Yoga Vasistha [sanskrit]

223,437 words | ISBN-10: 8171101519

The Sanskrit edition of the Yoga-vasistha including English translation and grammatical analysis. The Yogavasistha is a Hindu spiritual text written by Valmiki (who also authored the Ramayana) dealing with the philosophical topics from the Advaita-vedanta school. Chronologically it precedes the Ramayana.

Verse 3.81.22

शुद्धसंवेदनाकाशरूपस्य परमाणुना ।
शोभते नहि साम्योक्तिर्मेरुसर्षपयोरिव ॥ २२ ॥

śuddhasaṃvedanākāśarūpasya paramāṇunā |
śobhate nahi sāmyoktirmerusarṣapayoriva || 22 ||

The comparison of the vast vacuity of divine understanding with a particle of air (as it is made by the minister), is not an exact simile. It is as a comparison of a mountain with a mustard seed, which is absurd.
