(I prey that all these three be annihilated/alminated).
486. A saint, whose mind is absorbed in desireless union with self (Nirvi-kalpa-samadhi) gets manifested with the fire of self (atma-rupa agni) which destroys all the past accumulated karma good and bad both; in the manner, in which (a piece of) salt gets dissolved in contact with (Conjunction with/union with) water.

490. A saint should condmen (Garha) his past mis conducts (bad-conducts) should pray for being forgiven by all the living beings; should give up carelessness and should by concentration of his mind, meditate for so long as his past accumulated karmas are not destroyed.
491. There is no difference in villages with dense population and lovely forests to such contemplating saints who have stilled (steadied) the vibrations of their minds, speeches and bodies and whose minds have become absolutely immobile/static in (or, due to) self meditation.
492. A saint desirous of self union should neither love (e.g. words forms etc.) pleasant sense subjects nor malign unpleasant sense subjects.

498. A meditating saint should reflect upon three ways (Avasthas);
1. Pimdastha, 2. Padastha, and 3. Rupatita.
The subjects matter of pimidastha concentration is :-
“Chhadmasthatva/Deha-vipasyatva”; that of padastha concentration is omniscient); Kevalita/perfect knowledge i.e. concentration on connotations (interpretations) given by the omni scent); and that of Rupatita concentration is supreme status of soul (siddhatva) or pure soul (shuddhatma).
499. The lord (Bhagwan) used to meditate-after being seated in the posture of setting on the haws or that with soles of feet touching the ground (or other postures by getting still (sthir/motionless). He used to concentrated on objects of this world that is height low, and slanting. His vision (dristi) was fixed on self union. He was intention less (Saukalpa-mukta/purposeless/desireless).
