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 3.81.23

मायाकलापिनाणुत्वं निर्माय परमात्मनि ।
हेम्नीव कटकत्वेन नानात्र समता भवेत् ॥ २३ ॥

māyākalāpināṇutvaṃ nirmāya paramātmani |
hemnīva kaṭakatvena nānātra samatā bhavet || 23 ||

The minuteness which is attributed to it (in the veda), is as false as the attribution of different colours to the plumage of the peacock, and of jewellery to gold, which can not be applicable to the spirit.
