immortal

SHRA VANAA YAAPIBAHUBHIRYO NA LABHYAH
SHRUNWANTO API BAHABOYAM NA VIDYUH
AASHCHARYO ASYA BAKTAA KUSHALO ASYA LABDHAA
AASHCHARYO GNYAATAA KUSHALAANU SHITAH


(KATHOPANISAD; 1-2-36-7)

General Meaning:

The perception of that soul, the inner, immortal self is not possible only by hearing any number of instructions and lectures. Many do not understand, even when hearing too many sounds. The teacher has to be wonderful and the recipient also has to be wonderful. Wonderful is that person who experiences it under the instructions of a Realized Master.

(KENOPANISAD;CH-1; V-2)

General Meaning:

God is the ear of the ear, mind of the mind, the speech of the speech, the life energy of life and the eye of the eyes. Hence the wise people, after renunciation of their self identification with the ego and the senses, renounce this world and attain immortality.

(SWETASWATARO UPANISAD; CH-2; V-14)

General Meaning:

Similar to a lump of gold, covered with dirt and dust, shine again, when cleaned by fire, water or any purifying agent, in the same way, when a person, realizes his immortal self, as the inner self of all, he feels, he has attained his goal and this goes beyond sorrows and sufferings.

May God and the Great Masters, Bless, Guide, Protect and Inspire you.
