(Translated as in Finger Pointing to the Moon on CD-ROM)
The sutra
Thus, through the statements like tattvamasi, that art thou, to pursue the meanings such as oneness of jiva, the embodied soul, and brahma, the absolute reality, is shravana, the listening. And to reasonably pursue the meaning of whatever has been listened to is manan, contemplation.
Establishing your mind in the indubitable meaning attained through this listening and contemplation, attunement with it is nididhyasan, assimilation.
Dropping the meditator and the meditation respectively, when the meditated-upon, the goal, remains as the only objective and the mind becomes still like the flame of a lamp in a windless place -- this is called samadhi, the enlightenment.
English part:
The sutra
The enquiry about the oneness of the soul and the Brahman to the great saying like "that art thou" is known as the right listening.
And thinking in the right way on the meaning of what has been listened to is known as right contemplation.
And to harmonize and center one's mind with the meaning, shorn of all doubts -- that which is derived from right listening and right contemplation is what is known as meditation.
And finally when the meditator and meditation are eliminated, and only you are fixed, meditating upon the means, then the mind becomes unwavering and settled like a flame in a place without air. And that is called samadhi.
