Nirvana Satkam

॥ निर्वाण षटकम्॥

मनोबुद्ध्यहङ्कार चित्तानि नाहं

 

न च श्रोत्रजिह्वे न च घ्राणनेत्रे ।

 

न च व्योम भूमिर्न तेजो न वायुः

 

चिदानन्दरूपः शिवोऽहम् शिवोऽहम् ॥१॥

I am neither the mind, nor the intellect, nor the ego, nor the mind-stuff ;
I am neither the body, nor the changes of the body ;
I am neither the senses of hearing, taste, smell, or sight,
Nor am I the ether, the earth, the fire, the air ;
I am Existence Absolute, Knowledge Absolute, Bliss Absolute—
I am He, I am He. (Shivoham, Shivoham).

न च प्राणसंज्ञो न वै पञ्चवायु


न वा सप्तधातुः न वा पञ्चकोशः ।


न वाक्पाणिपादं न चोपस्थपायु


चिदानन्दरूपः शिवोऽहम् शिवोऽहम् ॥२॥

I am neither the Prâna, nor the five vital airs ;
I am neither the materials of the body, nor the five sheaths ;
Neither am I the organs of action, nor object of the senses ;
I am Existence Absolute, Knowledge Absolute, Bliss Absolute—
I am He, I am He. (Shivoham, Shivoham).

न मे द्वेषरागौ न मे लोभमोहौ

 

मदो नैव मे नैव मात्सर्यभावः ।

 

न धर्मो न चार्थो न कामो न मोक्षः

 

चिदानन्दरूपः शिवोऽहम् शिवोऽहम् ॥३॥

 

I have neither aversion nor attachment, neither greed nor delusion;
Neither egotism nor envy, neither Dharma nor Moksha;
I am neither desire nor objects of desire ;
I am Existence Absolute, Knowledge Absolute, Bliss Absolute—
I am He, I am He. (Shivoham, Shivoham).

न पुण्यं न पापं न सौख्यं न दुःखं

 

न मन्त्रो न तीर्थो न वेदो न यज्ञ ।

 

अहं भोजनं नैव भोज्यं न भोक्ता

 

चिदानन्दरूपः शिवोऽहम् शिवोऽहम् ॥४॥

I am neither sin nor virtue, neither pleasure nor pain ;
Nor temple nor worship, nor pilgrimage nor scriptures,
Neither the act of enjoying, the enjoyable nor the enjoyer ;
I am Existence Absolute, Knowledge Absolute, Bliss Absolute—
I am He, I am He. (Shivoham, Shivoham).

न मृत्युर्न शङ्का न मे जातिभेदः

न बन्धुर्न मित्रं गुरुर्नैव शिष्यं

 

चिदानन्दरूपः शिवोऽहम् शिवोऽहम् ॥५॥

I have neither death nor fear of death, nor caste ;
Nor was I ever born, nor had I parents, friends, and relations ;
I have neither Guru, nor disciple ;
I am Existence Absolute, Knowledge Absolute, Bliss Absolute—
I am He, I am He. (Shivoham, Shivoham).

अहं निर्विकल्पो निराकाररूपो

 

विभुत्वाच्च सर्वत्र सर्वेन्द्रियाणाम् ।

 

न चासङ्गतं नैव मुक्तिर्न मेयः

 

चिदानन्दरूपः शिवोऽहम् शिवोऽहम् ॥६॥

I am untouched by the senses, I am neither Mukti nor knowable ;
I am without form, without limit, beyond space, beyond time ;
I am in everything ; I am the basis of the universe ; everywhere am I.
I am Existence Absolute, Knowledge Absolute, Bliss Absolute—
I am He, I am He. (Shivoham, Shivoham).
