Where the one Reality alone is, how can it be said that “this world is illusory” or “this world is not illusory”, “this is a shadow” or “this is not a shadow”? By the Grace of the impersonal, avadhua Reality, those seeking liberation are inspired above all men with the disposition to non-duality, which relieves them of the great fear.

Know that the whole of the universe is forever unchanging. Words cannot describe this consciousness Absolute. Like the full moon is the Self.

Notes by the translator. For you, how can there be any distinction between the day and the night? I’m not the doer, nor am I the enjoyer; I do not pervade anything, nor am I pervaded.

Having lost his identity in the Self, free from the limitations of the illusory world, free also from the perfections of Yoga, thus walks the Avadhut. You are imperishable and eternal, then why do you cry?

He is the ever-free Reality [Brahman]. No instructions and no rituals are there for me. That all-pervasive ever blissful Reality, Immortality-giving knowledge am I. Neither a fool nor an expert am I, neither silent nor of many words; how can I speak of reasoning or argument since I am free even from the taint of Nirvana?

Neither that which is imagined, nor the imagination exist in you; know that cause and effect touch you not.

That Reality, Self, by whose power the whole universe is born, in which it abides and to which it finally returns like bubbles and waves in the sea, is realised by the wise. Neither paradise nor heaven exist in the Self.

This is the height of worship, and this is the culmination of all prayer. I wouldn’t want to be without it.
