Steady Wisdom: 108 Verses On Changing My Thinking
That one without a second, of the nature of consciousness, space-like, transcendent, ever-shining, unborn, indestructible, taintless, omnipresent—I am that. I am ever-free. OM.
-Upadesha Sahasri 10:1 (Metrical)
I am consciousness, the self-evident reality, one without a second. Nothing other than me exists, so there is nothing to limit me, there is nothing to taint me. Like all-pervasive space is untouched and undivided by the objects it accommodates, I am untouched and undivided by the illusory objects that appear in me.
Because I am existence itself, I was never born, for there is never a time when existence did not exist. Because I was never born, I am not subject to death (destruction). I am ever-free because I was never bound. OM.
