A brief discourse of Yoga ||14||
1Hari said: -I will how describe the great Yoga which give emancipation and enjoyment. The Dhyayins (yogins) hold that the Lord Hari alone to be meditated on.
2Therefore, listen to it, O great Mana. Vishnu, the lord of all, is the destroyer of sins, without end and devoid of feet and body.
3He is Vasudeva, the lord of the universe and identical with Brahmana. Although he daily assumes various bodies he is (in south) devoid of them all.
4He is shorn of the natural functions of the body and is devoid of death and decay, stationed in the six fold objects he is seer, hearer and smeller and is (at the same time) above the reach of organs.
5He is devoid of the functions of senses, the creator and has no name or family.
6The deity is in the mind but does not himself possess it. He is devoid of mental faculties, discriminative knowledge and knowledge. He perceives all by intellect, is stationed it, the witness of all and omniscient; (and at the same time) he is devoid of intellect.
7He is devoid of the functions of intellect, is all, present everywhere, and is in the mind of all. He is freed from vital airs and is devoid of their actions.
8But he is the vital principle of all creatures, of a quiescent soul and divorced from fear. He is shorn of Ahankara (egoism) and other principles and devoid of their natural actions.
9But he is their witness, the ordained thereof and of the form of great felicity. He is the witness of the various states of waking, dreamless sleep and dreaming sleep and himself is above them all.
10But he is Turiya , the great ordainer, of the form of the quarter and devoid of gunas (qualities). He is emancipated, enlightened, undecaying, all pervading, all-auspicious and always present in self.
11Understanding this the men, who meditate on this great is (God), attain to his form. There is no need of ascertaining actions in this matter.
12O Sankara, O thou of good vows, I have thus described the Dhyana. He, who always regards, it attains to the region of Vishnu.
