When this assemblage of body, senses, etc acts of its own accord, there arises an idea ‘I am this’. This is the Jiva stained by the dirt of ignorance.
If you separate yourself from the body and abide at ease in Consciousness you will become one with the sole Reality, everything appearing insignificant like grass.
Oh Raghava! Be outwardly active, but inwardly inactive; outwardly a doer, but inwardly a non-doer. Thus play your part in the world.
I, the pure, stainless and infinite Consciousness beyond Maya, look upon this body in action like the body of another.
Oh Rama! The enquiry into the Self of the nature of ‘Who am I?' is the fire which burns up the seeds of the evil tree which is the mind.
Consciousness, which is undivided, imagines to itself desirable objects and runs after them. It is then known as the mind. Transcendence of the mind.
The knowledge of the Self is the fire that burns up the dry grass of desire. This indeed is what is called Samadhi, not mere abstention from speech.
Just as the great ocean of milk became still when the Mandara Mountain (with which the ocean of milk was churned) became still, even so the illusion of samsara comes to an end when the mind is stilled.
Salutations to the Serene Effulgence, infinite and all-pervasive, unlimited.
The Brihat (great) Yoga Vasista or the Yoga Vasista Maha Ramayana, as it is also called, contains over 29,000 verses in Sanskrit.
