A description of the experience
5: Four Ways to Dissolution
Ashtavakra said: 5.1 You are immaculate, touched by nothing. What is there to renounce? The mind is complex—let it go. Know the peace of dissolution.
5.2 The universe arises from you like foam from the sea. Know yourself as One. Enter the peace of dissolution.
5.3 Like an imagined snake in a rope the universe appears to exist in the immaculate Self but does not. Seeing this you know: “There is nothing to dissolve.”
5.4 You are perfect, changeless, through misery and happiness, hope and despair, life and death. This is the state of dissolution.
