Chapter 2 - State of Realization

The world appears from the ignorance of the Self and disappears with the knowledge of the Self, even as the snake appears from the non-cognition of the rope and disappears with its recognition

Knowledge, Knower and Knowable - these three do not in reality exist. I'm that stainless self in which this triad appears through ignorance.

Oh, duality is the root of all misery. There is no other remedy for it except the realisation that all objects of experience are false and that I am one and pure, intelligence and bliss

I am pure intelligence. Through ignorance i have imposed limitation upon myself. Constantly reflecting in this way, I am abiding in the Absolute.

Oh, in me the limitless ocean, diverse waves of worlds are produced forthwith on the rising of the wind of the mind

With the calming of the wind of the mind in the infinite ocean of myself, the ark of the universe of Jiva, the trader, unfortunately meets destruction
