The Highest Objective

साध्यसाधनखण्डे तृतीयोऽध्यायः

Chapter 3, Objective-means block

मुनय ऊचुः |

The sages said (to Lord Brahma)

अथ किं परमं साध्यं किं वा तत्साधनं परम् |
साधकः कीदृशस्तत्र तदिदं ब्रूहि तत्त्वतः || 17 ||

And what is the highest objective (that which is most worth obtaining) or what is that best means (of achieving the objective)? What kind of candidate/aspirant (the one who tries to obtain) there, tell that in detail.

ब्रह्मोवाच |

Brahma said (to the six sages)

साध्यं शिवपदप्राप्तिः साधनं तस्य सेवनम् |
साधकस्तत्प्रसादाद्योऽनित्यादिफलनिःस्पृहः || 18 ||

The highest objective is to attain the level of Shiva (union with God). The means is his service. The candidate/aspirant, thanks to it, is one who does not desire the non-permanent (of the material world) fruits.
