(They are) to be displayed (darśanīyaḥ) for (that) intellect (which) has been Empowered by the Grace of Śambhu (śambhu-prasāda-sabalī-kṛta-cetanāyāḥ). || 1 ||

That (tat) threefold (tri-rūpam) aspect (of Consciousness) beginning with jāgrat or wakefulness (and) ending in darkness --i.e. suṣupti or deep sleep-- (jāgrat-ādi-timira-anta-padam) is to be observed (saṃdṛsyate) just like water (jalam…iva), which (yat) has three phases --i.e ice, liquid and vapour-- (trividha-ātmakam). Though (api) always (satatam) invisible (antar-hitaḥ), the Essence (sāraḥ) of all (sarvasya) triads (tritayasya) perpetually (sadā) remains (tiṣṭhati) in (that) Abode, (which) is not different from them (tat-abhinna-dhāmni).  || 5 ||

Just as (yathā) the darkness of deep sleep or suṣupti (suṣupti-timiram) is indeed (satyam) extremely (paramam) subtle (susūkṣmam) (and) mysterious (gūḍham) due to the absence (abhāvāt) of mind and the lifeless physical body (jaḍa-śarīra-dhiyoḥ), (it is) like (tathā…eva) vapour (bāṣpaḥ) (that is) mostly (bhūyaḥ) invisible (tirohitaḥ) (and) immeasurable (aprameyaḥ) in this world (itaḥ), (but it) always (aniśam) exists (satatiḥ) as the root of both (liquid and solid forms) (dvaya-mūlam…eva). || 6 ||

Without (vinā) the reflected image (bimbam), a mirror, which is made of that --i.e. of its reflected image-- (tat-maya-darpaṇam…tat), becomes (bhavati) like the real --i.e. non-reflected-- nature of one’s face (vaktra-svarūpam…iva) which (yat) does not (na) shine (bhāti) in a mirror (darpaṇe). || 9 ||

Only (eva) that (sā) Source (yoniḥ) or (api) ‘Original form (of a reflection)’ (svarūpam) attains (eti) the sphere of the senses --i.e. becomes visible to the senses-- (gocaram) (which) in this way (evam) assumes the ‘state of being composed of that’ --i.e. of the sphere of the senses-- (tat-rūpatā) while (yāvat) (It) exists (vartati) in the reflection (pratimi). Nevertheless (tathā…api), the Source (yoniḥ) simultaneously (yugapad) keeps (dharati) Its truly (eva) Invisible Essential Form (svabhāvam…durdarśam) as the firm (pratiṣṭhaḥ) basis (sutalaḥ) of (Its) reflection (pratimaḥ). || 10 ||

Consequently (tadartham), the Source (yoniḥ) is said to be (kathyate) that (sā) which (yā) Transcends (ativartati) that --i.e. the reflection-- (tat), (but It is also) the Essential Nature of that --i.e. of the reflection-- (tat-svarūpam), the Uninterrupted (satatiḥ) Prakāśa or Light (prakāśaḥ) in this world (iha). This (idam) reflection (pratirūpam) takes place (gatam) merely (eva) in the Source (yonyām), (but it is also) pervaded by the Source --lit. caused to appear by the Source-- (yoni-praveśitam), (and) in this way (evam), it --i.e. the reflection-- (tat) always (sadā) attains (ādravati) the State of Oneness (with its Source) (aikyam). || 11 ||

(S ince) the triad of the sequence of wakefulness (, dreaming and deep sleep) (jāgrat-krama-tritayam) comes into being (āgatam) in the Lord (īśanam), (in the same way), one’s own reflected face (appears) (bimbitam…sva-vaktram…iti) in one’s own (svāyām) existence (bhūtau). Therefore (tathā), the non-difference (abhedaḥ) of the (Lord’s) Invisible Nature and the created reflection (adṛśya-rūpa-janita-pratimoḥ) is truly (eva) called (kathitaḥ) Universal Pervasion (sarvatra-gaḥ) (that is) the Mahārthaḥ, the Great Meaning (of Oneness) (mahā-arthaḥ). || 12 ||

Even during the difficult process of this (presentation of the Actor) (tat-sañcare…api), the appearance of the Actor (naṭa-darśanam) is an intermediate condition (antarālam) characterized by Absorption (veśa-ātmakam) (, which) bestows the gift of being separated from the senses (kara-viyoga-maya-pradānam). Though it is Joyful (ullāsi…api), it is undoubtedly momentary (kṣaṇikam…eva) and (ca) devoid (śūnyam) of stability (sthiratayā), hence (tathā), it is to be avoided (varjanīyam) by means of enlightening the senses (kara-bodhanena). || 16 ||

The Process of Sacrifice (yāga-kramaḥ) takes place --lit. roars-- (ravati) as the Essence of the destruction (nāśa-ātmakaḥ) of the vāsanā-s or impressions of discrimination (bhedana-vāsanānāṃ), (and) that (saḥ) is said (kathitaḥ) to be the Churning of the Ocean (of Consciousness) (arṇava-manthanaṃ). Therefore (tasmāt), this (ayam) fourfold (caturdhā) Sequence of (these) Voids (vyoma-kramaḥ) ranging from the Wheel of Kha to Bhū (kha-ādi-bhava-anta-cakram) evidently (prakaṭam) becomes (bhavati) the Mass of the Ocean of Consciousness (cit-arṇava-ghanaḥ). || 30 ||

“This (iyam) is the (sā) Power (śaktiḥ) of Śiva (śivasya) characterized by activity (kriyā-ātmikā), (Who) rests in the limited being (paśu-vartinī) (and) binds him (bandhayitrī), (but when She) is understood (jñātā) as the Path to one’s own Self (sva-mārga-sthā), (She) produces success (siddhi-upapādikā).

(The limited being) is ruined (saṃruddhaḥ) by (his) puryaṣṭaka or subtle body (puryaṣṭakena) (that is) situated in the intellect, false-I and mind (manaḥ-aham-buddhi-vartinā) in the form of the rising of tanmātra-s or subtle elements (of mentation) (tanmātra-udaya-rūpeṇa), (because) the rising of ideas (pratyaya-udbhavam) takes place in that --i.e. in puryaṣṭaka-- (tat-uttham).

Someone, who is a subject (to such a play of the puryaṣṭaka,) (paravaśaḥ) enjoys (bhuṅkte) the fruits --i.e. ideas-- (bhogam), (and) wanders (in his mind) (saṃsaret) because of the existence of that --i.e. of the puryaṣṭaka-- (tat-bhāvāt). Therefore (ataḥ), we explain (sampracakṣmahe) the cause (kāraṇam) of the dissolution of this wandering --i.e. saṃsāra-- (saṃsṛti-pralayasya…asya). || ”

This (eṣaḥ) Process (kramaḥ) rises (udeti) from transcending unsteadiness (of mind) (vicalana-ākramaṇāt). (It is) merely the complete purification of (one’s) dim intellect (malina-buddhi-viśuddhi-mātraḥ) (that is) like a transparent crystal (svaccha-acchavat), because (yataḥ) intellect (buddhiḥ) reflects the diversities of its environment (sva-pariveṣa-vicāra-śīlā), but (vā) (it) becomes (bhavati) filled with (the) Light (of Consciousness) (bhā-acitā) in Aloneness, (which) pervades Tranquillity (śānti-ga-kevala-tve). || 39 ||
