    hariḥ oṁ

    namasté


    When at night in the darkness ( code for differentiated/fragmented consciousness) the stars come out to brighten the sky (vyoman) the best they can ( to uplift society);
    Then upon the morning light even these stars are no longer visible , awashed with the fullness of the sun (undifferentiated consciousness or fullness, paripūrṅānuttara¹ ) .
    Even a glimpse (dṛṣṭipāta) from the sun rising, the dawn, & the night vanishes. Men may come and go, the ages may wax and wane, yet saṃskṛtam is eternal , the breath of para-vac.


    iti śivaṁ



    • paripūrṅānuttara = pari+pūrṅā+anuttara ajapa
      • pari = fully , abundantly , richly
      • pūrṅā = filled, finished , accomplished
      • anuttara = chief, principle; nothing that can suprass this level

    यतस्त्वं शिवसमोऽसि
    yatastvaṁ śivasamo'si
    because you are identical with śiva

    Namaste Yajvan,

    Speaking of Saṃskṛta - śivaṁ - what is the ending ṁ? The anusvara is ṃ. How do you pronounce the ṁ? I don't see it in the IAST wiki page.
