Bhikshuka Upanishad on Paramahamsa


Paramahamsa live clothed or naked at the foot of trees, in ruined houses, or in burning grounds. With them, there are no dualities as dharma and adharma, gain and loss, and purity and impurity. They look upon gold and stone and clod of earth with the same eye (of indifference), live on alms, begging from all without any distinction of caste and look upon everything as Atma alone.

Being as nature made them, being free from the sense of duality and from covetousness, being engaged in pure contemplation, they meditate on Atma.

Having advanced far in the path of Brahman, and being pure in mind, they quit this body through the methods prescribed for Paramahamsa Sannyasins.
