Sri Sri Krishna Premi Swamigal - Vaishnava Samhita
Adishankara Charithram Vol. I, Book 1 , Chapter 7 Shloka 1 to 6
Nirgunancha Niraakaaram Shakshwatam Shivam Achyutam
Satyam Gnyaanam Param Brahma Sarva Kaarana Kaaranam
The Supreme Absolute Being, devoid of attributes and form, Immortal and Eternal, and never loosening. Its grip over the dear ones and the embodiment of eternal truth and wisdom, is the root cause of all existence.
Sashaktikam Param Brahma Paramatmeti Geeyate
Tasya Maaya Parashaktih Prakritih Trigunatmika
The Absolute Being wielding Absolute Power is deemed as the Supreme Soul. Prakriti (Inert Nature) endowed with three modes (Satva, Rajas and Tamas) is the Divine power of the Supreme Being which exists as Maya (Divine Illusion).
Sa Upadhikam Param Brahma Jeeva Ityabhidhiyate
Mahakasho Yatha Loke Kumbheshu Paridrushyate
The Supreme Being, which wears the Upadhi is called Jiva. It is seen, as the eternal sky is seen inside pots as reflected image.
Prakritih Purushaschapi Vaasudevo Hee Naparah
Tasmad Advaitamevaasti Neha Naanaasti Kinchana
Prakriti and Jiva are one and the same as Lord Vasudeva, that is they are integral parts of Lord Vasudeva. Hence there remains only Monism or Adwaita. There are not many different existences.
Yada Swarupagnyanena Dwaitamoho Vinashyati
Tadaa Sadyo Vimuktah Syatsarva Samsara Bandhanaat
The Jiva becomes liberated from all worldy bonds when he obtains true wisdom of his form and when the delusion of his mind regarding dual existence is destroyed.
Aparoksha Gnyanameva Paramam Moksha Sadhanam
Vaasudeva Para Bhakti Tasya Sadhanamuchyate
Knowledge of this concealed truth is the real device for achieving liberation. Unflinching devotion to Lord Vasudeva is the tool for obtaining such divine wisdom.
