492: Play of Sakti-Siva Infuses Divine Spirit
Out of Sakti-Siva Play
And Jiva who was in pure Kevala state
Of Turiya quiescence
Was freed and consigned to the folds of Maya,
And the Lord then entered Jiva’s thought
And suffused his being with Divine Spirit.
493: The Three Categories From Ten Classes
Vignanars true are of groups four
Pralayakalas are of three;
Sakalars below are another three
Thus are Jivas grouped, ten in all.
494: The Four Classes of Vijnars
Vijnanakalars are of classes four;
Those who are in Kevala (Anava) state,
Next are those who are Self-realised;
Those who reached the state of Eight Vidyeswaras,
And finally are those who rank as the Seven Crores of Manthra Nayakas;
Those who are of Egoity Impure rid
Are the truly realised beings (no more are they Jivas).
495: The Three Classes of Pralaya Kalas
Of the Pralayakalars three,
Are those who Mukti attained;
Another, by malas twine (Egoity and Karma) bound;
Yet another, the Rudras Hundred and Eight;
The Sakalas have all malas three.
496: The Three Classes of Sakalas
Sakalas three are:
Those who have attained Siddhis miraculous,
Those who have attained Mukti (Jivan)
Those who have attained neither
–All powerless to conquer Malas three
And in sound and other senses immersed.
497: Stages of Attainment in Mala Riddance
They who are of five malas hard rid,
Themselves Siva become;
They blemishless become,
They become Siddhas,
Attain state of Mukti Finale,
They uproot Jiva’s bondage,
End cycle of births;
They alone are,
Who truth of peerless Tattvas realised.
498: Nine Gradations of Jivas
Vijnanakalas are of gradations three;
Those who in quiescent Anava alone abides; (the Pralayakala among Vijnanas)
So are Pralayakalas of gradations three;
And Sakalas too;
Thus are there nine classes of Jivas,
Evolving in gradations separate.
499: How Sakalas Among Vijnanakalas Attain Siva-State
Vijnanakalas may by karma assume form corporeal;
But by performing holy deeds,
Acquire Celestial frame
And higher Jnana Form;
And Constant striving thus,
Gain wisdom perennial
And in the end Siva Himself become.
500: How Jivas Reach Siva
Rid themselves of Anava entire
And consciousness lost of all Jiva memory,
They Bindu and Nada become,
The highest heavenly goal
Of one-ness with Siva Tattva;
Albeit all three, Sakala and the rest of yore possessed,
The primal impurities triple,
Anava, Maya and Karma.
