01. Twilight Of Duality

Music & lyrics by Rudra
Aham Nirguna Akshara Nirmala Kutastha Kevala Satchitananda

I am the mother of all manifested forms
I am the father known as the immovable substratum
My children are the names born of mind
In me they move and shift forms like waves
None knows me through empty reasoning
Except through the words of the indomitable Shruti
I am the subtler than the subtle and the greatest
I am the Lord of the Chariot with five horses

Aham Nirguna Akshara Nirmala Kutastha Kevala Satchitananda

I weave the universe with myself as the material

I am the One
Non dually One
I am the Primodial Self
I am the Absolute

Aho aham namo mahyam, Vinasho yasya nasti me
Brahmadis tamba paryantam jagan nasho pi tishthitah

I am the mother of all manifested forms
I am the father known as the immovable substratum
My children are the names born of mind
In me they move and shift forms like waves
None knows me through empty reasoning
Except through the words of the indomitable Shruti
I am the subtler than the subtle and the greatest
I am indeed the Lord of this Chariot

Aham Nirguna Akshara Nirmala Kutastha Kevala Satchitananda (x2)

I am the One
Non dually One
I am the Primordial Self
I am the Absolute


02. Ananya Chaitanya

Music & lyrics by Rudra
Like Asuras we worship blindness
Innocence raped by Avidya
Tying oneself to the wheel of Samsara by seeking that which is impermanent
This delusion of a million births gets destroyed when one knows this Ananya Chaitanya

Shaivoham Shivoham Nityananda Shivoham Chidananda Shivoham Ananya Chaitanya

This eternal stream of consciousness vibrating in every iota
As the changeless principle behind the changing phenomenon

Om Namah Shivaya (x4)

That Purusha is I
Veiled as it were by a bright vessel
That Purusha is all, is indeed One
The Jiva who knows this gains all
This the Ishavasya reveals as Ananya Chaitanya

Shaivoham Shivoham Nityananda Shivoham Chidananda Shivoham Ananya Chaitanya (x2)


03. The Pathless Path To The Knowable Unknown

Music & lyrics by Rudra
Hara Hara Shankara Shiva Shiva Shankara (x4)

Ishwaro Gururatmeti
Murti bheda Vibhagine
Vyomavad vyapta dehaya
Dakshinamurataye namah

Renouncing the pleasures of thousand heavens
Destroying the absurd believes of the Lost
Having gained the wealth that can be robbed
Let the shruti be heard from a Guru
This pathless path where the Unknowable is known
Frees oneself from the tyranny of inadequacy
The Freedom gained is Limitation removed
The Knowledge gained is ignorance removed

"It is known to him to whom it is unknown;
he to whom it is known does not know it.
It is unknown to those who know,
and known to those who know not."

Not knowing this I die
Not knowing this I am born
Not knowing this I strive
Knowing this I become Immortal

There is no difference between Jiva, Gagat & Ishwara
There is no difference between Ishwara, Guru & Atma

Atma Satyam Jaganmithya (x4)

Ishwaro Gururatmeti
Murti bheda Vibhagine
Vyomavad vyapta dehaya
Dakshinamurataye namah

Hara Hara Shankara Shiva Shiva Shankara (x8)


04. There The Sun Never Shines

Music & lyrics by Rudra
An abode unheard of to the ones who trust in oblations
It cannot be won through rituals and enjoyments
This highest abode shines like a thousand suns
Which burns away the darkness of a thousand births
And yet there the Sun never shines

Amala, Achala, Shuddha, Chaitanyam
Satyam, Purnam, Anantam Atma

"The indwelling Self of all is surely He of whom the heaven is the head,
The moon and sun are the two eyes, the directions are the two ears,
The revealed Vedas are the speech, air is the vital force,
The whole Universe is the heart,
All It is He from whose two feet emerged the earth"

An abode where the servant becomes the master
An abode where the master becomes the servant
This highest abode shines like a thousand suns
Which burns away the darkness of a thousand births
And yet there the Sun never shines

Amala, Achala, Shuddha, Chaitanyam
Satyam, Purnam, Anantam Atma

I am the abode where the sun never shines
I am the abode from which emerges the Universe

Amala, Achala, Shuddha, Chaitanyam
Satyam, Purnam, Anantam Atma (x2)

I am the abode where the sun never shines
I am the abode from which emerges the Universe (x2)


05. Veil Of Maya

Music & lyrics by Rudra
Brahmanandamn Paramasukhadam Kevalam Jnanamurthim
Dvandvaatheetham Gaganasadrusam Tathwamasyaadhi Lakshyam
Ekam Nithyam Vimalam Achalam Sarvadhee Saakshibhutam
Bhaavaatheetham Trigunarahitham Sadgurum Namami

Vairagya drives me insane and desperately I seek with faggots in hand,
A Guru with Shraddha
For he is well versed in the Shruti that severs Samsara
He take me beyond the gates of sorrow and pain through knowledge

One is the Southern Course, filled with pain and pleasure
And there is the Northern Course, which leads to renunciation
Through restraint the Northern Course I won
It is the path where the sun is conquered and the self is merged in Purusha

That Purusha, without names & forms and Immortality are one and the same
Thus was the instruction from the Guru who has transcended the veil of Maya
The colossal error called Adhyasa was removed by Apavada
This Brahmavidya alone is the panacea for the disease of Bhavasagara

Adhyaropa Apavada (x2)
Negation of the Superimposition (x2)


06. Ageless Consciousness, I Am

Music & lyrics by Rudra
All Karmas proceed with the force to either remove pain or gain pleasure
Experiencing pleasure and pain, we roam the streets of Samsara

Where there is Birth, there will be certain pain
There is certain Death, and nothing to gain

Not knowing light from darkness we roam the streets of misery
In beauty there is ugliness
In ugliness I see beauty too
What a repulsive body that I have which oozes grime and filth
These carnal desires do I find unfulfilling

Where there is Birth, there will be certain pain
There is certain Death, and nothing to gain

Sadashiva Samarambham Shankaracharya Madhyamam
Asmadacharya Paryantam Vande Guru Paramparam

Finally the Truth is seen
Unknowable once to me but now known to me
What an error it is to take myself to be what I am not

No words can reveal me
Yet words alone set me free
The beatitude revealed through desciplic succession

No delusion for me
I am the ever free
No illusion for me
I am the ever free

Sadashiva Samarambham Shankaracharya Madhyamam
Asmadacharya Paryantam Vande Guru Paramparam...


07. Meditations On The Mahavakya

Music & lyrics by Rudra
Ekam Eva Advitiyam (x3)

Meditation on the axiom that Shvetaketu recived from his father
It destroys the life of becoming someone other than what you are
The preceptor of nobility wields the garland of words from the Veda
Stringed with the right method, to reveal the Lord that you already are

The destruction of preconceived notions is possible but only with a purified mind
You listen, then you comtemplate and free yourself from the delusion
By seeing that 'That' and 'thou' are indeed one since the dawn of time

Through this axiom the self is realised
Through this eralisation you gain Immortality
Throught this attainment you'll realise that you are everything
Sarvam Khalvidam Brahma

This is Brahman
Thou are Brahman
All is Brahman
That Thou Art
(x2)

Ekam Eva Adivitiyam (x4)


08. Aham Brahmasmi

Music & lyrics by Rudra
That which Yajnavalkya sought away from home
That which Maitreyi wanted to know is
That which by seeking, all is known
Is but the Self within

Aham Brahmasmi (x4)

The world resolves into my senses
The senses resolve in the mind
The mind resolves in the "I"
And the "I" resolves in the Self
What is left to be known?
Once the Self is known
What is left to be seen?
When there is nothing left to see

The Self prevails when you destroy the veils
Of duality caused by the absence of vidya
It is not an effect caused
It is that which is uncaused
Beyond the ken of causality

That which is to be known solely through Atmavichara

Aham Brahmasmi (x8)


09. Shivoham

Asanga Nirguna Arupavyaya
Avyakta Ananta Amritananda
Sampurna Sukha Shivoham Shivoham

Satyam Shivam Shubham Sundaram

10. In The Fourth Quarter: Turiya

Music & lyrics by Rudra
I am not Vaishvanara, the first
I am not Taijasa, the second
I am not Prajna, the third
I am the Turiya, the fourth

I am Satyam which cannot be negated
I am Chit that is Omniscient
I am Ananda that is all pervasive
I am the Lord of All, Om

The fouth prevades the three as an invariable existence
The three cannot stand apart from the fourth
The three letters, which constitutes (Om), is pervaded by the Self
Certainly Om is the Self-Absolute

I am the One who shines in the Sun & the Moon
I am the One who shines in you
I am the One in whose presence existence shines
I am indeed the Light of lights
In all states of experience I shine alone
I am Shivam, Shivahom

Ayam Atma Brahma (x2)

Om Shanti Shanti Shanti
