(Though) Untransmissible The Metempiric Consciousness Getting The Likeness Of Buddhi Becomes The Cause Of The Consciousness Of Buddhi.


Knowledge of its own nature through self-cognition (is obtained) when consciousness assumes that form in which it does not pass from place to place.

Sw. Satchidananda

The consciousness of the Puruṣa is unchangeable; by getting the reflection of it, the mind-stuff becomes conscious of the Self.


Although it is unchanging, consciousness becomes aware of its own intelligence by means of pervading the forms assumed by the intelligence.
