विज्ञानभरैितन्त्रम V्ijnana BhairavaTantra

My dear friend SwamiJi told me about this beautiful text that is a conversation between Lord Shiva and his consort Parvati. In it, he conveys 112 meditation methods to achieve enlightenment. I find this one particularly poignant. I wish I could read it in Sanskrit. Perhaps in the next life. ;-) 

इन्द्रजाऱमयं विश्वं व्यस्तं िा वचिकमिध त ।

भ्रमद्वाध्यायत्सिंऩश्यतश्चसखोद्गम्॥१०२॥

Meditating on the manifest world as imagined or illusive, like a magic show or a painting, and seeing all existence as transient, happiness arises.
