Vivekachudamani – Food for Thought

A disease does not leave off if one simply utter the name of the medicine, withouttaking it; (similarly) without direct realization one cannot be liberated by the mere utterance of the word Brahman.The Scriptures consisting of many words are a dense forest which merely causes the mind to ramble. Hence men of wisdom should earnestly set about knowing the true nature of the Self.As a treasure hidden underground requires (for its extraction) competent instruction, excavation, the removal of stones and other such things lying above it and (finally) grasping, but never comes out by being (merely) called out by name, so the transparent Truth of the self, which is hidden by Maya and its effects, is to be attained through the instructions of a knower of Brahman, followed by reflection, meditation and so forth, but not through perverted arguments.Vivekachudamani of Adi Shankaracharya You may also like to readDownload Vivekachudamani in English
