Mundaka Upanishad
    #993083 - 10/25/02 06:32 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Self is everywhere, shining forth from all beings,
vaster than the vast, subtler than the most subtle,
unreachable, yet nearer than breath, than heartbeat.

Eye cannot see it, ear cannot hear nor tongue utter it;
only in deep absorption can the mind, grown pure and silent,
merge with the formless truth.

He who finds it is free; he has found himself;
he has solved the great riddle; his heart is forever at peace.

Whole, he enters the Whole.

Perceiving the truth, he becomes the truth;
he passes beyond all suffering, beyond death;
all the knots of his heart are loosed.

The Upanishads are great. I read them often, and seem to get something new each time.

The Upanishads were written by sages of India between the eighth and fourth centuries BC. They are the final part of the Vedas and the basis for the philosophy of Vedanta, which means the end of the Vedas. The Vedas are the most ancient and sacred scripture of India; the name signifies wisdom. The Rig Veda gives the verses or hymns. The Yajur Veda has sacrificial formulas. The Sama Veda contains the melodies of the chants. The Atharva Veda is magic formulas. The four parts of the Vedas are the following: Samhita is the main part and has hymns, prayers, and litanies; the Brahmanas discuss the meaning of the sacrificial rites and ceremonies; the Aranyakas are forest-texts; and the Upanishads are the teachings of the sages on mystical experience. As part of the Vedas the Upanishads are considered revealed scripture.
