Vijnana Bhairava Tantra
- 136: All contact with pleasure and pain is through the senses, (knowing this), one should detach oneself from the senses, and withdrawing within should abide in his essential Self.
- 137: All things are revealed by jnana i.e. the knowledge or Self and the Self is revealed by all things. By reason of their nature being the same, one should contemplate on the knower and the known as one and the same.
- 138: O dear one, when the ideating mind (manas), the ascertaining intellect (buddhi), the vital energy (pranasakti) and the limited empirical I, this set of four dissolves, then the previously described (tat) state of Bhairava appears.
- 139: O Goddess, I have described hundred and twelve dharanas or practice in which there can be no surge in the mind. Knowing them, one can be a perfect gnostic person.
- 140: If one is established even in one of these practices, he will become Bhairava in himself. He can effect anything by word alone. He will have the power to confer benediction or malediction.
