75.  The species is full of mind.  This attribute is full of mind.  This scene is full of mind.  This insentience
is full of mind.

76.  Whatever there is, is full of mind.  That which exists as individual is full of mind.  Thought alone is
ignorance.  Thought alone is difference.

77. Thought alone is knowledge.  Thought alone is pairs of opposites.  Thought alone is time.
Thought alone is space.

78. Thought alone is body.  Thought alone is life force.  Thought alone is contemplation.  Thought alone
is listening.

79.  Thought alone is hell.  Heaven too is thought.   Thought alone is consciousness.  Thought alone
is contemplation of the Self.

80. The triviality is thought only.   Brahman is thought only.  What trifle there is, is thought alone.
That is naught, ever.

81. Thought alone is naught, naught alone.   The three worlds are naught, naught indeed. The Guru
is naught, naught indeed.  So too is sishya, the disciple, truly naught.

82.The body too is naught, non  existent.   The mind is not at all existent, never.  Even a trifle is
naught, naught ever.  The whole world is naught, naught.           

83.  The beings indeed are naught, naught indeed.  Everything is non existent indeed, no doubt.
Nidagha, this chapter titled 'All is naught' is revealed to you by me.  Whosoever hears this even once,
he becomes Brahman himself.

84.  The peace of mind attained by the Upanishadic knowledge, by the longing for the lotus feet of
moon-adorned Lord, by divesting oneself of the bondage called the forest of transmigratory life
comprising one's dear consort, sons and their own attachments, by renunciation and such spiritual
practices, by even an occasional meditation on Siva's feet, cannot be achieved by shrewd logic or
vociferous scholarship. 

85.  For those seers, in whom the endless phantasmagoria of the world has subsided and who abide
without free will, there are no states of waking, dream and deep sleep, and no life and death.

This concludes Chapter 8, entitled 'Determination of the world being void and the non existence
of all' in the sixth amsa entitled Sankara of Sri Siva Rahasyam.

Chapter 9:


1.  Nidagha:

Revered Master, where do you perform your sacred bath?  What is the mantra for ablution?  What is
the auspicious time for ablution and for offering of holy waters?  Please tell me. 

2. Ribhu:

The bath in the Self is the great ablution, the daily ablution and not anything else.  'I am Brahman'  -
This certitude alone is the great ablution.

3. I am of the form of the Supreme Brahman.  I am of Supreme Bliss.  I am of the form, 'I am Brahman'
-- this conviction indeed is the profound ablution.


4. I am of the form of knowledge. I am the Supreme alone. I am of the form of Peace only.  I am without
any impurities.   

5.  I am of the form of the eternal only.  I am imply the permanent.  This, indeed, is the supreme  Brahman.
I am Brahman alone.

6.  I am only of the nature of everything.  I am the leftover.  All this is verily Brahman.  I am Brahman
alone.

Arunachala Siva.
