Taking pity on him, Adi Shankara went up to the scholar and advised him not to waste his time on grammar at his age but to turn his mind to God in worship and adoration, which would only save him from this vicious cycle of life and death. This work of Adi Shankara underscores the view that devotion Bhakti govidam God, Govinda, is a vastly important part of general spirituality, as emphasised by Bhakti Yoga and the Bhakti movement.

Oh fool! Rules of Grammar will not save you at the time of your death. Give up your thirst to amass wealth, devote your mind to thoughts to the Real. Be content with what comes through actions already performed in the past. Bodies are flesh, fat and blood. Do not fail to remember this again and again in your mind. Know that the whole world remains a prey to disease, ego and grief.

But no one at home cares to even have a word with him when his body totters due to old age. But when the soul departs from the body, even his wife runs away in fear of the corpse. Youth is lost by attachment to woman. Old age passes away by thinking over many past things. Who is your son? Strange is this samsara. Of whom are you? Where have you come from? Brother, ponder over these truths.

From self-settledness comes Jivan Mukti. What use is a lake which has no water? Where are the relatives when wealth is gone? Where is samsara when the Truth is known? Each one of these are destroyed within a minute. Free yourself from the illusion of the world of Maya and attain the timeless Truth. Time plays and life ebbs away. But the storm of desire never leaves. Why this engrossment in thoughts of wealth? Is there no one to guide you?

There is only one thing in three worlds that can save you from the ocean from samsara. Get into that boat of satsangha quickly. Seeing truth revealed before them, still the foolish ones see it not. Even then the attachment is strong and he clings firmly to fruitless hope. Still in his heart, he is a wretched puppet at the hands of passions. Yet, devoid of jnana, nothing can give mukthi even at the end of a hundred births. Give up all attachments and renounce all comforts.

Blessed with such vairagya, could any fail to be content? But only he whose mind steadily delights in Brahman enjoys bliss, no one else. He then will have no altercation with Yama. It is indeed hard to cross this boundless ocean of samsara. Oh Murari! Redeem me through Thy mercy. Freed from vice and virtue, onward he wanders. One who lives in communion with God enjoys bliss, pure and uncontaminated, like a child and as someone intoxicated. Who am I? From where do I come? Who is my mother, who is my father?

Ponder thus, look at everything as essenceless and give up the world as an idle dream. Your anger and impatience is meaningless.

If you wish to attain the quality of Vishnu soon, have Sama Bhaava always. See yourself in everyone and give up all feelings of duality completely. Ponder over your real nature. Fools are they who are blind to the Self. Cast into hell they suffer there endlessly. Take delight to be with the noble and the holy. Distribute your wealth in charity to the poor and the needy. Though death brings an end to everything, man does not gives up the sinful path. Reflect thus at all times. A rich man fears even his own son.

This is the way of wealth everywhere. Chant the holy name of God and silence the turbulent mind. Perform these with care, with extreme care. May thou be soon free from Samsara. Through disciplined senses and controlled mind, thou shalt come to experience the indwelling Lord of your heart!
