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 4.21.27

मुक्तौ तु नान्यथा प्राप्तिरिति भावितचेतसः ।
स्वां दृष्टिं प्रविवृण्वन्ति स्वैरेव नियमभ्रमैः ॥ २७ ॥

muktau tu nānyathā prāptiriti bhāvitacetasaḥ |
svāṃ dṛṣṭiṃ pravivṛṇvanti svaireva niyamabhramaiḥ || 27 ||

But that there is no other way to the salvation of the supposed mind (than by these means), is an ipse dixit of the Vedanta, and an assumed dogma (kalpitaniyama) as those of other schools.
