Swethāranyeswar offers salutations to Sri Shuka Paramarshi and says, ” O All-knowing One! I am speechless. I am in a state of joy just from hearing your words. It is indeed the greatest privilege to hear the innermost secrets of the Supreme Self from You. I am eternally grateful and thankful to You. I beseech You to guide me to completely become immersed and absorbed into the Supreme Self.”
Sri Shuka Paramarshi says,” Child, I have explained to you the importance of the self-luminous aksharas or alphabets, the science of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet and how the knowledge and understanding of the self-luminous akshara will help a created being to follow his or its assigned path and duty. A created being should spend considerable time pondering over his or its existence and the meaning of existence. Is it light? Is it sound? Is it matter? Is existence simple in its structure or is it complex? What makes up existence? What is existence? How and what are the parameters to identify existence?
The answer to all lies in the knowledge of the science of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet. It is this understanding and knowledge of the science of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet that has led the Great Rshis, Great Gurus, Masters and Saints and those venerable ones to become absorbed into the Supreme Self.
This has to be known, realized and understood through the various paths, sadhana and anustana prescribed such as yagna, yaga, dhana, dharma, rituals, mantra sadhana, japa, dhyana, tapa and others. As all of creation and the differentials of light, sound, matter, time, space, movement, ego, mind, intellect, five-fold attributes, five-fold elements and others lies within the “body” or manifested or Vyakta state of the self-luminous akshara or alphabet, each and every created being will follow various combinations of paths, sadhana and anustana to eventually become steadfast in the assigned path as per the self-luminous akshara or alphabet in whose form and shape he or it has been created. This can be revealed only by the self-luminous akshara or alphabet of the created being as its inherent nature is Aksharam.”
