Kaal Jnana (Final Upadesa of Shiva to Shakti) ~ Devikalottara

KAAL GYAN ~ The Supreme wisdom bestowed upon Shakti by Shiva, when Shakti asks Shiva for the highest wisdom. Shakti asks, “O Lord of all celestial beings! I yearn to know that path of supreme wisdom and the code of conduct by adopting which one can get liberation, so that all humanity may attain salvation — I request you to enlighten me on them, out of your grace.” Shiva answers, “O Queen among women! So that everyone may attain knowledge, I shall clearly. explain to you today the highest knowledge and the discipline to be followed by which discerning seekers will attain liberation, which is free from any blemish and is difficult to describe. O Lady with fair countenance! Understand that one who is not able to realize the Truth in his heart by this knowledge of spiritual wisdom known as KĀLA JNĀNA, can never attain it even by studying countless crores of sāstras (scriptures) spread out like the sky.” ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• This work, one of the upa-āgamas, explains the supreme wisdom to be attained by mature souls and their mode of life, as expounded by the Supreme Lord Siva to Devi Parvati. It is the essence of all Agama Sastras on matters of spiritual knowledge. This is verily the boat which can rescue the mortals struggling hard, sinking and rising, in the sorrowful ocean of samsara of endless cycles of births and deaths and take them by the direct path to the shore of liberation. Let all earnest seekers after Truth, instead of groping in the dark, bewildered, and losing their way, adopt the help of this straight path and reach the supreme state to bliss and peace. Ramana Maharshi spontaneously translated these Agamas into Tamiḷ verse in the very early days when he was living in Virupaksha cave. •••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• WE MEDITATE ON KAAL GYAN ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
