I.47. NIRVICARA-VAISARADYE ‘DHYATMA-PRASADAH’
‘On attaining the utmost purity in samadhi without inquiry, illumination dawns’.
Only when the meditator achieves the state of ‘samadhi’ in which there is no longer the process of inquiry, and has purified himself, does Realization dawn. The states of ‘Samadhi’ through which he passes before that final goal are very rewarding and blissful, and many powers manifest in those states. But the seeker must see even these
rewarding experiences as obstacles for they too, though the most rewarding, must be transcended in order to merge with the Self.
