[...] When gold has been known, once how can (further) reflection (bhavanā) serve as a means (to know it better)? Once Śiva's self-established nature has been known through firm realisation by (some) means of knowledge applied once, be it the scripture or the teacher's words, (no further) means or contemplation serves any purpose in any circumstance”.
