Tripura rahasyam – Jnanakanda
This volume is a faithful English translation of all the 2163 verses of the “Jnanakanda” of Tripura rahasyam (alongside the Original Sanskrit) dealing with Transcendental consciousness.
In Vedantic tradition, a steadily self-aware Sadguru imparts knowledge about inner perception, enabling the discipline to share the same state, the same beatitude. For his part, the discipline be eager, full of zeal to know, and have unqualified faith in the guru’s guidance.
We find expressions of this unbroken guru-disciple tradition in Yogavaasishta, where knowledge of the self was imparted by Sri Vasishta to Sri Rama; in the Bhagavad Gita, by Sri Krishna to Arjun, and in this sacred work to Sri Parasurama by Sri Dattatreya.
Dattatreya takes Parasurama step by step from ignorance born of identification with the body to sahaja samadhi cheifly through stories and parables, thereby making simple what is usually regarded as difficult of comprehension, ebabling anyone to enquire into the true nature of the I consciousness and abide naturally as that.
