manobuddhyahaṃkāra cittāni nāhaṃ
na ca śrotrajihve na ca ghrāṇanetre
na ca vioma bhūmir na tejo na vāyuḥ
cidānandarūpaḥ śivo’ham śivo’ham
I am not the mind, intellect, thought, ego, or some form of the supreme being;
I neither have ears, nor tongue and I neither have nose, nor eyes;
I am not the sky, earth, light or the wind;
I am consciousness and bliss. I am Shiva, I am Shiva.
