The Great Lord said:

The Lotus–eyed (Vishnu) is not the Deity. Thetree-eyed (Shiva) is also not the Deity. For, theDeity is not incarnate in the body; nor is the Deityof the form of the mind. The splendour which isnot artificial and which is without beginning andend is called the Deity.

For those who have not known the essentialnature of the deity, the worship of the form andthe like has been prescribed. To one who isincapable of (travelling) a distance of one Yojana(eight miles) a distance of one kosa (two miles)have been prescribed.

Know that as the worship of the Deity in whichthe Divine Self is worshipped by the flowers of tranquillity, knowledge and the like. Worship of the form is not worship.

The worship with flowers and the like is laid (inthe scriptures) only in the absence of tranquillity, perception (or knowledge) and similar virtues.

Pure intelligence (or Consciousness) which is beyond all parts (or fragmentation) and which isof the nature of the generality of Existence,attaining to the nature of vast Existence (or thetotality of Being) is described by the word “Deva”(or the Deity)

(That Pure Consciousness) gradually moved bysplendour of the energies of space, time and thelike, having become the Jiva (individualisedconsciousness), soon becomes the Buddhi (theintellect). Thereafter (it becomes) the sense of “I”.Then attaining to the state of mind it clings toworldly existence.

This (Pure Consciousness) experiences sorrow,abiding in the body, due to the idea of “I am”.This unhappiness that has come, nourished bymere imagination is destroyed only by theabsence of imagination (or thought). There is nodoubt in this matter.

Warding off the turbidity of your imagination byyourself and having reached the highest clearness(or serenity) of the Self, be supremely happy.

The Self is indeed full of all powers (or energies).He accomplishes all things thoroughly. He is theDeity. He is also the Highest. He is always worthyof worship by the wise (or virtuous) ones.

His worship is only meditation within. Nothingelse is (his) worship. Therefore, let one worshiphim, who is eternal, who is the support of thethree worlds, who is of the nature of PureConsciousness, and who shines like a hundred-thousand suns, and who illumines all appearances, by meditation.
