Vijnana Bhairava Tantra
- 06: Paratva, or transcendence, cannot exist in the divisions of varna (colour), shabda (sound) or roopa (form). If transcendence is indivisible, then it cannot be defined or coexist with composite parts. O Lord, be pleased to destroy all my doubts completely.
- 07: Bhairava said, Good! Good! Dear one. You have put questions which pertain to the very quintessence of Tantra.
- 08: Though, the matter is most esoteric, oh auspicious one, yet I shall explain it to you.
- 09: Whatever has been declared to be the composite form (Sakala) of Bhairava, that oh goddess should be considered as insubstantial (asarataya), as phantasmagoria (as the net of Indra), as magical illusion (maya), as dream, as the mirage of a town of Gandharvas in the sky.
- 10: The sakala aspect of Bhairava is taught, as a prop for meditation, to those who are of deluded intellect, who are interested in ostentatious performance of rituals. It has been declared for those people who are a prey to dichotomising thought-constructs.
