9:I am Brahma.

I am Brahma. Treasure of Knowledge With Folded Hands
Everything is done by Lord Panduranga.   The harmony of Nature
Know Ye! my heart.   Introduction of the SOUL   Mahalaxmi Has Blessed Me
On seeing one's own SOUL HYMN OF LOVE FOR GOD.
Ode in praise of Mahalaxmi


Now I have understood this thing. In all the living things
and there is but one soul, and like a pilgrim goes from one
pilgrimage centre to the other. So also the soul is on an
eternal journey of the spirit.

Mother if someone wants to know about the 'Brahma' form of the soul,
when and how can he come to know about it?

Well it is like this. When someone goes on a pilgrimage to Pandharpur,
where there is this statue of Lord Panduranga , and when one sees
the statue, the true pilgrim realises that it is not just a small
statue, but a representation of the infinite God. Something similar
could happen at the end of the journey of the living life on earth.

Song 1 :

Aham Brahmasmi
I am Brahma

When I looked at you with humility
Oh! Lord Panduranga 2
I realized that though your statue is dark and small
You represent the infinite 'Brahma' . ||1||

The pilgrim's journey to your temple is arduous,
But it has a sweet end
My heart blossoms with joy
Realizing this place is 'Jagrut' 3 (blessed) ||2||

So also, life's journey is worthy
Say the saints and I realize in the end
I myself am a living manifestation
Of the infinite ‘Brahma’ God. ||3||

1. Aham Brahmasmi : highest of states of 'I am Brahma'
in which the individual self dissolves inseperably in Brahma
2. Panduranga : Diety at Pandharpur, called as Panduranga or Vitthala.
3. Jagrut : a blessed place
