श्रीरामगीता - శ్రీరామగీతా

प्रत्यक्परोक्षादि विरोधमात्मनो-
र्विहाय सङ्गृह्य तयोश्चिदात्मताम् ।
संशोधितां लक्षणया च लक्षितां
ज्ञात्वा स्वमात्मानमथाद्वयो भवेत् ॥ २६॥

ప్రత్యక్పరోక్షాది విరోధమాత్మనో-
ర్విహాయ సఙ్గృహ్య తయోశ్చిదాత్మతామ్ ।
సంశోధితాం లక్షణయా చ లక్షితాం
జ్ఞాత్వా స్వమాత్మానమథాద్వయో భవేత్ ॥

Swami ChinmayAnanda's English translation for the above verse:
Rejecting the difference of nearness and remoteness, and so on... between jIvAtma and paramAtma, one should know one's own nature as that of pure consciousness, arrived at through the inquiry and implied by the method of implication. Thereafter, realizing one's own true Self and Brahman, one should merge to become one with it.

In Adhyatma rAmAyaNa, uttara kAnDa, 5th sarga is called SrI rAma gItA. It has 62 verses and it is an instruction from Lord rAma to his brother LakshmaNa who is looking for surest path to supreme realization.
This verse is 26th SlOka in SrI rAma gIta.

pratyaksha-parOksha-Adi virOdham AtmanOH
vihAya; samgRhya tayOH cidAtmatAm
samSOdhirAm lakshaNayA ca lakshitAM
jnAtvA svamAtmAnam atha advayO bhavEt


My interpretation:
pratyaksham i.e, imminence and parOksham i.e, transcendence are virOdham mutually opposing qualities of Self. By vihAya giving up this contradictions within the description of Self, accepting the true nature of cidAtmatAm pure consciousness in them -- samSOdhitAm one should perform inquiry into its lakshaNayA quality as the goal and the one who is lakshitAm aiming at that goal. jnatvA Having realized svamAtmAnam the own Self as supreme, atha advayO bhavEt one should become non-dual .

Let one and all engage in such a great inquiry resulting in non-dual realization as instructed by Lord rAma. om tat sat.
