My greetings to you all. We have seen third slokam of the Five Jewels of Maneesha Panchakam in our previous post of Part 6 of 8. Now, we will see the fourth of these 5 important slokas. These are recited extempore by the learned man in reply to Lord Shiva.
The THIRD one is as follows:
యా తిర్యఙ్నర దేవతాభిరహమిత్యంతః స్ఫుటా గృహ్యతే
యద్భాసా హృదయాక్ష దేహవిషయా భాన్తి స్వతో చేతనాః,
తాం భాస్యైః పిహితార్కమణ్డల నిభాం స్ఫూర్తిం సదా భావయన్
యొగీ నిర్వృతమానసో హి గురురిత్యేషా మనీషా మమ.
या तिर्यङ्नरदेवताभिरहमित्यन्तः स्फुटा गृह्यते
यद्भासा हृदयाक्षदेहविषया भान्ति स्वतो चेतनाः,
ताम् भास्यैः पिहितार्कमण्डलनिभां स्फूर्तिं सदा भावय
न्योगी निर्वृतमानसो हि गुरुरित्येषा मनीषा मम ||
yaa thiryagnara dhaevathaabhirahamithyamthah sphutaa grihyathae
yadhbhaasaa hridhayaaksha dhaehavishayaa bhaanthi swatho chaethanaah,
thaam bhaasyaih pihithaarkamandala nibhaam sphoorthim sadhaa bhaavayan
yogee nirvrithamaanaso hi gururithyaeshaa maneeshaa mama.
The word meaning is as follows

swatho = this pure self,
chaethanaa = the inner consciousness
vishayaa = the sense objects are
bhaanthi = perceived (illuminated) by
hridaya, daeha = the mind, the body and
aksha = eyes etc., sense organs.
thaam = The very mind, body and sense organs
bhaasai hi = though illuminated by this (consciousness)
pihitha = apparently cloud this consciousness,
arka mandala = just as the effulgent Sun is
nibham = concealed by the clouds (caused by the sun).
yogee = That person of perfect realization
nirvrutha = with complete and clear understanding
spoorthim = due to his wisdom,
sadaa bhhavayan = ever meditates on this
Maanaso hi = verily in his mind.
maneesha mama = My firm understanding is
yaesha = that Great one with this concept
Gurur iti = is the real preceptor.
The Purport or Bhaava
The Self or pure consciousness is experienced clearly within by all animals, human beings and the gods alike as the 'I'. It is by the reflection of this pure consciousness that the mind, sense organs and the body which are insentient, appear to be sentient. External objects are perceived only because of this. This Self is, however, concealed by this very mind, senses and body which are illuminated by it, just as the Sun is concealed by the clouds. A person of perfect realization and wisdom due to his complete and clear understanding ever meditates in his mind on this supreme consciousness. Such a person is the real preceptor. This is my perfect conviction.
