A description of the experience
7: Nature of Self-Realization
Janaka said: 7.1 In me, the shoreless ocean, the ark of universe drifts here and there on the winds of its nature. I am not impatient.
7.2 In me, the shoreless ocean, let the waves of the universe rise and fall as they will. I am neither enhanced nor diminished.
7.3 In me, the shoreless ocean, the universe is imagined. I am still and formless. In this alone I abide.
7.4 The Self is not in objects, nor are objects in the pure and infinite Self. The Self is tranquil, free of attachment and desire. In this alone I abide.
7.5 I am Awareness alone. The world is passing show. How can thoughts arise of acceptance or rejection? And where?
