Ribhu Gita

Chapter 33

1. Ribhu: I tell you, the supreme Brahma alone is. This world is ungenerated. I am only the state of Being and Bliss. This world is ungenerated.

2. I am only the self, the supreme Brahma, not the world that is seen as separate. I am only the state of Being and Bliss. This world is ungenerated.

3. I am only the state of Being and Bliss. I am the embodiment of the state of Awareness and Bliss. I alone am. I alone am, the only one. I alone am higher than the highest.

4. Being-consciousness-Bliss, the one am I, indeed, Brahma alone. I am, ever resplendent. Such a form from wherever, is unreal.

5. ‘You’ – this much is the supreme Brahma, the form full of Consciousness and Bliss. The form of Consciousness, the expanse of consciousness; consciousness alone is the supreme joy.

6. I am only the Self, not the unreal. I am the established, the supreme Guru. There is no time. There is no world either, only erroneous conception.

7. I alone am the supreme Brahma. I alone am the ever-existent Siva. I am only pure Awareness, the experience of pure serenity.

8. I am only nondual Bliss. I am inexhaustible, I am the great one. All is always only Brahma. All is only blemishless Brahma.

9. All is Brahma and naught else. All is Brahma, the sentient. I am of the form of the all-illuminating. I am indeed the mind adorable to all.

10. I shine alone. I am without the attained and the unattained. I am of the form of the indweller of all, with the characteristic of the all-witnessing.

11. It is certain that I am of the form of quiescence, inquiry and joy. I am the supreme Self, the transcendental Light, the beyond and bereft of any other.

12. I am of the nature of the all-full. I am the infallible and the supreme self. I am of the nature of the Veda and the conclusion of all the scriptures.

13. I am of the nature of the Bliss of the world, the definition of the essential happiness. All is indeed Brahma. There is no world. Brahma is the cause of all.

14. All is only Brahma, there is nothing purposeless. All is Brahma, itself the best. I am the ever decayless. I am the eternal, bestower of auspiciousness to all.

15. I am the light of Reality and knowledge. I am the embodiment of the highest knowledge. I shine as the fourth and other than the fourth state. I am bereft of accomplishments, non-accomplishments and the like.

16. All is Brahma always. All is Brahma, ceaselessly. All is Brahma, the space of consciousness, the eternal Brahma, the taintless.

17. All is Brahma, transcending qualities. All is just Brahma. All is only Brahma - achieve this certitude always.

18. Brahma is everything - be of this conviction always. All is Brahma - with this certainty, be joyous.

19. All is always Brahma - being and nonbeing are Consciousness only. There is no scope for arguments about duality or nonduality here.

20. I am only absolute knowledge. It is certain that all is Brahma. I am He, more mysterious than the most mysterious. I am above qualities and without a second.

21. Investigate into the comparisons and contrasts, and actions and inactions of things. I am of the form of Being-Awareness-Bliss. This world is ungenereated.

22. Brahma alone is all of this. This world is expanse of consciousness. Brahma alone is the supreme bliss, the Lord, akin to all-pervasive space.

23. Brahma is indeed Existence-Awareness-Bliss, unapproachable by speech. Brahma alone is all of this. Some say it is, some say it is not.

24. Even an iota of Bliss, is real and unreal as well. Brahma alone is all this- always just real, indeed.

41. Brahma alone is of the form of Being-Awareness, of the nature of the seat of the delusion. Brahma is indeed Being-Awareness-Bliss. All is naught, non-existent for me.

42. Brahma is the beyond the expression of words, the embodiment of Being-Awareness-Bliss. I am the form of Being-Awareness-Bliss. This world is never generated. 43. Brahma alone is this, always real, eternally free and taintless. Brahma is indeed Being-Awareness-Bliss, the only one, ever joyous.

44. Brahma is indeed Being-Awareness-Bliss, more perfect than the most perfect and the great. Brahma is indeed Being-Awareness-Bliss, the all-pervading Lord.

It is the remover of all forms of sorrow and the giver of complete knowledge, bringing about perennial joy; truly, the giver of peace and self-control.

51. One whose heart is like the honey-bee constantly engaged in the enjoyment of the lotus feet of the Great Lord, the killer of Death – at whose stainless and divine feet celestials in multitudes bow in veneration, and who is the sole cause of creation – (he) shall become worthy of His grace.
