The (tat) mind (cetas) took shelter (āśritavataḥ) in compact (nibiḍam) contraction (saṅkocam) (which rises) from illusion (vimohāt) due to which (yasya) (it) was (abhavat) terrified (bhayam) in this world (iha) by pervading the knots --i.e. limitation-- of the senses (indriya-parvan-gebhyaḥ). (But) after attaining (āpya) the Understanding or Authority of Pure and Powerful Consciousness (vimala-urjita-saṃvid-ājñām), now (adya) it is freed from fear (niḥśaṅkam) (and it is) delighted (ramate) in (roaming in) the forest of the objects of the senses (viṣaya-atavīṣu). || 4 ||

Notes:

The mind takes shelter in limitation as it sees only its own contracted activities. This limitation comes from illusion and when the mind pervades the illusion lying in the senses, or when it believes in what it sees or understands merely through the senses, it exists in the condition of ‘fear’. The mind, entering the realm of limitation held by the senses, constantly fears because it is in danger of unexpected events.

(My) mind (cetaḥ), (which) has never (na) obtained (avāpa) that (tat) Entrance (praveśam) into the Path devoid of terrible obstacles (which are) difficult to break through (dur-bheda-bhinna-viṣama-argala-bhinna-mārgam) (, and) was concealed (tiraskṛtam) by the interruption of the net of numerous thoughts (analpa-vikalpa-jāla-vighnaiḥ) (when) it was desired (vāñchitam) by effort (yatnena), which --i.e. that Entrance-- (yat) rejoices (ramate) now (adya) (as) the Temple of Śiva within (śiva-mandira-āntaḥ).  || 9 ||

Notes:

My mind was the obstacle in the form of numerous thoughts when I had a desire to enter the Temple of Śiva within by my own effort, but now, this same mind became something that enjoys the entrance into the Temple of Śiva within because it is now freed from the desire to enter by effort. Nāgaḥ speaks about ‘nirāveśāveśa’ or ‘Entrance into one’s Self without entering’. This is permanent Awareness of the Self.

(For) by the decay of the thoughts of duality (galita-bheda-vikalpayā), you are (tvam) truly (eva) not (na) deprived (vimucyase) of the Beauty of Consciousness (saṃvit-śriyā) even for a single moment (Oh mind!)

Notes:

Nāgaḥ here addresses his own mind and asks that what kind of meritorious act he performed before of which reward is experienced by him now? For his mind cannot lose sight of Consciousness now. This is a rhetorical question which points to the fact that Consciousness rises on Her own Freedom --i.e. always risen-- and does not dependent on any act performed by any human being.

Notes:

Nāgaḥ addresses his mind again, but in the name of his senses this time. His mind is arrested all the time and it does not matter what it sees, hears, etc., because his mind is extremely slow or silent because it enjoys the Perfection of Śiva, the Endless Beauty of Existence.

This (etat) mind (cittam) which (yat) (even in) pursuing (anu-vartamānam) the condition of satisfaction (nirvṛti-daśām) (that is) attained (prāpteṣu) in (mental) happiness (sukheṣu) remained (abhūt) manifold (citram) and uneven --i.e. dualistic-- (asamam), now (adya), even (api) in severest (duḥ-saha-tareṣu) pain (duḥkheṣu) is (āste) that (tat) (which is) full of this Juice of Pure Joy (etat…pūrṇa-pramoda-rasa-nirbharam). || 24 ||

Notes:

That mind or ‘citta’, which by attaining satisfaction in mental happiness still remains dual, but attains the Juice of Pure Joy or Bliss even in pain or sadness, is called ‘mind’ only figuratively, because it is Citi or Consciousness. Nāgaḥ states here that his mind becomes Consciousness, hence, his Bliss is beyond the opposites of mind like happiness and sadness. From now on, the author addresses his mind as Supreme Consciousness due to its Complete Illumination which was narrated throughout the Scripture.
