle intellect that the body, mind and movements, the sheaths and the one who
shines amidst there is but He, the supreme Siva.

57.  The eyes, the ears, the mind and the vital airs manifest from the expanse of the heart within.  Inspired
by the latent tendencies they course through and in the end merge therein alone.  Then the mind becomes
illumined as the Heart that is inaccessible to the senses, the speech and the mind.  Such nectar of Brahman
alone is referred to as the consort of mountains born Girija (Siva).

Thus concludes the chapter 18, a dialogue between Ribhu and Nidagha entitled 'The dialogue between
Ribhu and Nidagha in the 6th amsa called Sankara in Sri Siva Rahasyam.

Chapter  19:


!. Ribhu:  I shall expound the bliss of Brahman, which is rarely found in the three worlds.  By hearing
of that, one can achieve perpetual freedom.

2.  I am only the Self that is supreme bliss, ever just bliss alone.  I am of the nature of absolute bliss.
The world is fully Consciousness-Bliss.

3.  I am ever endless, unending.  This world is Knowledge Bliss.  I am of the nature of enlightened bliss.
This mind is eternal bliss.

4. I am singular bliss alone.  I am the knower of unitariness.  Cultivate this attitude for the sure subsidence
of the world. 

5. I am ever the truth, the light of transcendence, ever the qualities such as Truth etc., ever the Self devoid
of truth etc; ever the light, the adorable.

6.  The Self as the illusory world is naught.  The illusory mind stuff is naught.  The Self with the appellation
of illusion is naught.  The rogue of a mind is naught.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

7.  The very foolish in the world are non existent.  The most foolish people there are none.  I alone am
the supreme Brahman.  I alone am verily Myself, ever.

8.  'Here' and 'beyond' are non existent.  Just I alone am.  I am Brahman, the pure.  All is indeed
Brahman only.

9.  The whole world is ever non existent.  Thought alone is the world in full.  Thought alone is said to be
the world. Thought alone is the cause of the body.

10.  Thought alone is the great folly. Thought alone is the small  boy.  Thought alone is this great
soul.  Thought alone is the great unreality.

11. Thought alone is the illusory Self always.  Thought is like the hare's horn.  'Thought is naught' -
is ever true.  Thought is like the son of a barren woman.

12.  Thought is void - there is no doubt of this.  Brahman alone is the whole world.  Verily, I alone
am consciousness.  I am attribute-less indeed.

13. Mind alone is the transmigratory existence.  Mind alone is the circle. Mind alone is the bondage.
Mind alone is sin.

14.  Mind alone is great sorrow.  Mind alone is the cause of body.  Mind alone is said to be the world.
Mind alone is the body.

Hari.  Mind alone is known as Siva.

16. Mind alone is said to be magic.  Only mind is will.  Mind alone is great sin.  Mind alone is the evil one.   

17.  Mind alone is said to be the all.  Mind alone is the great fear.  Mind alone is the supreme Brahman.
Mind alone is the unitariness.

18. Mind alone is the form of consciousness.  Mind alone is the cause of the mind.  Consciousness alone
is the supreme form.  Consciousness alone is the supreme state.

19.  I am verily the supreme Brahman right now.  I alone am the supreme Brahman.  I alone am the satisfied
Self.  I am the embodiment of bliss.

20.  I am the Self with fully grown intellect, ever un-moving and blemish-less. I alone am the peaceful
Self.  I am devoid of beginning and end.

21.  I alone am the resplendent Self.  I am indeed Brahman alone.  I am eternal - there is no doubt of this.
I am always adorable to the intellect.

22.  I alone am. I alone am; the One. I alone am all, the immortal. I alone am the self agreement.
I alone cause acceptability.

I have no thought.  I have no body, I have no sense.

I have no repetition or the sacred syllables. I have no world nor do I have a friend.

26. I have no relation.  I have no enemy.  I have no mother nor do I have a father.  I have nothing to
be enjoyed nor there is an enjoyer for me. I have no occupation.  I have no caste.

29.  By being Brahman alone I am just myself only. I have no attachment or greed.  I have no hymn or
recollection.

30.  I have no delusion.  I have no craving.  I have no friendship. I have no quality.  I have no sheath.
I have no childhood.  I have no youth or dotage.

31. Everything being the one form of Brahman, it is certain that oneness is Brahman.  There is nothing
beyond Brahman.  There is not a whit other than Brahman.

32. Other than Brahman 'this' is non existent.  Other than Brahman this is naught.  Apart from the Self
there is never anything.  I am Self alone.  There is no doubt about this.

33.  Other than the Self there is no happiness.  Other than the Self I am not.  I am bereft of anything to be
grasped or any one to grasp.  I am devoid of renunciation or anything to renounce.

34.  I have nothing to renounce nor is there anything to acquire.  I have neither bondage nor liberator.
I have nothing to see.  I have nothing inferior.  I have nothing that is the superior, nor there is slander.

35. I have no strength.  I have no caste such as the brahmin or chandala, outcaste.  I have nothing  to
drink nor do I have shortness.  I have no deterioration nor do I have poltency.

36.  I have no power. I have no food.  I have no divinity.  I have no separateness.  Being only Brahman
alone and the eternal alone, there is nothing whatsoever apart from me.

37. I have no path, nor do I have any illusion.  I have no truth, nor body anywhere.  There is no 'I'.
Why, even the name Brahman there is none.

38.  Whatever worlds there are, whatever wise words of the Guru there be, all that is Brahman, I am
indeed.  All that is regarded as awareness.

39.  Brahman  is awareness, full of awareness; existence, full of existence always. One alone is Brahman
oneself. One alone is the supreme oneself.

40.  One alone is liberation oneself.  Oneself is the intersticeless. Oneself is knowledge.  Oneself is
non existentialism.

41.  Oneself is ever the essence. One alone is beyond oneself.  Oneself is the void self.  Oneself is the
plunderer of mind.

42. Abidance in silence alone is holy bath.  Abidance in silence alone is repetition of Mantra.  Abidance
in silence alone is ceremonial worship.  Abidance in silence alone is supreme.

Arunachala Siva.

43.  Inquire into the mind ever and be of the certitude 'I am Brahman'.  I am Brahman - there is no
doubt about this.  Such a silent abidance is Japa (repetition of Mantra.)

44.  All is Brahman, nothing else exists.  All is full of knowledge - this is penance.  There is nothing as
'oneself alone'.  Of the form of the all-transcending am I.

45.  I transcend speech. Repetition of words aloud is futile.  This is the highest significance of the mind.
Such distinctions are not for me.

46.  All the beings are corpses.  Everything put together is a corpse.  The world is unreal.  The universe
is all unreal.

47.  The existence of a thing apart is not true.  Speech being unreal has no existence. Existence is of the form
of the unreal.  Brahman alone is ever by itself.

48.  The Vedas and their limbs are unreal.  The conclusions of the scriptures are unreal.  This listening
is verily unreal.  Contemplation on that is unreal.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

49.  One-pointedness of meditation too is unreal. Classification into a group of like traits is unreal.
Classes of different traits is said to be unreal.  This is the truth, the truth.  There is no doubt of this.
All is Brahman, ever Brahman, the one Brahman, the undiminishing consciousness.

50.  This universe is verily the product of the sport of consciousness. It blossoms in fullness by the grace
of the Overlord of the universe, not by another means.  Liberation results by following the sacred words
of the crest of the Vedas -- the Upanishads and by acting according to the mandates outlined in the
scriptures.

The chapter 19 concludes, a dialogue between Ribhu and Nidagha, entitled 'The topic of Brahman bliss'
in the sixth amsa of Sri Siva Rahastyam.

Arunachala Siva.

Chapter 20:


1.  Listen to this one and the only, intensive, secretive and the supremely wondrous,
most mysterious and the ever and instantly liberation conferring.

2.  Easy is the knowledge of Brahman, easy, auspicious and the best.  It is easy for those travelling in Brahman; it is easy and bestows total knowledge of everything.

3.  It is easy for those accomplished ones who have fulfilled their duties, easy for those abiding in themselves.  It is easy and causeless, easy for those abiding in Brahman.

4. It is easy for those who bereft of thought, for those who are 'That' themselves by virtue of themselves, for those who are devoid of the transmigratory cycle. Thought
is said to be the recurrent cycle of life.

5. This world is not created.  It is only Brahman.  It is not the mind.  It is indeed
Brahman. There is no fear. It is Brahman alone, nothing else.

6.  All is unreal is indeed Brahman. Their support is Brahman alone.  These bodies
are only Brahman.  This is Brahman alone.  There is not a blade of grass apart.

7. Brahman alone am I, not anything else. This is Brahman, not the world.  This is Brahman, not space.  This is Brahman, not activities.

Arunachala Siva.
