1.1: In the Early Morning I remember (i.e. meditate on) the Pure Essence of the Atman shining within my Heart, ... 1.2: ... Which gives the Bliss of Sacchidananda (Existence-Consciousness-Bliss essence), which is the Supreme Hamsa (symbolically a Pure White Swan floating in Chidakasha) and takes the mind to the state of Turiya (the fourth state, Superconsciousness), 1.3: Which knows (as a witness beyond) the three states of Dream, Waking and Deep Sleep, always,
1.4: That Brahman which is without any division shines as the I; and not this body which is a collection of Pancha Bhuta (Five Elements).
