harrowing carrions of syllogism lyrics – rudra

mind creates a subjective notional world
limited by knowledge we see what we want to see
the mind can’t see beyond its thought constructs
the lack of a valid pramana leads to self-deception
destroy your world by seeing yourself as the essence of the universe

[solo vinod]

like the eye which can’t see itself, the i can’t see the inner i
without shabda, you can’t know your self
without shruti, you can’t see your self
man*buddhyahankaracittani naham
na ca vyomabhumir na tejo na vayu
cidanandarupa shivoham shivoham*

destroy your world by seeing yourself as the essence of the universe
like clay in the pot, see yourself as the essence of the universe

[solo vinod]

vain reasoning is a bottomless pit
inflates the non-self with conceit

shabda alone leads the mind beyond the limit of thoughts
to the self which is beyond logic and reason
aham nirvikalpo nirakararupa
vibhutvacca sarvatra sarvendriyanam
na casangato naiva na muktirna bandha
cidanandarupa shivoham shivoham*

[*nirvana shatkam]
