The 25 Principles of Sankhya
Prakrit Mahat Ahamkara Tanmatra Bhotaan
Api Hridapi Dasakhi Poorusha Pancha Vimsa
The Five Subtle Essences
The Five Great Elements
The Five Sense Organs
The Five Knowledge Organs
These are the 24 principles of Sankhya. And Purusha, the Absolute Self, is the 25th !
Sanniveso Maya Proktho Ya Kala Pancha Vimsaka
Time is the All devouring Power
Of the Absolute; the foolish Ego
Who is said to be the Experiencer
Is afraid of Time Almighty !
Prabhavan Pourusham Prahoo
Kalameke yatho bhayam
Karthu prakriti peeyusha
Outside as the all consuming Time
Within as the individual Self
He moves all beings with his Magic
And is the Lord Supreme of the Universe !
Antha Purusha Roopena
Kala Roopena yo Bahi
Bhagavan Athma Mayaya
The Knower of these 25 princilples is freed from Bondage !
Ithi vividha vibhago muchyathe sow prakritya
Kapila thanu rithithvam Deva hootyanyagadi
So Thou revealed to Thy mother, Devahoothi, in Thy incarnation as Kapila !
