How Does Jiiva Become Shiva is a discourse given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti on 1978 September 19 in Patna, India. This discourse is the eleventh chapter of Ananda Vacanamrtam Part 2.[1]


Jiṋátvá devaḿ, that is, when one knows, when one comes in contact with the Supreme Entity, mucyate sarvapáshaeh, that is, one gets liberated, one gets emancipated from all mundane bondages. And when one gets liberated from all the bondages, then one no more remains jiiva, one becomes Shiva.

Shrii Shrii Anandamurti

Anandamurti starts the discourse by saying that the Creator has unlimited expressions that cannot be perceived through a microcosmic mind. He then explains that human sensory organs can only see or hear some structures but not other expressions of the Supreme, as in the case of luminous bodies. Anandamurti goes on explaining that only when the unit being comes to know the Supreme, liberation from all bondages is possible.[1]
