mAyA panchakam


Nirupama nithyaniramaskhepy akhande

Mayichithi sarvavikalpanadhishunye

Ghatayathi JagadhIshajeeva bhedham

Thwaghathitha ghatanaa patiyasi mAyA. 1


Máyá which is skilful in accomplishing the impossible brings about the distinctions of the world. Èùvara, and jèva in my consciousness, which is unique and eternal, partless and impartite, and which is free from all distinctions.

Sruthi satha nigamantha sodhakan

Apyahaha dhanadinidarshanena sadhya,

Kalushayathi chathushpadadhyabhinna,

Aghatithagatana patiyasi mAyA. 2


Máyá which is skilful in accomplishing the impossible deludes at once, alas, even those who can clarify hundreds of Veda and Vedánta texts by showing up wealth, etc. and makes them non-different from quadrupeds.

Sukhachidhakhanda vibodhamadvitheeyam,

Viyadanaladhi vinirmathe niyojya,

Bhramayathi bhavasAgare nithantham,

Thwagathitha ghatanaa patiyasi mAyA. 3

Máyá which is skilful in accomplishing the impossible makes the Self, which is of the nature of bliss and consciousness which is impartite and non-dual, whirl round very much in the ocean of samsára by associating it with the created ákáùa, air etc.

Apagathagunavarna jAthibhedhe,

Sukhachithi vipravida dhyahamkruthim cha,

Sphutayathi suthadArageha moham,

Thwagathitha ghatanaa patiyasi mAyA. 4

Máyá which is skilful in accomplishing the impossible causes the appearance of notions of ``I am a Bráhmin'', ``I am a Vaiùya'', etc., and the passion for son, wife and house in the bliss-consciousness which is free from the distinctions of quality, colour, and caste.

Vidhiharihara vibhedham apyakhande,

Batha virachayya budhaana api prakamam,

Bramnayathi hariharavibhedhabhAvAn,

Aghathitha ghatanaa patiyasi mAyA. 5

Máyá which is skilful in accomplishing the impossible deludes, alas, very much Harim Hara, and others, though wise, by introducing the distinctions of Brahmá, Hari and Hara in the unitary reality.
