Kena Upanishad Part 2


Master  ~  If you think ”I know well”, little truth you know. You only perceive that appearance of Brahman that lies in the senses and is in you. Pursue your meditation.

Disciple ~ I mean to know. I do not imagine ”I know him well” and yet I cannot say ”I know him not”. Who of us knows this knows him; and not who says ”I know him not”.

He comes to the thought of those who know him beyond thought, not to those who imagine he can be attained by thought. He is unknown to the learned and known to the simple.

He is known in the ecstasy of an awakening which opens the door of life eternal. By the Self we obtain power, and by vision we obtain Eternity.

For a man who has know him, the light of truth shines; for a man who has not known, there is darkness. The wise who have seen him in every being, on leaving this life, attain life immortal.


Generally just Being. Nothing in particular, no claims to fame. I like gardening and the sea, nature, art in all forms from poetry to films and everything in between, and being in the company of my family.
