Chapter 5

Verses 1/32

1. The word Om is like the sky,
it is not the discernment of the essence of high or low.
How can there be enunciation of the point of the word Om
which annuls the manifestation of the unmanifest?

2. The srutis – such as “That thou art” –
prove to thee thou art indeed “That”
devoid of adjuncts and the same in all.
Why dost thou, who art the identity in all,
grieve in thy heart?

3. If thou art identity in all,
if thou art devoid of above and below, within and without
and of even the sense of unity, then –
Why dost thou, who art the identity in all,
grieve in thy heart?

4. There is no discrimination of rules and precepts there
is no cause or effect.
That which is the identity in all
is without words and the collection of words.
Why dost thou, who art the identity in all,
grieve in thy heart?

5. There is no knowledge or ignorance
and no practice of concentration.
There is no space and the absence of space
and no practice of concentration.
