A Most Confidential Gnosis
9.1 The Blessed Unborn Lord said: Arjuna, since you are not envious of me I shall now reveal to you the most Royal-Gnosis. Combining this gnosis with Divine Self-Realization, you will be liberated from even the worst wrong-doing.
9.2 This is the Mysterium Regium—a Majestic Science. It is a most intuitive-gnosis, joyous in its revelation and unchanging.
9.3 Those without sincere faith in this Holy Dharma will never realize My Essential-Self and are thus doomed to return to their mortal-coil death after death.
The Blessed One proclaims to Arjuna the Highest Self-Gnosis. This Mysterium Regium—the Monarch of all sciences—is the very essence of the Holy Dharma, for it tears-asunder man’s suffering-nature and reveals to him the True Nature of Bliss in the Unborn. This is an intuitive Self-realization and is the hallmark of all authentic spiritual experiences. The yogin who is well-established in this gnosis has the all-intuitive wisdom of penetrating to the core-mystery of how the Supreme-Spirit Lord is both immanent and transcendent. In such a hallowed enterprise the yogin intuits his own union with the Absolute and hence is immune from all evil predicaments. Those who are not attuned with this Holy Dharma are doomed to further endless-repetitive patterns of fate.
9.4 As the Unmanifested, I pervade the entire cosmos; yet in My-Self I remain Transcendent. All of creation abides in me yet I do-not abide in creation.
9.5 Behold! All of creation does not really physically exist in Me. This is the Divine Mystery. My-Self sustains all of creation but has no-physical contact with any of it.
9.6 Just as air moves freely within the infinity of space, just-so does the spirit of creation and all of its creatures move freely within My-Self.
Most sublime mysteries. Although all of creation is permeated by the Divine-Self, creation does not comprise nor reveal The Lord’s Blessed-Essence. Thus, the Lord is never exhausted by creation although it is formed out of His-Own Self-Texture. The motionless Amala-consciousness permeates all vibratory beings, even though these beings do not physically exist In IT. This is the ultimate-paradox of the Cosmos, such that IT is the ensoulment of all creatures, yet IT does not become entangled with any of them.
9.7 At the end of a kalpa, creation returns to my prakriti (see 7.4-7.6). They are then once again regenerated into the next kalpa.
9.8 In animating my prakriti all infinite varieties of creatures are formed and are subject to the Laws of Nature.
Such is the state of evolution. All phenomenal worlds and its inhabitants are the figments of Divine Animation and must subsist in their roles until the great Cosmic-Drama runs its course again and again.
9.9 I My-Self am never affected by the cosmic-actions of prakriti. My Spirit stands detached, watching over all.
The Spirit of the Lord breathes-life into all matter whilst at the same time remaining motionlessly-unattached.
9.10 Through my impregnating-force, the elements of nature generates the cycle of life and death; thus does the world turn diurnally on its course of creation and dissolution.
It is important to note that the Unborn Lord is not “the doer” in any of this. It is the animating impulse of prakriti that sets all into motion.
