Chapter 9: This, Is That

“The divine, self-illumined and self-manifesting, has made the doors of the senses to be outer-directed; hence, through the senses, one can perceive only outer objects, not the inner being. It is the blessed one, the intelligent one alone, in his longing to attain to the divine state, who turns his eyes and all his other senses inwards from outer objects; thus he realizes his inner being.”

“The one with an immature intellect, in his pursuit of outer pleasures, will fall into the trap of death, which is everywhere. The intelligent one who realizes the death-less state through his awareness will abandon all desire for the transitory pleasures of the world.”

“There is the One by whose grace man experiences sound, touch, form, taste, smell and sexual pleasure. By this One’s grace will man also know that in all this, after all, there is nothing.”

“This, is that.”

“The intelligent one does not grieve because he has known the all-pervading soul through which he perceives all experiences, both in the dream state and in the waking state.”

“The one who knows the divine to be so near to himself - the divine which gives the fruits of actions, which gives life to all, which is the ruler of the past, present and future - will, by this knowing, never condemn any man.”

“This, is that.”

“The one who sees the never-born One - the One who was before the five elements; the supreme One that arises out of purity; the One who, once having entered the inner sanctum of the heart of all living beings, remains there - this one truly sees.”

“This, is that.”

“The one who sees the goddess Aditi - she who is the life within life, she who is born in all living beings, and who, once having entered the inner sanctum of the heart, never leaves there - this one truly sees.”

“This, is that.”

“The Fire God is well protected. It is hidden and alive inside aranis, the fire-creating wood, just as the womb of the pregnant woman is protected and nurtured; the Fire God is worthy of daily obeisance by one who has what is needed for obeisance.”

“This, is that.”

“From where the Sun God is born and into where the Sun God disappears, all gods are surrendered to that; none can transcend this divine.”

“This, is that.”

“The divine that is here is also there; the divine that is there is also here. The one who sees the divine in this world as many will wander from death to death.”
