ATMABODHA ---- SELF -KNOWLEDGE verses by Shankara

  The 'Jiva'/individual free from impurities, being heated in the fire of knowledge kindled by hearing and so on, shines of itself like gold.

--- The self, the Sun of Knowledge that rises in the sky of the heart, destroys the darkness of the ignorance, pervades and sustains all and shines and makes everything to shine.
--- He who renouncing all activities, who is free of all the limitations of time, space and direction, worships his own Atman/self which is present everywhere, which is the destroyer of heat and cold, which is Bliss-Eternal and stainless, becomes All-knowing and All-pervading and attains thereafter Immortality.
Translated by Swami Chinmayananda , chinmaya mission .Kolkata
