Sanatsujatha Paramarshi said, “I consider that man to be a brahman who not only knows the tattva of Paramātmā but also elucidates the Vedas in a faithful and accurate manner and who’s doubts have been eradicated and is competent to set aside all the doubts of others as well.
There is no need to travel in search of this ātmā in the directions of east, south, west or north and therefore, where does the question arise of travelling to either the eight directions or any corner of this universe? Similarly there is no need to go in search of it in a land that is obscure.
One should not search for the ātmā in matters that are unrelated to IT and also should not search for it in the words of the Vedas but instead should sit for tapas and attain sakshatkara with the Supreme Being.
One should not put in any effort to indulge the sensory organs and instead should contemplate and immerse oneself in Paramātmā. One should not endeavour through the mind either. O King! You also contemplate and immerse yourself in that illustrious shining Paramaeshwar who resides in your heartbeat through your intelligence.
One does not become a muni by observing silence or by staying in the forest. The one who knows and realizes the form of his ātmā is to be called an exalted muni.
A jnanipurush is called viyaakaran because he reveals the different meanings and interpretations. Brahma is the main cause for all the meanings to manifest and hence, He is the first erudite scholar. The learned ones also explain and narrate these meanings similarly and are also called as erudite scholars.
A yogi who sees the discernible worlds in the universe will call all those worlds as true and real. But one who is established in the satyaswaroopa Paramātmā at all times is the omniscient exalted brahman.
Hey King! A man can attain the sakshatkara with Paramātmā if the aforesaid dharma and others and the study of the procedures of the Vedas is also followed with dedication. I am telling you this based on my mental acumen”.
