The Second Sutra


You are the one observer of all, and in reality always free.

Your bondage is this – you see the other, not yourself, as the observer and doer; thus has the black snake of ego bitten you.

I am not the doer.

Drink this divine nectar of fruit and be happy.

I am the one pure awareness, thus I have burnt the forest of your ignorance with this fire of certainty.

Being beyond sorrow, be happy.

You are that bliss, that ultimate bliss within which this imaginary world is projected, like a snake and a rope.

Knowing this, wonder happily.

He who considers himself free is free, and he who considers himself bound is bound, because in this world the proverb is true, “As you think, so you are.”

The soul is the witness, all pervading one, free consciousness; free from doing, absolutely alone, non-attached, desireless, peaceful.

Because of illusion, it looks like the world.

I am an individually projected life.

Drop this illusion and also this feeling of inner and outer, and awaken in the thought that you are the unchanging, conscious, and non-dual soul.
