Atma Bodha Verses 51-60

Verse 51A Self realized soul has no likes & dislikes, accepts everything as they encounter, contented from within, without a desire to go, attain required motivation or achieve. Such a person has an equanimous view, with no attraction or repulsion towards anyone or any circumstance.A realized individual isn’t attracted to anything Motivation outside of oneself, has no expectations, realizes that what’s temporary (anityam). It doesn’t mean one sad but is fulfilled, contented, Evolution equanimous & Happiness, like a lamp goal or assignment shining brightly inside a kettle and no one may see from outside, is referred as Jivan mukti. Verse 52As specified before, the realized soul is not influenced by any development scenario the same as the fantasies distance, specified frequently in upanishads, that cannot be tainted, axed, burnt, wet or dried.It is the understanding that the substratum alone is real and all names & forms are but looks without a definite presence of their own. When the butter is Motivation turns expressed, it stands aloof, does interconnected not merge back in the buttermilk, as well as the accomplished person is separate, neither attached nor affected by whatever, resides as a witness until the prarabdha karma ends.Verse 53Prarabhda karma is the cause of the current body to experience the pleasures embarrassing & pain. The human anatomy is a location, boga sthanam.Upon self understanding, the karmas are erased along with the jivan dissolves into that One Supreme Presence, similar to the rivers merging to the ocean, little flame merges into the fire, the distance within the pot merging with the universal space, losing their name & shape.Sanjita, the accumulated effects of past karmas and Agami, the seeds to the next birth, both get erased in the fire of self Knowledge so there is no rebirth for its accomplished jivan.Verse 54As that One Supreme cannot be pointed out, the next three verses are descriptive languages using adjectives. Self Knowledge is the most deep knowledge where there’s nothing else to gain, it is the absolute bliss, beyond which there’s no other happiness, complete profit, beyond which none to realize.What is Advaita (non double ), Nishkria(inactive), Nirvikaram(with no changes), that’s Brahman, complete Bliss, One without a second!Verse 55This is very much like the previous verse. The Supreme presence is that One, upon understanding that, there is nothing to see (not available to physical sensations ), or gain any compliments leading to no rebirth for your person, jivan.The benefit of realizing One Supreme Brahman is that the elimination of dread. Fearless existence is your liberation from all shackles of life, it’s the contentment. Upon realizing that it is only a rope and not a coiled snake, the fear goes off and thereby, words and actions associated with that fear goes off, so this self knowledge eliminates all fears in the universe.Verse 56This Supreme, all pervading presence is highlighted here to be here, North, South,East, West, up and down. This Supreme existence is compared to distance within this verse as equally are limitless, without any modifications, ever present, only one of a type but the distinct difference is that Supreme existence is Knowledge,Chit but not the space! Space does not know it is, it doesn’t have that knowledge.Verse 57How do we understand that Supreme existence? Adi Sankara in this verse states only by way of Vedantic scriptures. By negating the form, name and any alteration, the body, Annamayya kosa is negated. Then by saying it is dormant negates the breath layer or Pranamaya kosa is negated, followed closely by the negation of the mind, the flow of mind the Manonmaya kosa, therefore the delicate body is negated leading to the negation of this body, meaning with no beliefs.This One existence with no second is limitless, One Absolute Bliss!Verse 58 The joy, pleasures that all these beings from the Deities to the minute species, all combined is but a glimpse of the One Supreme Bliss.Verse 59That One existence, known as Atman, is in all looks. We love another individual or being signifies the recognition of the existence because embodiment. Without that presence that which is inert.
