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 7.39.22

रूपालोकमनस्कारबुद्धयहन्तादयः परे ।
स्वरूपभूताः सलिले द्रवत्वमिव खात्मकाः ॥ २२ ॥

rūpālokamanaskārabuddhayahantādayaḥ pare |
svarūpabhūtāḥ salile dravatvamiva khātmakāḥ || 22 ||

Hence visual sight and sensations, mental thought and understanding, consciousness of ego or self, and all other properties belonging to intellectual man, are the original types of the transcendent spirit, as fluidity is immanent in water. All these intellectual and spiritual properties are of an airy or vacuous nature.
