The mind, intellect, ego, ether, air, fire, water, and earth are the eightfold transformation of My nature.
He who knows me as his own divine Self breaks through the belief that he is the body and is not reborn as a separate creature. Such a one is united with me. Delivered from selfish attachment, fear, and anger, filled with me, surrendering themselves to me, purified in the fire of my being, many have reached the state of unity in me.
Earth, water, fire, air, ether, mind, intelligence and false ego-all together these eight contitute my separted material energies

I see You with Your crown, club, discus and a mass of radiance, difficult to behold, shining all around with immeasurable brilliance of the sun and the blazing fire.
