"Wherefrom do all these worlds come? They come from
All beings arise from space, and into space they return;
space is indeed their beginning, and space is their final end."
"Even as a great fish swims along the two banks of a river,
first along the Eastern bank, and then the Western bank,
in the same way the Spirit of man moves along beside his two dwellings;
this waking world and the land of sleep and dreams."
is something beyond our mind which abides in silence.
It is the supreme mystery beyond thought.
Let one's mind and one's subtle body rest upon that, and not rest upon anything
God is sound and silence.
Attain therefore contemplation, contemplation in silence on him."
"The earth seems to rest in silent meditation;
and the waters and the sky and the heavens
seem all to be in meditation."
"On Earth, those who reach greatness
achieve it through concentration."
as a man who is asleep awakes,
but when he is asleep does not know he is going to awake,
so a part of the subtle invisible Spirit comes as a messenger to the body,

as bodiless within the bodies,
as unchanging among changing things, as great and omnipresent,
does never grieve.

nor by much learning."
"It is true that the body is mortal, that it is under the power of death,
but it is also the dwelling place of Atman, the Spirit of immortal life. ...
when a man is in the joy of the spirit, he is free from all bondage,
the bondage of pleasure and pain."
"From joy all beings have come, by joy they all live,
joy they all return."
"Where there is joy, there is creation.
Where there is no joy, there is no
Know the nature of joy."
"He is everlasting and
infinite in the great and infinite in the small.
He is the Eternal whom the sages see as the source of all creation."
