4.9 The Yogin who recollects that I am their Divine Unborn Self need not fear being reborn.
Being mindful that the Divine Unborn-Self is Liberation Itself is the reassurance that one’s own body-consciousness, tied to the wheel of perpetual rebirth, can now be extinguished forever.
4.10 One may enter and find refuge in my Divine Self because their being has become purified through yogic austerities that directly lead to the Self Realization of Noble Wisdom—the divine key to Liberation.
Yoga is the necessary ingredient of release from one’s confinement in samsara. Through Yogic-Discipline one is empowered to relinquish both outer and inner attachments. In this fashion one’s former domicile in the karmadhatu is discarded in favor of the liberating spiritual-residence in the Dharmadhatu, since there’s no more karma to burn in Light of the True Home of the Deathless.
4.11 However people awaken in the Unborn, regardless of their exterior religiosity, my universal salvific Spirit will anoint them with the oil of inner-transformation.
It matters not from which spiritual path one begins the journey home to the Unborn; it is the singular moment of awakening (undivided-bodhi) that is the markless-mark of Liberation.
4.12 Those who are obsessed with earthly success will eventually attain their worldly desires, some even with the assistance from heavenly-devas; yet this mark of success is measured solely in transient gain.
Success is a word that is fashioned after worldly-gain. There’s no such word that is linked with Spiritual Liberation.
There are some schools of hinduism which do not equate renunciation with austerity. The idea being, I suppose, that as long as we are bound to the wheel we should at least make the most of it. Worldly gain is therefore not an inappropriate concern except outside of one’s life stage, which includes both productivity and spiritual refinement at different times. This refers back to the karmic yogin but we will see the limitation of the gunas again in subsequent chapters (14).
