Iyengar: The, the seer swells in his own true splendor.
Carrera: Then the Seer (Self) abides in Its own nature.
Taimni: Then the Seer is established in his own essential and fundamental nature.
For those of us raised with the Bible, Carrera offers similar teachings from that book. In the New Testament, Jesus says “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God”. He notes the lack of choice in this phrase – when your heart is pure, you will see God. In the Old Testament, Psalm 46.10, he points out “Be still and know that I am God”. Like nirodha (a clear and steady mind), and like a pure heart, stillness is a requirement.
Both Taimni and Iyengar point out that waves of consciousness distort the true expression of the soul. Taimni points out that this state of self realization cannot be understood outside oneself, only from within. Iyengar states that when the mind is regulated and restrained, knowledge can be seen truly and clearly and the “grandeur of the seer is seen and felt”.
