Vijnana Bhairava Tantra
- 11: In reality, Bhairava is neither of the form of nine (navatma), nor a multitude of letters (sabdarasi) nor of the three heads (trisira),
- 12: Nor of three saktis, nor consisting of nada and bindu, nor of ardhacandra, nirodhika, etc., nor is His essence concerned with the piercing of the (six) cakras, nor does sakti or Energy constitute His essence.
- 13: The above concepts are used for those whose intellect is not yet mature enough to grasp Reality, Just as a bogy is used to frighten away children from their obstinacy for getting some worthless or undesirable thing. They are meant to induce the aspirants to tread the path of righteousness and spiritual practices in order that they may ultimately realize the nature of Bhairava which is non-different from their essential Self.
- 14: Paravastha (the highest state) of Bhairava is free (unmukta) of all notions pertaining to direction (dik), time (kala), nor can that be particularized by some definite space (desa) or designation (uddesa). In truth, paramarthatah can neither be indicated nor described in words.
- 15: One can be aware of that only when one is completely free of all thought-constructs. One can have an experience of that bliss in his own inmost self. That state of Bhairava which is fuIl of the bliss of non-difference from the entire universe is alone Bhairavi or Sakti of Bhairava.
