Darśana-upaniṣad X


  1. Now I will explain in detail the contemplation (samādhi) that destroys saṁsāra. Samādhi generates that consciousness of unity between parama-ātman and jīva-ātman.
  2. The eternal and omnipresent ātman, unchangeable, righteous, is one, divided only due to the māyā’s confusion and not by its own nature –
  3. Therefore only the non-dualism exists, not the universe, not the transmigration. As is said about the infinite space to be jug’s space or hut’s space,
  4. So is said by those confused that ātman is to be of two types: jīva and īśvara-ātman. “I am not the body and neither the prāṇa, not the senses and neither the mind,
  5. And because the witness is always my own nature, I am alone (kevala)” – o, best among sages! This knowledge that has been described here is samādhi.
  6. “I am this” brahman, and not a transient entity, there is no one else but me. As foam, waves etc. that constantly appear from the ocean
  7. Dissolve again in the ocean, so the universe dissolves in me. Therefore the mind does not really exists and neither illusion of universe.
  8. For who this parama-ātman, the real self, manifests, he directly and by himself obtains the supreme immortality – the supreme state.
  9. When in the mind shines relentlessly the omnipresent consciousness, then the yogin through non-separation becomes complete in himself.
  10. When he sees all beings only in his own ātman, and his own ātman in all beings – then obtains state of brahman.
  11. When the one who is in samādhi does not see all beings, being one with the Supreme, then he becomes one (kevala).
  12. When the ātman is really seen as brahman and the entire universe as an illusion (māyā), then becomes emancipated.
  13. Talking thus, this great ascetic, Lord Dattātreya, Sāṁkr̥ti through his own nature become happy and completely devoid of any fear.

Thus was the tenth part of Darśana-upaniṣad

OM! Peace, peace, peace.
