I salute that Supreme Self from ignorance of whom there
is duality and whom when known [the notion of] duality
ceases completely, like a rope-snake [in the wake of
knowledge of the rope] (ii)

Salutations to the sadguru, who is like the sun to the darkness
of Self ignorance, by the light of whose teaching the Self which
is pure consciousness shines for us. (iii)

Let me be happy and let me not suffer. Here, [in this world] every
person naturally has a desire to gain happiness and to remove
sorrow. Regarding this, some one person, endowed with
tremendous merit (puya), having realized that happiness born of
sense objects is suffering alone because it is inseparably connected to
the inevitable suffering that follows and because it is time-bound, he,
with effort, having renounced attachments (tyaktsakti, completely
turns his back on transmigratory existence (sasra) along with its
means. And one who has dispassion (virakta)strives to eliminate
sasra. Because sasra is caused by an incomplete understanding
3
of the nature of the Self, Self knowledge is the means for its cessation;
thus, the teacher teaches Self knowledge to him

Just as in the wake of the sun all activities in the world
take place, so too in the presence of the Self, which, like
space, is completely free of all conditioning adjuncts, the
mind and the senses function. I am that Self whose nature
is timeless consciousness. (1)
