• Nirvana Shatakam by Adi Shankara

    I am neither the mind, nor the intellect,
    nor the ego, nor the mind stuff.
    I am neither the body, nor the changes of the body.
    I am neither the senses of hearing, taste, smell or sight.
    Nor am i ether, the earth, the fire, the air.
    I am existence absolute, knowledge absolute, bliss absolute. I am Shiva, I am Shiva.

    I am neither the Prana, nor the five vital airs.
    I am neither the materials of the body, nor the five sheaths.
    Neither am I the organs of action nor objects of the senses.
    I am existence absolute, knowledge absolute bliss absolute. I am Shiva, I am Shiva.

    I have neither aversion nor attachment, neither greed nor delusion,
    neither egotism nor envy. neither Dharma nor Moksha.
    I have neither desire nor object of desire.
    I am existence absolute, knowledge absolute, bliss absolute. I am Shiva, I am Shiva.

    I am neither sin nor virtue, neither pleasure nor pain,
    nor temple, nor worship, nor pilgrimage, nor scriptures.
    And I am neither the act of enjoying, the enjoyable nor the enjoyer.
    I am existence absolute, knowledge absolute, bliss absolute. I am Shiva, I am Shiva.

    I have neither death, nor fear of death, nor caste nor was I ever born,
    nor had i parents, friends and relations.
    I have neither Guru nor disciple.
    I am existence absolute, knowledge absolute, bliss absolute. I am Shiva, I am Shiva.

    I am untouched by the senses.
    I am neither Mukti nor knowable, I am without form,
    without limit, beyond space, beyond time.
    I am in everything, I am the basis of the universe, everywhere am I.
    I am existence absolute, knowledge absolute, bliss absolute. I am Shiva, I am Shiva.
