Vijnana Bhairava Tantra
- 151: The greatest contemplation is that state where one is absorbed into the shakti of Rudra. Otherwise how can there be any worship of that element and who is it that is to be gratified?
- 152: One’s own self is verily the all-pervasive bliss of freedom and the essence of consciousness. Absorption into that nature or form of one’s ownself is said to be the real bath (purification).
- 153: The oblations and the worshipper by which verily the transcendental reality is worshipped are all one and the same, What then is this worship?
- 154: Prana and apana, having moved swiftly in a distinct direction, by the wish of kundalini, that great goddess stretches (elongates herself) and becomes the supreme place of pilgrimage of both manifest and unmanifest.
- 155: One who pursues and abides in this sacrifice which is full of supreme bliss attains by (the grace of) that goddess the supreme state of bhairava. The breath is exhaled with the sound ‘Ha’ and inhaled again with the sound ‘Sa’. Thus the individual always repeats this particular mantra Hamsa.
