Ribhu Gita Teachings


Like bubbles arising on the waters of the ocean, gods and men and beasts of the phenomenal world arose, and will arise again and again, on the water of the mass of solid Bliss (Ghana ananda) – (Shiva). There is no worldly misery for those who, through their experience, perceive all this arising out of the waves of delusion clearly as myself.

Because of delusion, people do not realize Hara to be known as the cause of every little thing and as the cause of every being and also as the boundless cause of even greater dissolution. Destruction of mundane misery results when the Presence of Shiva shines in the reflecting pool of the recesses of the space of the heart.

Those who know do not offer worship by means of an endless parade of symbolism and with a mind set on rituals.

Those who know, however, worship inwardly, in abstract meditation, their mind attuned to the prescribed injunctions.

Ribhu Gita - Dialogue between Sage Ribhu and Sage Nidagha - It is believed that Sage Ribhu received the knowledge directly from Shiva.
