[The Dawning of the Wrathful Deities, from the Eight to the Fourteenth Day] [Introduction] Now the manner of the dawning of the Wrathful Deities is to be shown.

The Tibetan Book of the Dead - Book I

In the above Bardo of the Peaceful [Deities} there were seven stages of ambuscade. The setting-face-to-face at each stage should have [caused the deceased] to recognize either at one or another [stage] and to have been liberated. Multitudes will be liberated by that recognition; [and] although multitudes obtain liberation in that manner, the number of sentient beings being great, evil karma powerful, obscurations dense, propensities o too long standing, the Wheel of Ignorance and Illusion becometh neither exhausted nor accelerated. This is the Bardo of the Wrathful Deities; and, they being influenced by fear, terror, and awe, recognition becometh more difficult.

If at this stage one do not meet with this kind of teaching, one's hearing [of religious lore] -- although it be like an ocean [in its vastness] -- is of no avail. Naïve Inspirations. Sankya - The Sacred Doctrine. It is strange that the Sankhya of Kapila, the primary teacher of this planet is relevant even today.

Sankya - The Sacred Doctrine

It only proves that the truth, the need to realise it and the way to reach it have remained the same! If it is the human tendency to keep forgetting, it is the nature of the divine to keep reminding. The recapitulation of the one reality is initiated through a series of reminders, served by the Higher Ones who descend for this purpose, till the human beings ascend unto their divine nature. Or, till remembrance becomes a natural process. As such, Kapila was the first one to descend to give out the way of systematised wisdom to ascend. We have to bear in mind that this age is new to us and not to itself. The way to truth is offered in many ways! But, the paths and the methodologies can have their place only when they spring forth on the basis of the undercurrent of universality. The composer has deftly avoided baffling the readers with jargons.

The Heart of Awareness - The Ashtavakra Gita

The Self 2. Translator's Introduction: The Mystery of Awareness I remember the moment clearly. I had escaped from my sisters, over the rocks and around the point. There was no other living creature. As I squatted there, watching the reflection of the wind in the unrippled pool, hearing its exhilaration high above me in the bright emptiness of the sky, I became aware for the first time of awareness itself. I had no name for it, but I could almost feel it, as if it had substance, like the water in the rock pool, or breath, like the shouting wind.

I saw that I was entirely by myself in a boundless ocean of awareness. In the same instant I understood that awareness is the single mystery of life, that it enfolds all other mysteries, even the secret of the separate self. From that moment I was indelibly astonished, and I knew that all my life I would be pinching myself and asking, What is awareness? My child, you can talk about holy books all you like.

Sri Brahma-samhita

Krsna who is known as Govinda is the Supreme Godhead. Krsna is the exalted Supreme entity having His eternal name, eternal form, eternal attribution and eternal pastimes. The very intensely blended entity of eternal presence of felicitous cognition is the charming targeted holding or transcendental icon.

Hymns of the Samaveda

Griffith The Samaveda, or Veda of Holy Songs, third in the usual order of enumeration of the three Vedas, ranks next in sanctity and liturgical importance to the Rgveda or Veda of Recited praise. Its Sanhita, or metrical portion, consists chiefly of hymns to be chanted by the Udgatar priests at the performance of those important sacrifices in which the juice of the Soma plant, clarified and mixed with milk and other ingredients, was offered in libation to various deities. There is no clue to the date of the compilation of the Samaveda Hymns, nor has the compiler's name been handed down to us.

There are three recensions of the text of the Samaveda Sanhita, the Kauthuma Sakha or recension is current in Guzerat, the Jaiminiya in the Carnatic, and the Ranayaniya in the Mahratta country. I repeat the expression of my obligations to those scholars whose works assisted me in my translation of the Hymns of the Rgveda. Om. 1. Atharva Veda Index.
