Atmabodha-Upanishad and Skanda-Upanishad in Short
|4 1 14|
The reciter of the Mantra "Om-namo-Narayanaya" reaches the Vaikuntha world. It is the heart-Kamala (lotus), viz., the city of Brahman. It is effulgent like lightning.
Om is all-pervading.
In the centre of the heart-lotus is Brahman, which is the All, which has Prajna as Its eye and which is established in Prajnana* alone. To creatures, Prajnana is the eye and Prajna is the seat.
* Prajna is said to be the Jiva in the third state. Prajnana is Prakarsha jnana or special wisdom, viz., of looking over the past and the future.
Place me in that nectar-everflowing unfailing world where Jyotis (the light) always shines and where one is revered.
The Supreme is not different from the individual Atma.
I reside in my glory alone. I am without old age. I am the mere ocean of bliss called salvation.
I am the Kutastha-Chaitanya (supreme Cosmic-mind). I am of the form of the Jyotis (light) free from motion.
I am the essence which is Sat itself.
I am the heart of all the worlds. I am replete with Supreme Bliss.
I am the One latent (in all).
I cognize as the secondless Atma by means of discriminative wisdom and reason.
To me the universe shines as true always.
In a wealthy person the desire for poverty does not arise.
To me there is no bondage.
A fool sees only darkness in the self-shining Supreme Bliss.
Being of the nature of Truth, there is not non-truth to me.
I abide as Samvit (Consciousness) alone.
