knower having checked the soul, by itself, from both the vibratory
activities of merit and demerit, and being absorbed in (pure) conation and
knowledge, by giving up desire for other (substances apart from the soul)
and having renounced all attachment (to worldly possessions) contemplates
upon the (pure) soul by the soul, and never (contemplates upon) Karmas and
quasi-karmas, (he) meditates upon its oneness.
The means of
checking the inflow is self-absorption only. A right knower should
withdraw his attention both from good and bad actions. Becoming
desirables and non-attached, he should calm contemplate upon the pure
nature of his soul.

Contemplating upon the pure soul, full of (right) conation and knowledge,
and not attentive to the non-self such (soul) liberated from Karmas, very
soon realizes the soul itself.
A right knowing
saint practices self-absorption by concentrating his attention on the pure
attributes of his soul. By constant practice, he advances in the
spiritual stages. If he ascends by the destructive ladder, and acquires
pure concentration (Shukla Dhyana) he is rid of the four destructive
Karmas within one huhurta, 48 minutes, and becomes an Omniscient

197. As by
hearing a lecture one comes to know that he has not seen, (one) knows an
unseen from as if by visualization, so is the soul described and
understood as if (it, was) seen and known.
The soul is
immaterial and cannot be known through any of the five senses; but it can
be properly understood and grasped by the mind, if its nature is properly
described from different points of view. The differential of soul is
consciousness, which can always be realized by us. That which has
consciousness is soul. I have consciousness and therefore I am soul. I
feel pain and pleasure throughout the whole of my body, therefore I am in
size according to my body. Thus should a right believer visualise his
soul in his own body as a substance without any colour or other material
qualities possessed of full consciousness, peace and happiness, free from
anger and other impure thoughts. By continuous practice of visualization
be can gain fixity in the idea of soul. Then he will be able to grasp his
own pure self quite clearly. Whenever his attention will concentrate
itself fully on this idea of the soul, there will be self-realisation.

present time what saint (is there who) knowing the (reality of) substances
can any ï¿½this is its formï¿½ as if he had an ocular vision of what can be
known only by inferential knowledge.
Only omniscient can
directly see the immaterial soul. Neither visual, nor metal knowledge,
though they are somewhat direct, can see the soul. The saints and others
with sensitive and scriptural knowledge can know it and realise it
indirectly through these two kinds of knowledge. Although self-realisation
is not direct realisation of self like that of omniscient, yet it is clear
enough. It is almost direct. When thought activity is attentive
constantly to self-realisation, the attention gives up functioning through
the mind and the senses. At that time thinking and wavering is stopped.
Attention is merged in its own master, the soul. A right believer, though
not omniscient, yet realises the soul as it is.

The causes of (attachment etc.,) are said by the all-seeing to be the
manifest operation of (Karmas). (They are) wrong belief, wrong knowledge,
vow-lessness and soulï¿½s vibratory activity.
non-existence of these causes certainly results the checking of
thought-inflow in a knowing soul. In the absence of thought-inflow,
results the checking (of the inflow) of Karmic matter also, and by the
non-existence of Karmic-inflow is caused the checking of Quasi-Karmic
matter also. And by the checking of Quasi-karmic matter, there results
the checking of the cycle of transmigration.
When by the
constant practice of self-analysis, the soulï¿½s power and thought-activity
is no purified that it is capable of causing the subsidence of
wrong-belief Karma and of error-feeding passion-Karmas, a person becomes a
right believer. His knowledge becomes right knowledge. A right believer
even in the fourth stage of vowless right belief, is capable of checking
all those thought-activities which are causes of the inflow and bondage of
such strong Karmas as wrong belief, error-feeding-passions. A
right-believer will never be born in inferior bodies.
generally be born as a celestial or a human being till his mundane
wanderings are totally exhausted. He will be gradually advancing in self-realisation.
And through self-realisation be will not take long to attain a suitable
body for the practice of pure concentration in order to destroy all Karmas
and to be liberated finally and become a perfect soul.
