Skanda Upanishad Teachings




Bound by husk, it is paddy; freed from husk, it is rice. In like manner Jiva is bound by Karma. If karma perishes, Jiva is Sadashiva. So long as he is bound by the bonds of karma, he is Jiva. If freed from its bonds, then he is Sadasiva.

The heart of Vishnu is Shiva. The heart of Shiva is Vishnu. As I see no difference between these two, therefore to me are prosperity and life. There is no difference between Shiva and Vishnu.

To see oneself as not different from Him (Supreme Being) is jnana or wisdom.

To make the mind free from sensual objects is dhyana and giving up of the stains of the mind is Snana.
