Just as the sun is the cause for activity in the world, the Self, which, like space,
is free of all conditioning adjuncts, is the cause for the activity of the mind, the
sense organs, and the body. I am that Self, whose nature is timeless awareness.

The reflection of a face seen in a mirror is not a real object separate from the
face. Similarly, the jva also, is but a reflection of consciousness seen in the
intellects. I am that Self, whose nature is timeless awareness. (3)

Itself free from the mind and sense organs, the Self is the mind of the mind and eye of

That which is One shines of its own accord for the one whose mind is pure.
Even though it is self-effulgent, it appears as though many and diverse in the

Just as the sun, who is the light for many eyes, does not light up the objects to be

one by one. I am that Self, whose nature is timeless awareness. (7)

Just as the eye perceives form which is illumined by the sun, not unillumined form; in
the same manner, Vivasvan (the ruling deity of the eyes) who is one, illumined by the
Self, illumines the eyes. I am that Self, whose nature is timeless awareness. (8)

Just as in the presence of a conditioning adjunct pure crystals appear differently;
similarly, in the presence of different minds, You also appear differently. Just as

moving here. (12)
