nāvidhaparāmarśaśalyoddhāraḥ kṛto mayā
Janaka said: Using the tweezers of the knowledge of the Truth I have managed to extract the painful thorn of endless opinions from the recesses of my heart.
kva dharmaḥ kva ca vā kāmaḥ kva cārthaḥ kva vivekitā
kva dvaitaṁ kva ca vā’dvaitaṁ svamahimni sthitasya me
For me, established in my own glory, there is no religion, sensuality, possessions, philosophy, duality or even non-duality.
kva bhūtaṁ kva bhaviṣyad vā vartamānamapi kva vā
kva deśaḥ kva ca vā nityaṁ svamahimni sthitasya me
Where is the past, where is the future, where even is the present? Where is space, and where, even is the eternity for me who abides in my own glory?
kva cātmā kva ca vānātmā kva śubhaṁ kvāśubhaṁ yathā
kva cintā kva ca vācintā svamahimni sthitasya me
For me established in my own glory, there is no self or non-self, no good or evil, no thought or even absence of thought.
kva svapnaḥ kva suṣuptirvā kva ca jāgaraṇaṁ tathā
kva turīyaṁ bhayaṁ vāpi svamahimni sthitasya me
For me established in my own glory, there is no dreaming or deep sleep, no waking nor fourth state beyond them, and certainly no fear.
kva dūraṁ kva samīpaṁ vā bāhyaṁ kvābhyantaraṁ kva vā
kva sthūlaṁ kva ca vā sūkṣmaṁ svamahimni sthitasya me
For me established in my own glory, there is nothing far away and nothing near, nothing within or without, nothing large and nothing small.
kva mṛtyurjīvitaṁ vā kva lokāḥ kvāsya kva laukikam
kva layaḥ kva samādhirvā svamahimni sthitasya me
For me established in my own glory, there is no life or death, no worlds or things of this world, no distraction and no stillness of
alaṁ trivargakathayā yogasya kathayāpyalam
alaṁ vijñānakathayā viśrāntasya mamātmani
To talk about the three ends of life is needless, to talk about yoga is purposeless, and even to talk about wisdom is irrelevant for me who reposes in the Self.
