60.  The Mantra - I am Brahman am I - destroys all otherness.  The Mantra - I am Brahman am I -
is the granter of undisputable hallowedness.

61.  The Mantra - I am Brahman am I - wipes out the knowledge of non self.  The Mantra - I am
Brahman am I - confers the Bliss of Knowledge.

62.  The seven crores of great Mantras bring in their train crores of birth.  Therefore, renouncing
all the Mantras one must resort to the repetition of this one Mantra.

63.  One attains liberation instantly.  There is no doubt for me about this.  This is the secret of the
countless Vedas pronounced in the chapter of Mantras.  Whoever hears this even once becomes
Brahman oneself.

64.  Isa, the Lord, is the One who is ever Blissful, the source of supreme joy, the eternal, the one from
whom the world full of sorrow arises and shines inseparable from Him.  Such a one is unattainable
through speech, mind, hosts of senses or the body.  He is inscrutable, the doctor for the world disease.
He is the sovereign Lord.  The pure intellect which perceives this attains freedom.

The chapter 9, entitled 'Determination of I am Brahman' in the Sixth amsa called Sankara of
Sri Siva Rahasyam is concluded.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

Chapter 10:

1. Ribhu:

Listen to my words, Nidagha!  I shall describe tarpana - the daily water offering (libation).  This is very
difficult for humans to come by in the Vedas and Sastras.

2. The world does not exist, ever.  Something to be referred to as 'this' does not exist.  Brahman alone
is, being ever perfect.   This alone is tarpana to Brahman.

3.  I am Brahman with form.  Even Existence Consciousness Bliss am I.  I am a solid mass of Bliss -
such alone is tarpana to Brahman.

4. I am always the complete Void.  I am ever with the one with Bliss of the Self.  I am of the eternal
and fleeting forms.  This alone can be tarpana to Brahman.

5.  I alone am the expanse of consciousness.  I am ever the space of the Self.  I am satisfied within
myself.  This alone is tarpana to Brahman. 

6.  I am devoid of the numeration such as one.  I am formless.  I am non dual.  I am of the form
that is eternally pure. This alone is tarpana to Brahman.

7.  Subtler than space am I. I am totally non existent.  I am of the form of the all-shining.  This alone
is tarpana to Brahman.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

satra - the sacred oblation, devoid of seer, seen and such.

9.  Whatever little there be, I am not.  I am the profound silence, here.  I am the nature of perfect
freedom.   This alone is tarpana to Brahman.

This alone is tarpana to Brahman.

12. "Thou art thus", 'That is such"- not even a trace of such exists. I am only pure Awareness -
This alone is tarpana to Brahman.

13.  I am of the form of absolute non existence.  I alone am the higher than the most high.  I alone
am Bliss and nothing else.  This alone is tarpana to Brahman.

14.  'This is all gold" - there is not an iota of such a thing.  I promise you.  I am of the form of joy
devoid of qualities.  This alone is tarpana to Brahman.

15.  I am never a witness, being devoid of witness and being of the nature of Brahman alone.
This alone is tarpana to Brahman.

53.  You are verily like the horn of a hare.  I am indeed like the horn of a hare.  All this is  like the
horn of a hare.  The interior is like the horn of a hare.

54.  Thus the explanation of homa of the Self has been told by me.  The one who hears even once
becomes Brahman oneself.

55. Skanda: 

Out of fear for Isvara - in whom the entire universe, the Lord's joyous feet, is established -
the sun and the moon shine.  The lightning, fire, gods of wind and rain worship Him in awe
and reverence.  In Him manifest the gods, the demons, the various life forms and even all that
is invisible during each cycle of creation.  For Him no action of the beings is so desirable as
contemplation on Him.

56.  Siva, though residing in the midst of beings of the world, because of His subtle nature cannot
be perceived by the regulation of inhalation and exhalations of breath, by the mind, by
reflection, by the intellect, by the five fold retention within the mind, by the withdrawal of mind
from objects or by countless utterances of the Vedas.  But He can be realized through the wise
counsel of the Guru by the one endowed with self control and devotion, and not by any other means.       

Thus concludes the chapter entitled Description of the two fold topics of abulation to Brahman and
oblation of the Self, in the sixth amsa called Sankara of Sri Siva Rahasyam.

contd.,

Arunachala Siva.

Chapter 11:

1. Ribhu:

I shall explain  the knowledge of Brahman and the traits of a Jivanmukta.  One who is firmly established
in the Self alone is referred to as a Jivanmukta.

2. I am thus Brahman alone.  Without doubt I am the Self.  One who is rooted in the conviction that
the consciousness is the Self is called a Jivanmukta.

3.  I am the consciousness that is the Self. I am the supreme Self. I am without qualities. I am
beyond the Supreme.  One who has such a conviction is called a Jivanmukta.

4. I am beyond the three fold bodies. I am the consciousness that is Brahman.  One whose ultimate
resolve is 'I am Brahman' is called a Jivanmukta.

5.  I am of the form of a solid mass of Bliss.  I am beyond the transcendental Bliss.  For whom the
consciousness is verily supernal Bliss is called a Jivanmukta.

6.  For whom there is no body and such, whose certitude is in Brahman, who is filled with transcendental
Bliss is called a Jivanmukta.

7.  For whom there is no trace of ego, who is established in consciousness alone, who is the supreme
Bliss and who rejoices in Bliss is called a Jivanmukta.
