1. I am not mind, intellect, thought, or ego;
Not hearing, taste, smelling or sight; Not ether or earth, fire or air.
I am the Self comprised of Consciousness and Bliss I am Shiva, I am Shiva.

2. I am not that which is called Prana, nor the five vital winds;… See More
Not the seven components of the body
Nor the five sheaths; nor the five organs of action.
I am the Self comprised of Consciousness and Bliss I am Shiva, I am Shiva.

3. I have no aversion or clinging, greed or delusion;
No envy or pride, duty or purpose; No desire, no freedom.
I am the soul of Knowledge and Bliss I am Shiva, I am Shiva.

4. I am not virtue or vice, not pleasure or pain;
Not sacred chant or pilgrimage, not Veda or sacrifice
I am not enjoying, enjoyable, or enjoyer.
I am the soul of Knowledge and Bliss I am Shiva, I am Shiva.

5. I have no death or fear, no distinction of caste;
No father, no mother, no birth;
No friend or relation, no master or disciple.
I am the soul of Knowledge and Bliss I am Shiva, I am Shiva.

6. I am changeless, formless, and through all-pervasiveness omnipresent;
I am not touched by attachment of senses;
I am not freedom nor knowable.
I am the soul of Knowledge and Bliss I am Shiva, I am Shiva.
