20.  I am myself the peacefulness of the individual.  I myself am the form of Isvara.
I am myself Brahman, the supreme Brahman.  I alone am, the inexhaustible.

21.  I am myself the ruination and the theory.  I am myself the Self, the illuminator.
I am myself the radiant form.  I am myself the extremely blemish-less.

22.  I am myself the eternal Self, indeed.  I am myself the pure, the desirable.  I am
myself the metrical form.  I am myself devoid of the body and such.

23.  I am myself the flawless Self.  I am myself seated as the space.  There are
no 'this' or 'this one'.  There are no differences such as 'this'. 

24. Brahman alone shines as the mind.  Brahman alone is always like Siva. Brahman
alone shines as the intellect. Brahman alone is always like Siva.

25.  Brahman alone shines like the moon.  Verily Brahman itself is the gross;
Brahman alone ever, not another.  Brahman alone is its Guru.

26. I am the light of the Self.  I am naught.  I am myself ever.  I am myself the
supreme Brahman.   I am myself the inexhaustible consciousness.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

27.  I am myself the Self Light shining everywhere.  I am myself Brahman, myself
the body, myself the wholesome, the transcendent person.

28.  I am myself Brahman, the import of 'That thou art'; myself the self shining illuminator.  I am myself the subsidence of individuality.  I am myself the nature of
Isvara.

29. I am myself the supreme Brahman.  I myself am the inexhaustible solitude.
I am the theory and thesis.  I am myself the illuminating Self.

30.  I am myself the resplendent form.  I am myself the completely blemish-less.
I am myself the eternal Self, indeed. I am myself the pure, the lovable and the
unlovable.

31.  I am myself the self abiding; myself divested of the body; myself the Self devoid
of faults; myself abiding as the space.

32.  I am undivided and the whole; filled with essence and un-partitioned.
I am, indeed, the indivisible bliss and the embodiment of the limitless.

33.  Being of this certitude, I am the perfect Self, Brahman alone am I, not
different.  I alone am the eternal Self indeed.  I am the permanent.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

Brahman indeed am I without reflection.  Brahman indeed am I, the affliction-less.

35.  Brahman indeed am I, the space of consciousness. Brahman indeed am I, the gap-less. Brahman indeed am I, the great joy.  Brahman indeed am I, Self, ever.

36.  Brahman indeed am I, the end-less Self.  Brahman indeed am I, the supremely
silent and divested of all stories.

naught.  Brahman indeed am I, the body I am not.   Brahman indeed am I, the
great non-dual.

38.  Brahman alone shines as the mind. Brahman alone is Siva, ever.  Brahman
alone shines as intellect. Brahman, indeed, is the fruit by itself.

39.  Brahman alone always shines as the form. That itself is Brahman; of this,
there can be no doubt.   Brahman alone shines as time.  Brahman alone takes
the form of everything.

40.  Brahman alone shines as the sentient.  Brahman alone shines by itself like
the insentient.  Brahman alone is everything as Om. Brahman alone is of the form
of Om.

It is the truth. There is no an iota apart from Brahman.

42.  Brahman indeed is all, verily the Self.  There is not a trace apart from Brahman.
Everything is unreal, the world is unreal.  Being appearance, it is like the pot and such.

43.  Brahman indeed am I; there is no doubt of this. Being consciousness I ever am.
Brahman indeed, being of the nature of the pure and the seer, is itself the greatest.

44.  I alone am the supreme Brahman.  I alone am the beyond the beyond.
I alone am the one beyond the mind.  I alone am the world transcending.

45. I alone am the eternal Self. I am of the illusory  nature. Bliss am I, without
support. Brahman alone is, nothing else.

46. I am Brahman, nothing else; naught else but the undiminishing awareness.
Anything other than the Self is despicable.  Other than Self, there is no 'I'.

47.  Other than the Self, I have no body.  The Self alone am I.  I have no impurities.
My mind is only established in the Self. I am only the Self.  It is not separate.

48.  I am the Self alone. I am the void.  The Self alone am I; nothing is mine.
The Self alone is; there are no qualities.  The Self alone is; there is nothing  separate.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

49.  You are totally non  existent.  All these are, likewise completely non existent.
All of this is totally non existent. Even an iota is absolutely non existent.

50.  The Self alone am I, the supreme Brahman.  All of the three worlds are illusory.
I am indeed the supreme Brahman.  I am indeed the supreme Guru.

51.  The idea of the individual is ever unreal.  The same notion of Siva is like wise.
The concept of Vishnu is illusory.  Everything is like the horns of hare.

52.  I am indeed ever perfect.  I am indeed intersticeless.  Ever-satisfied and formless, I am Brahman indeed.  There is no doubt of this.

53.  I am indeed the supreme bliss. I am indeed of a momentary existence.  I alone
am.  I am you only.  You and I indeed non existent, verily non existent.

54. I am indeed inaccessible to speech; not formulated by speech or mind.
I am indeed Brahman, the Self of all.  I am Brahman indeed, the blemish-less.

55.  I am indeed Brahman, consciousness alone.  I am indeed Brahman, the perpetual. 'This' is ever unreal.  I am indeed ever stable.

Arunachala Siva.

56.  This is joy.  I am Brahman.  This is joy.  I am insentient.  'This' is Brahman -
of this there is no doubt.  This is the truth, this is the truth - again and again.

57. The glory of the 'Self has been thus enunciated. It is rare to come by in all the worlds.  The rare one just by hearing this, becomes Brahman itself.

58.  Those who are burdened by worldly existence; whose support is in peace and
self restraint; who revel in the glory of moon adorned Lord of death ever shining
within, attains quiecence by the words of the Upanishads, the crown of the Vedas.

Thus the chapter twenty, a dialogue between Ribhu and Nidagha entitled 'The topic             the Glory of the Self' in the sixth amsa called Sankara of Sri Siva Rahstyam.

concluded.

Arunachala Siva.

Chapter 21:

1. Ribhu:  I shall tell you a great secret which is more confidential than the Vedas,
by listening of which one becomes Brahman oneself.

2.  I am just Being Consciousness- Bliss.  All is impregnated with Existence Awareness.  By the cognition of That only as Brahman, one becomes Brahman oneself.

3.  I am Brahman.  This is Brahman.  Plurality is Brahman.  There is no doubt about this.  Truth is Brahman, ever Brahman. I too am Brahman alone.

4.  The Guru is Brahman. Quality is Brahman.  All is the supreme Brahman, that
I am Brahman.  All is the supreme Brahman, that I am.

5. The supreme Brahman is to be cognized through the Vedas.  Brahman is especially
known through knowledge.  The Self is Brahman. I am Brahman. The beginning and the end is Brahman.  I am He.

6. Truth is Brahman, ever Brahman, nothing different;  ever the supreme.  I am Brahman.  I am non existent; not bound by egoism.

7. I am Brahma. This is non existent.  This Self is ever the great. Brahman-Self is to be realized though the Vedas. The trivial is like the horns of a hare.

Arunachala Siva.

8.  There is no past, no future.  Brahman stays constant.  I am consciousness.
The insentient is insignificant.  The destruction of the body is only consciousness.

9.  Wherever there be the mind even in the least, I, of the Self, annihilate the mind.
That which is truth, knowledge and infinity is not falsehood, insentience or painful.

10.  The Self is truth and infinite.  The Self is body only -- of this there is no doubt.
Whatever news is heard that is all unreal.  I alone am the light of the lights.

11.  Even the numeration one is unreal.  Brahman alone is real, ever I am.  Indeed
everything is unreal, being an emanation from the Supreme always.

12. Though devoid of all limbs, being eternal, I am the Supreme alone.  All that is
seen is naught for me in the least.  I say this because I am consciousness.

13.  I have no anger whatsoever.  I say this because I am consciousness.  There is
nothing whatsoever to be denoted as 'this' -- nothing at all.

14.  I am the attribute-less Brahman, being taught by the wise Guru.  Relative
knowledge is Brahman with attributes.  I am knowledge personified.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

15.  I am attribute-less.  I am part-less.  I am the existent.  I am the sustainer.
I am god.  I abound in material wealth.  I am pure.  I am devoid of anything.

16.  I am the essence.  I am devoid of essence.  I am the fourth state.  I am the
auspicious thought.  I am desire.  I am devoid of action.  I am the eternal and
pure form.

17.  I am devoid of the fruits of rituals. I am Brahman alone.  All this is supreme
Brahman.  This is the Self. There is no wonder in this.

18.  The nature of the Self is complete and incomplete; ever the embodiment of the
Self of all.  The nature of the Self is paramount Bliss without any limitations whatsoever.

19. 'I am the Self alone that is unitary and taint-less nature.'  contemplate thus associated with I-am-ness, combined with 'I am' feeling.             

20. See the Self of all as peace.  The idea of peace is an impurity of the mind.
Renouncing 'I am the body' thought, be of the conviction 'I am Brahman.'

21.  I am indeed Brahman, just Brahman and nothing in the least other than
Brahman. 'I am not this, I am not this, I am not this' - remember thus ever.

22.  "I am He. I am He. I am Brahman" -contemplate thus.  'Consciousness am I,
Consciousness am I, Brahman.  Consciousness am I, Consciousness am I' - proclaim
thus.       

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

23. Not this, not this, ever not this. Neither you, nor I' - meditate thus.   All is Brahman
- there is no doubt of this.  All knowledge is naught.

24.  Everything is a fabricated structure of your words and meanings.  The fear of
all the worlds is naught. All the holy waters are not true; neither are all the temples.

25.  All being consciousness, the name all never exists. 
Forsaking all forms of the certitude 'all is Brahman.'

26. Brahman is all and its reality.  The world and its phenomena do not exist.  Renounce the remebrance of the phenomenal and take hold of the recollection
of Brahman.

27.  Thereafter forsaking even that be established in your own state.  Renouncing
the stable state be the Self alone.

28. Renouncing even the renunciation, ever forsake the idea of differentiation.
Being enveloped by yourself, attain yourself by yourself.

30.  'All' is the thought.  There is no doubt of this. 'All' is naught.  There is no doubt
of this.  'All' is trifling.  There is no doubt of this. 'All' is illusion.  There is no doubt of
this.

29.  What the finger points out as 'this' is only lifeless being dead. This saying is to be
perceived through the sacred writings and utterances.

Arunachala Siva.

31.  You are Brahman, the 'I'.  There is no doubt of this.  This is Brahman indeed.
There is no doubt of this.  All is mind. There is no doubt of this.  All is Brahman.
There is no uncertainty in this.

32. As it shines apart from Brahman, it is illusion.  All is illusion from top to bottom.
There is neither body nor the five elements nor the mind, being only illusory.

33.  Not there is the existence of the intellect or the senses.  Nor there is liberation,
being just Brahman. There can be not a moment of uncertainty, because of which
thought is naught.

34.  Know that egoism is unreal; that being so conceit is naught. Nor there is
thought or remembrance and therefore no ageing.  There is no doubt of this.

35. If vital air is there, there is life.  The sense of smell being, smell, there is.
If there be eyes, there are beings. Ears being, hearing exists.

36.  If skin exists, there is the presence of touch. If tongue exists, there is the
ability to taste.  If there is individual, there is life.  If there are feet, there is walking.

37.  If there are hands, there is action.  If there is a creator, there is the possibility
of creation.  If there is something to be protected, there is the protector Vishnu.               
If there is something to be devoured, there is the devourer, Siva.

38.  All is Brahman. There is no doubt of this.  All is indeed Brahman alone.
If there is something to be worshipped then there is worship.  If there is something
to be illumined, there is the illuminator Siva.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

39.  All is illusory.  There is no doubt of this.  All is only consciousness indeed.
If the existence of cause is real, the effect will also occur.

40.  If non existence be, I am without non existence.  Brahman alone am I, the refuge.
All this is only endless sorrow.  The undiminishing is unending bliss.

41. Life is endless and non stop struggle. Everything is total impurity.  The beyond
is endless purity.

42. Exceedingly evil is imagination.  I am totally pure.  Blemish is ever endless.
Goodness is ever endless.

43.  Fairness is ever endless.  Impurity is ever endless.  I am ever endless.  This is
ever endless.

44.  Brahman is ever endless.  The world is ever endless. There is no fear by what
has been uttered so far.  There is not the slightest difference as 'I'.

45. Real and unreal too are naught. Sentences that are considered as real and unreal
too are non existent.  They are non existent.  There is no doubt of this - Brahman alone am I. There is no doubt of this.

46.  Cause and effect are all non existent.  There is no doubt of this.  So it is with doer, enjoyer and action; there is nothing to be enjoyed nor there is any contentment
of enjoyment.

Arunachala Siva.

47. All is Brahman. Of this there can be no doubt.  The term 'all' is not true.
Past. future and present, and activity are ever non existent.

48. Real, unreal, distinguished and distinction; qualities or the differentiation
of qualities -- none of these exist. Purity and impurity are naught, even in the least
non existent.

49.  Speech or that which speak even, are naught; not in the least existent.
Great strength or utmost weakness, I or you are nowhere existent.

50.  That which is grasped, that which grasps, that which is to be ignored
none of these have anything in the least to do with the Self. So it is with holy
waters, any form of abulation, deity or the worship thereof.

51. There is no cause whatsoever for life or death.  Truth or any form of it
does not exist, not at all.

52.  Mother, father or body do not exist in the least.  There is nothing whatsoever
here of any form of the seer or the seen.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

53.  There is nothing here whatsoever in the least of illusory activity or illusion.
There is nothing here whatsoever of knowledge or the variety of knowledge.

54.  The topic of rejection of the whole world has been thus enunciated to you. 
The rare one who wears this even once attains the nature of the Self.

55.  Skanda:

The dissolution of maya with the three fold qualities results by the propitiation
of the Lord's lotus feet who wears the crescent moon as crest jewel and who is     
the father of Ganesa, the chief of hosts, but not by another means.

The heart blossoming  Knowledge, like a burst of lightning and with a glance
of utmost compassion, illumines the heart-lotus of the one whose penance is not
small one.  Such a one's emancipation is lasting.

That concludes chapter 21, a dialogue between Ribhu and Nidagha, titled
'Description of the topic of the expendability of the whole world'  in the sixth
amsa called Sankara of Sri Siva Rahasyam.

Chapter 21 concluded.

Arunachala Siva.

Chapter 22:

1.  Ribhu:  I say, all is full of Brahman.  All is naught.  The world is unreal.
I am Brahman;  I have no worry. I am Brahman. I have no insentience. 

2. I a Brahman;  I have no defects. I am Brahman;  I have no fruit.  I am Brahman;
I have no news.  I am Brahman; I have no second.

3. I am Brahman;  I have no permanence.  I am Brahman;  I have no goal.
I am Brahman;  I have no mother.  I am Brahman.  I have no father.

4.  I am Brahman. 'He is this' - there is none for me.  I am not Vaisvanara,
the digestive fire.  I am Brahman, the space of consciousness. I am Brahman
-   there is no doubt of this.

5-7.  I am the interior of all;  I am the perfect Self; the interior of all and the innermost of the mind. I am indeed the end of the body.  I am indeed, the firm,
ever.

8.  By worshipping the wise ones, a person becomes liberated while alive.  By offering
food and gifts to such sages, a person becomes instantly liberated.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.
