universe and self

The universe projected from self is not different from self

yathā na toyato bhinnāstaraṃgaḥ phenabudbudaḥ/
ātmano na tathā bhinnaṃ viśvamātmavinirgatam ॥ 2-4॥

Ashtavakra Samhita Chapter 2 Verse 4

The waves, foam and the bubbles are not different from the water. Similarly the Universe, projected from the Self is not different from the Self.

aṃtastyaktakasāyasya nirdvandvasya nirāśisaḥ।
yadrcchayāgato bhogo na duḥkhāya na tusṭaye ॥ 3-14॥.

Ashtavakra Samhita Chapter 3 Verse 14

The person who has given up worldly attachments from his mind. The person who has gone beyond the experiences of pairs of opposites. The person who is free from desires and cravings, any experiences coming as a matter, can never cause either pain or pleasure.

May you remember your divinity and divine inheritance.

With Love and Best Wishes,
