The realization of what
The realization of what we Buddhists call impermanence.
The realization we talk about in the Buddha-dharma is something that has to be accomplished by the individual. No one else can do it for us.
When we contemplate death and the impermanence of life, our minds automatically begin to take an interest in spiritual achievements.
Some people, sweet and attractive, and strong and healthy, happen to die young. They are masters in disguise teaching us about impermanence.
The endeavoring transcendentalists, who are situated in self-realization, can see all this clearly. But those whose minds are notdeveloped and who are not situated in self-realization cannot see what is taking place, though they may try to. (15.11)
A person is said to be established in self-realization and is called a yogi [or mystic] when he is fully satisfied by virtue of acquired knowledge and realization. Such a person is situated in transcendence and is self-controlled. He sees everything –whether it be pebbles, stones or gold — as the same. (6.8)
