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 4.21.29

मुक्तौ तु नान्यथा प्राप्तिरिति भावितचेतसः ।
स्वां दृष्टिं प्रविवृण्वन्ति स्वैरेव नियमभ्रमैः ॥ २९ ॥

muktau tu nānyathā prāptiriti bhāvitacetasaḥ |
svāṃ dṛṣṭiṃ pravivṛṇvanti svaireva niyamabhramaiḥ || 29 ||

Thus all sects give out their own views, in the false rules they have adopted for the salvation of their supposed minds; and assert that there is no other way to it, beside what is laid down by them.
