9 Burn down the forest of ignorance with the fire of wisdom—“I am one of pure awareness”—and be happy and free from distress.
10 That in which all this world appears, is really supreme joy. This is you, so be happy.
11 If one believes oneself to be free, one is free, and if one believes oneself to be bound, one is bound. In this case, the saying, “And so it is,” is true.
12 Though you may experience yourself as being involved in the pleasures and sorrows of this world, what you really are is perfect, free and actionless, the all-pervading witness, unattached, void of mentally based desires, and therefore at peace.
13 Meditate on your Self as motionless and fully aware, free from duality, and abandon the mistaken notion that you are a derivative of something other than you, internally or externally.
14 You have long been trapped in the snare (pashu) of being identified with the body. Cut it with the sword of wisdom and be happy.
15 You are really unbound and, though you have the ability to act, what you really are does not act, is all-knowing, and perfectly pure. The cause of your bondage is that you continue to try to still the mind.
