Soundarya Lahari - Part 43


It is from that calm nirvikAra (changeless) state of the First Principle that we have all come to this jIva state with a mind and all its runaway associates called the senses.   Only when we merge in that ShAnti (Peace) back again it may be said that we have reached our true state and transcended the MAyA effect, the bondage of samsAra. That blissful state of mokshha is so calm and peaceful because it is now the same as being Brahman, which naturally, is calm and actionless without exhibiting its latent  Shakti. In our daily life we may observe that if somebody is totally inactive, unresponsive and unaffected by anything, we refer to him jocularly (at least in the Tamil world) as ‘para-brahmam’ !
