Chapter 19 (Repose in the Self)

janaka uvāca
tattvavijñānasandaśamādāya hdayodarāt

nāvidhaparāmarśaśalyoddhāra kto 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 dharma kva ca vā kāma kva cārtha kva vivekitā
kva dvaita kva ca vā’dvaita svamahimni sthitasya me

For me, established in my own glory, there is no religion, sensuality, possessions, philosophy, duality or even non-duality.

kva bhūta kva bhaviyad vā vartamānamapi kva vā
kva deśa kva ca vā nitya 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 śubha kvāśubha 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 svapna kva suuptirvā kva ca jāgaraa tathā
kva turīya bhaya 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 dūra kva samīpa vā bāhya kvābhyantara kva vā
kva sthūla kva ca vā sūkma 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 mtyurjīvita vā kva lokā kvāsya kva laukikam
kva laya 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

mind.

ala trivargakathayā yogasya kathayāpyalam
ala 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.
