The Self is the Absolute and
the Absolute is the Self.
The Self is the Absolute alone.
That which is covered with husk is paddy, and when de-husked becomes rice.
when under bondage of action one is the individual self, and
when the veil is removed one shines as the Absolute’.
Thus proclaim the scriptures, which further declare:
‘The mind should be drawn within and restrained in the Heart until the ego-sense, which sprouts as the ignorant mind,
is therein destroyed.
This is wisdom and meditation as well;
all else is mere lecturing and pedantry’,
in consonance with this final word,
one should fix the mind on Him,
be aware of Him and realize Him by every possible endeavour.
