~sv.1-2 VASISTHA continued: With all the desires in the mind utterly silenced and having well grounded himself in the plane of non-dual consciousness, sage Vitahavya uttered the holy word OM.

~m.1. O Rama, as one who in possession of his Self and with all thinking completely subsided, he started slowly uttering 'Om' and attaining the various 'bhumikas' (stages) in sequence.

~vlm.1 VASISHTHA Continued:—Then repeating aloud the sacred syllable Om, and reflecting on the Universe contained in it; the sage obtained his internal peace, after he had got rid of his thoughts and was freed from his desires. (The meditation of Om or on presented all existence to his mind, and it is shown in the definition of that word in the Introduction of this book).

~Talk 294: Explaining adhyaropa-apavAdabhyam (superimposition and its elimination), zrI bhagavan pointed out that [dhyAna] turns you inward to the Self; and then according to [vicAra], you know that the world is not apart from the Self. ramaNa.

~sv. By the total abandonment of all concepts and percepts, he renounced the three worlds.

1~m.2--7 The sage uttered 'Om' with clearly partitioning it into its parts. While uttering in this way he attributed to each phase appropriately the forms of the pure, immutable Eternal. He started discarding the external and internal causes for the subtle and gross formations in the three worlds.

~vlm.3. He abstrcted his mind from his internal and external organs, as also from his grosser and finer feelings and tne sensibilities of his heart and body. He dismissed of whatever there is in the three worlds and converted all his desires to indifference.

~sv.5-6 He became utterly quiescent, as when the potter's wheel comes to rest.

~m. He was like a still potter's wheel.

~vlm.5. He was as the motionless wheel of the potter's mill, and as the calm ocean undisturbed by waves and winds.

~vlm.6. His mind was as the clear firmament, without its suit shine and darkness; and his heart was bright, without the light of the sun, moon and stars. His intellect was unclouded by the fumes, dust and cloud of ignorance, and hîs soul was as clear as the autumnal sky. (The gloss points out the combination of many figures in this tetrastich sloka).

~m.2--7 The sage uttered 'Om' with clearly partitioning it into its parts. While uttering in this way he attributed to each phase appropriately the forms of the pure, immutable Eternal. He started discarding the external and internal causes for the subtle and gross formations in the three worlds. He then abided in the Self which was like pure transparent crystal. He was like a Mandara maintain fully in a rest position. He was like a still potter's wheel. He was like the dust free clear sky in autumn. He cast off the fundamental elements composing the senses along with the long thread like sound of 'Om', like wind shedding the fragrance it was bearing.

~m. He cast off the fundamental elements composing the senses along with the long thread like sound of 'Om', like wind shedding the fragrance it was bearing.

~sv.7-8 By the utterance of the Om he dispelled the webs of sense-organs and their objects, even as wind disperses scent.

~vlm.7. Then raising his voice from the ventricle, to the topmost pranava in the cranium of his head; his mind transcended the region of the sensations, as the wind oversteps the area of fragrance: (which remains below.)

~vlm.8. His mental darkness then fled from his mind, as the gloom of night is dispelled by the dawning light of morn, and as the percipence of sapience, puts down and extinguishes the sparks of anger in the bosom.

~m.8-14 He then shed the element composing 'tamas' qualities. Then there was light. He shed that also in a trice. Then there was neither darkness nor light. Then he divested himself of the shred of mind still remaining. Then he shed the sentient consciousness still extant a little like the knowledge of an infant. This is the giving up of the objective state of consciousness. Then he attained the state of witness- perception (capability) and became pure existence. Then he entered the deep sleep state and remained still like a mountain. Abiding in that state, he achieved stability in that state. Later he gained the 'turya' state.

~vlm.9. He then beheld the reflexion of a flood of light within himself, which he found to be ceaseless in its brightness; and unlike the light of the luminaries, which is repeatedly succeeded by darkness.

~sv.9-15 He beheld the inner light for just a split second, but renounced that too immediately. He transcended both light and darkness. There remained just a trace of thought-form; this, too, the sage cut asunder in the twinkling of an eye, through the mind. Now the sage remained in the pure infinite consciousness, not modified in the least; it was like the state of consciousness of the just-born infant. He abandoned all objectivity of consciousness and even the slightest movement of consciousness. He crossed the state known as 'pasyanti' and reached the deep sleep consciousness. He continued beyond that, too, and reached the transcendental or turîya consciousness. It is a state of bliss that is not its description, which is both the 'is' and the 'is not', both something and not-something, light and darkness.

~m.8-14 He then shed the element composing 'tamas' qualities. Then there was light. He shed that also in a trice. Then there was neither darkness nor light. Then he divested himself of the shred of mind still remaining. Then he shed the sentient consciousness still extant a little like the knowledge of an infant. This is the giving up of the objective state of consciousness. Then he attained the state of witness- perception (capability) and became pure existence. Then he entered the deep sleep state and remained still like a mountain. Abiding in that state, he achieved stability in that state. Later he gained the 'turya' state.

~m.15-17 . In that state he was without joy and yet he was with bliss. He had no existence yet he was existing in his Self. He had no form yet he was in his own form of Self. He was not transcendent and yet he was transcendent. He attained that indescribable state where it is said 'this is not, this is not'. He became that equal Brahman, the Vast.

~vlm.16. He was intelligent in his spirit, without the intelligence of the senses; and was as the Sruti says, neither this nor that nor the one or the other. He therefore became that which no words can express.

~m.15-17 . In that state he was without joy and yet he was with bliss. He had no existence yet he was existing in his Self. He had no form yet he was in his own form of Self. He was not transcendent and yet he was transcendent. He attained that indescribable state where it is said 'this is not, this is not'. He became that equal Brahman, the Vast.

~vwv.1182/5.87.20. It is the Self for the knowers of the Self, absence of Selfhood for those who think like that, the middle state for the #mAdhyamika-s (a schoolof Buddhist philosophers) and the All for those whose minds are peretly equal.

~vlm.20. He was the same with the soul of souls of the Psychologists, and as no soul of Physicists; he was similar to the Midst or Midmost of the Mádhamikas (i.e. having no beginning nor end), and the All of the even-minded Pantheists.

~sv.17-24 That state is the void, Brahman, consciousness, the Purusa of the Sankhya, Isvara of the yogi, Siva, time, Atman or self, non-self, the middle, etc., of the mystics holding different views.

tat sad asau sthita: - that is Being situated here.

~sv.17-24 That state is the void, Brahman, consciousness, the Purusa of the Sankhya, Isvara of the yogi, Siva, time, Atman or self, non-self, the middle, etc., of the mystics holding different views. It is that state which is established as the truth by all these scriptural viewpoints, that which is all — in that the sage remained firmly established.

~m.22 That state was always inactive, self-luminous and illuminates all light giving objects like Sun etc.

~vlm.22. He was identic with the pre-eminent and unimpaired light, which is seen in all lightsome bodies; and was one with the inward light, which he perceived to be glowing within himself.

~m.23 He was in that state of Alone but multiple depending on the support characteristies.

~vlm.23. He became the very thing which is one and many, and which is all yet nothing. Which is simple and combined with all, and which is that which is Tat Sat.

~m.24 Thus Vitahavya was in that supreme state which is free of all birth cycles and impurities. He was in the form of consciousness ether. Even so in a trice he could become Iswara, the Lord.

~vlm.24. In short he remained as the one undecaying and without its beginning, which is one and many, and simple without its parts. Which is purer than the pure ether, and which is the Lord God of all.

~sv.17-24 That state is the void, Brahman, consciousness, the Purusa of the Sankhya, Isvara of the yogi, Siva, time, Atman or self, non-self, the middle, etc., of the mystics holding different views. It is that state which is established as the truth by all these scriptural viewpoints, that which is all — in that the sage remained firmly established.

*eyv.1,8. (vIta.havya) who had thus reckoned within, his thinking and seeking calmed (or subdued) and the yogic step (or state of transcendence) won, abandoned the subtle elements of the senses (sound, touch, form, taste and smell), slowly uttering the mystic syllable OM.

*sv.1*2 VASISTHA continued: With all the desires in the mind utterly silenced and having well grounded himself in the plane of non*dual consciousness, sage Vitahavya uttered the holy word OM.

*Murty.1. O Rama, as one who in possession of his Self and with all thinking completely subsided, he started slowly uttering 'Om' and attaining the various 'bhumikas' (stages) in sequence.

*vlm.1 VASISHTHA Continued:—Then repeating aloud the sacred syllable Om, and reflecting on the Universe contained in it; the sage obtained his internal peace, after he had got rid of his thoughts and was freed from his desires. (The meditation of Om or on presented all existence to his mind, and it is shown in the definition of that word in the Introduction of this book).

*Talk 294: Explaining adhyaropa*apavAdabhyam (superimposition and its elimination), zrI bhagavan pointed out that [dhyAna] turns you inward to the Self; and then according to [vicAra], you know that the world is not apart from the Self. ramaNa.

*Murty.2**7 The sage uttered 'Om' with clearly partitioning it into its parts. While uttering in this way he attributed to each phase appropriately the forms of the pure, immutable Eternal. He started discarding the external and internal causes for the subtle and gross formations in the three worlds.

*vlm.3. He abstrcted his mind from his internal and external organs, as also from his grosser and finer feelings and tne sensibilities of his heart and body. He dismissed of whatever there is in the three worlds and converted all his desires to indifference.

*sv.5*6 He became utterly quiescent, as when the potter's wheel comes to rest.

*vlm.6. His mind was as the clear firmament, without its suit shine and darkness; and his heart was bright, without the light of the sun, moon and stars. His intellect was unclouded by the fumes, dust and cloud of ignorance, and hîs soul was as clear as the autumnal sky. (The gloss points out the combination of many figures in this tetrastich sloka).

*Murty.2**7 The sage uttered 'Om' with clearly partitioning it into its parts. While uttering in this way he attributed to each phase appropriately the forms of the pure, immutable Eternal. He started discarding the external and internal causes for the subtle and gross formations in the three worlds. He then abided in the Self which was like pure transparent crystal. He was like a Mandara maintain fully in a rest position. He was like a still potter's wheel. He was like the dust free clear sky in autumn. He cast off the fundamental elements composing the senses along with the long thread like sound of 'Om', like wind shedding the fragrance it was bearing.

*Murty. He cast off the fundamental elements composing the senses along with the long thread like sound of 'Om', like wind shedding the fragrance it was bearing.

*sv.7*8 By the utterance of the Om he dispelled the webs of sense*organs and their objects, even as wind disperses scent.

*vlm.7. Then raising his voice from the ventricle, to the topmost pranava in the cranium of his head; his mind transcended the region of the sensations, as the wind oversteps the area of fragrance: (which remains below.)

*vlm.8. His mental darkness then fled from his mind, as the gloom of night is dispelled by the dawning light of morn, and as the percipence of sapience, puts down and extinguishes the sparks of anger in the bosom.

*Murty.8*14 He then shed the element composing 'tamas' qualities. Then there was light. He shed that also in a trice. Then there was neither darkness nor light. Then he divested himself of the shred of mind still remaining. Then he shed the sentient consciousness still extant a little like the knowledge of an infant. This is the giving up of the objective state of consciousness. Then he attained the state of witness* perception (capability) and became pure existence. Then he entered the deep sleep state and remained still like a mountain. Abiding in that state, he achieved stability in that state. Later he gained the 'turya' state.

*vlm.9. He then beheld the reflexion of a flood of light within himself, which he found to be ceaseless in its brightness; and unlike the light of the luminaries, which is repeatedly succeeded by darkness.

*sv.9*15 He beheld the inner light for just a split second, but renounced that too immediately. He transcended both light and darkness. There remained just a trace of thought*form; this, too, the sage cut asunder in the twinkling of an eye, through the mind. Now the sage remained in the pure infinite consciousness, not modified in the least; it was like the state of consciousness of the just*born infant. He abandoned all objectivity of consciousness and even the slightest movement of consciousness. He crossed the state known as 'pasyanti' and reached the deep sleep consciousness. He continued beyond that, too, and reached the transcendental or turîya consciousness. It is a state of bliss that is not its description, which is both the 'is' and the 'is not', both something and not*something, light and darkness.

*Murty.8*14 He then shed the element composing 'tamas' qualities. Then there was light. He shed that also in a trice. Then there was neither darkness nor light. Then he divested himself of the shred of mind still remaining. Then he shed the sentient consciousness still extant a little like the knowledge of an infant. This is the giving up of the objective state of consciousness. Then he attained the state of witness* perception (capability) and became pure existence. Then he entered the deep sleep state and remained still like a mountain. Abiding in that state, he achieved stability in that state. Later he gained the 'turya' state.

*vlm.10. Having attained to that state of ineffable light, and inextinguishable effulgence; he found his mental powers to be quickly burnt down by its glare as the straws are consumed by the touch of fire.

*Murty.8*14 He then shed the element composing 'tamas' qualities. Then there was light. He shed that also in a trice. Then there was neither darkness nor light. Then he divested himself of the shred of mind still remaining. Then he shed the sentient consciousness still extant a little like the knowledge of an infant. This is the giving up of the objective state of consciousness. Then he attained the state of witness* perception (capability) and became pure existence. Then he entered the deep sleep state and remained still like a mountain. Abiding in that state, he achieved stability in that state. Later he gained the 'turya' state.

*Murty.8*14 Then he shed the sentient consciousness still extant a little like the knowledge of an infant.

*vlm.12. It was in a twinkling or half of that time, that this sedate sage stopped the course of his thought, as the current wind stops its motion in a moment.

*Murty. This is the giving up of the objective state of consciousness. Then he attained the state of witness* perception (capability) and became pure existence. Then he entered the deep sleep state and remained still like a mountain. Abiding in that state, he achieved stability in that state. Later he gained the 'turya' state.

*vlm.14. He was next lost in his Susupta*hypnotism, as in the insensibility of his profound sleep; and thereby attained his ultimate felicity of turya, in the retention of his absolute felicity only.

*Murty.8*14 He then shed the element composing 'tamas' qualities. Then there was light. He shed that also in a trice. Then there was neither darkness nor light. Then he divested himself of the shred of mind still remaining. Then he shed the sentient consciousness still extant a little like the knowledge of an infant.

Then he entered the deep sleep state and remained still like a mountain. Abiding in that state, he achieved stability in that state. Later he gained the 'turya' state.

*vlm.15. He was joyous in his joylessness, and was alive without his liveliness; he remained as something in his nothingness, and was blazing amidst obscurity. (His soul shone forth amidst the gloom of his mind).

*Murty.15*17 . In that state he was without joy and yet he was with bliss. He had no existence yet he was existing in his Self. He had no form yet he was in his own form of Self. He was not transcendent and yet he was transcendent. He attained that indescribable state where it is said 'this is not, this is not'. He became that equal Brahman, the Vast.

*sv.16 It is full of non*consciousness and (objectless) consciousness, it can only be indicated by negation (not this, not this). He became that which is beyond description.

*vlm.16. He was intelligent in his spirit, without the intelligence of the senses; and was as the Sruti says, neither this nor that nor the one or the other. He therefore became that which no words can express.

*Murty.15*17 . In that state he was without joy and yet he was with bliss. He had no existence yet he was existing in his Self. He had no form yet he was in his own form of Self. He was not transcendent and yet he was transcendent. He attained that indescribable state where it is said 'this is not, this is not'. He became that equal Brahman, the Vast.

*sv.17*24 That state is the void, Brahman, consciousness, the Purusa of the Sankhya, Isvara of the yogi, Siva, time, Atman or self, non*self, the middle, etc., of the mystics holding different views. It is that state which is established as the truth by all these scriptural viewpoints, that which is all — in that the sage remained firmly established.

*Murty. ... For advocates of 'Sunyavada', that state is 'void' state. For some it is Brahmic state. For Vijnana protagonists it is vijnana state...

* RKhare – With regard to the Absolute Reality, the author of the Yogavāsiṣṭha says that it is the same, “that’s called Śūnya by the Śūnya*vādins, Brahman by the Brahma*vids, Puruṣa by the Sāṁhkya thinkers Iśvara by the followers of the Yoga school, Śiva by the Śaivas, Time by those who believe Time to be the only Reality, the Self by those who think the Self to be so, Non*self by the philosophers who do not believe in the reality of the Self, Madhyama by the Mādhyamikas, and the All by those who have  a vision of equality all around (YV 5. 87.18*20). Again note that these YV passages are essentially same as in MU 5.88.17*19).

*vwv.1181/5.87.19. It is #puruSa (or the Soul) for those having the view of the #sAMkhyA (philosophers), #Izvara (or God) for the teachers of Yoga, #ziva for the worshippers of Shiva and Time for those asserting only Time (as Reality).

*vlm.19. He became like the Purusha or spirit of the Sankhya materialists, and the Iswara of Yoga philosophers; he was alike the Siva of the Sivites, bearing the mark of the crescent moon on their foreheads, and as the Time of Timeists.

*sv.17*24 That state is the void, Brahman, consciousness, the Purusa of the Sankhya, Isvara of the yogi, Siva, time, Atman or self, non*self, the middle, etc., of the mystics holding different views. It is that state which is established as the truth by all these scriptural viewpoints, that which is all — in that the sage remained firmly established.

*Murty.18*20 . He attained that Supreme State which is described severally by several philosophical streams. For advocates of 'Sunyavada', that state is 'void' state. For some it is Brahmic state. For Vijnana protagonists it is vijnana state. For sankhyas it is Purusha state. For yoga philosophers it is the state of Iswara. For 'jivanmuktas' it is all*form.

*vwv.1182/5.87.20. It is the Self for the knowers of the Self, absence of Selfhood for those who think like that, the middle state for the #mAdhyamika*s (a schoolof Buddhist philosophers) and the All for those whose minds are peretly equal.

*vlm.20. He was the same with the soul of souls of the Psychologists, and as no soul of Physicists; he was similar to the Midst or Midmost of the Mádhamikas (i.e. having no beginning nor end), and the All of the even*minded Pantheists.

*sv.17*24 That state is the void, Brahman, consciousness, the Purusa of the Sankhya, Isvara of the yogi, Siva, time, Atman or self, non*self, the middle, etc., of the mystics holding different views.

*Murty.22 That state was always inactive, self*luminous and illuminates all light giving objects like Sun etc.

*vlm.22. He was identic with the pre*eminent and unimpaired light, which is seen in all lightsome bodies; and was one with the inward light, which he perceived to be glowing within himself.

*Murty.23 He was in that state of Alone but multiple depending on the support characteristies.

*vlm.23. He became the very thing which is one and many, and which is all yet nothing. Which is simple and combined with all, and which is that which is Tat Sat.

*Murty.24 Thus Vitahavya was in that supreme state which is free of all birth cycles and impurities. He was in the form of consciousness ether. Even so in a trice he could become Iswara, the Lord.

*vlm.24. In short he remained as the one undecaying and without its beginning, which is one and many, and simple without its parts. Which is purer than the pure ether, and which is the Lord God of all.

*sv.17*24 That state is the void, Brahman, consciousness, the Purusa of the Sankhya, Isvara of the yogi, Siva, time, Atman or self, non*self, the middle, etc., of the mystics holding different views. It is that state which is established as the truth by all these scriptural viewpoints, that which is all — in that the sage remained firmly established.
