Sukastaka (Vedantic Poem)

Sukastaka (Vedantic Poem)
He in whom all ideas of difference and non-difference have been simultaneously eliminated, merit and demerit extinguished, attachment to, and love for, worldly objects rooted out, whose attitude towards skepticism has been destroyed, and who, having attained the knowledge of Truth that is inaccessible to speech and destitute of the traid of qualities, walks in the path of Complete Renunciation (the state entirely free from influence of three gunas); for him there are no laws; mandatory or prohibitory.He who, having fully realized the Self that is within and without all bodies and always fills as it were this (grand) receptacle of the Universe, and having seen no other effect (or phenomenon) independent of that (universal) cause, walks in the path of complete renunciation; for him there are no laws, mandatory or prohibitory.As a thing made of gold is turned into gold when thrown into fire, as milk become milk with milk, and as water becomes water in the middle of water, because of the sameness of essential matter, so this phenomenal world is on the realizing the knowledge conveyed by the sentence “Thou art That” dissolved into the one Brahman because of the sameness of their nature. For him who realizing this, walks in the path of complete renunciation, there are no laws, mandatory or prohibitory.He who realizes the one with whom all this universe is one because of their identity and sees that all the elements earth, water, fire, air and sky, which are modifications of the same life-principle vanish into it gradually again, as salt vanishes in the salt-ocean, and walks in the path of complete renunciation, for him there are no laws, mandatory or prohibitory.As the rivers and the sea contains the same liquid and form one ocean together, so the individual soul being (in essence) the same as the universal soul becomes completely merged into that (universal soul) and then transcends all destructions by reason of this absorption into the Self which is Existence, Intelligence and Bliss. He who realizing this, walks in the path of complete renunciation, for him there are no Laws Mandatory or prohibitory.He who, having attained the supreme state of the self-knowing entity and having realized the Self pervading all the phenomenal world both within and without, attains by means of the predominance of sattva quality, the principle of righteousness, immortal existence, and Self-luminousness, and (so) walks in the path of complete renunciation; for him there are no laws mandatory or prohibitory.He for who there is nothing to be done and nothing not to be done and no noting of agency who has realized the state of emancipation, while in this life; whose worldly associations are completely destroyed as his clothes and who standing (as it were) apart from the bod realizes (in himself the Ocean of Supreme Bliss) and walks in the path of complete renunciation; for him there are no laws, mandatory or prohibitory.Whence and who am I? What thing art thou and what is this world that is dreamlike? Self and Self alone, the perfect illuminating truth which is infinite as space, is worth knowing, the Self which is one Eternal Bliss, uniform, having no “within” or “without”. He who realizing all this, walks in the path of complete renunciation, for him there are no laws, mandatory or prohibitory.
