Atma Bhoda 6-10 — Atma Bhoda 6-10


 

6. This world, troubled by desires, aversions, and other poisons, is like an image in a dream.  For as long as the dream lasts, the image appears to be real; but on awakening it vanishes.

 

7. The world appears real, just as an oyster shell appears to be silver, but only for so long as Brahman, the ultimate reality, the one without a second, remains unknown.

 

8. Brahman, which is being, truth and intelligence, comprehends every living and inanimate thing within itself, penetrating and permeating all like a thread which holds beads together.

 

9. The supreme being appears manifold because of diverse superimpositions; but once these adventitious attributes are removed, its inherent oneness shines forth.

 

10. In consequence of these diverse attributes, a variety of concepts and limitations are superimposed onto Atman, just as a variety of tastes and colors are attributed to water.

………………………………………………..

 

6. Este mundo, afligido por deseos, aversiones y otros venenos, es como una imagen que aparece en un sueño. Mientras el sueño dura la imagen parece ser real, pero al despertar se desvanece.

 

7. El mundo aparece como real, lo mismo que la concha de una ostra parece ser de plata, pero ello es así mientras Brahman, la realidad última, el uno sin segundo, permanece desconocido.

 

8. Brahman, que es ser, verdad e inteligencia, comprehende todo lo viviente o inanimado dentro de sí, permeando y penetrándolo como un hilo que mantiene las cuentas juntas.

 

9. El ser supremo aparece como múltiple debido a superposiciones diversas, pero una vez que estos atributos adventicios desaparecen, su unidad inherente brilla de por sí.

 

10. Como consecuencia de estos diversos atributos, una variedad de conceptos y limitaciones son superpuestos sobre Atma, al igual que una variedad de gustos y colores son atribuídos al agua.

 

       Atma Bhoda, trad. de F. Lucille
