But when the whole has become that Atman, who is seen by whom, who is to be heard by whom, who is to be welcomed by whom, who is to be known by whom?As to all water, the one goal is the ocean; as to all touch, the skin is the one centre; as of all smell, the nose is the one centre; as to all taste, the tongue is the one goal; as of all form, the eyes are the one goal; as of all sounds, the ears are the one goal; as of all thought, the mind is the one goal; as of all knowledge, the heart is the one goal; as of all work, the hands are the one goal; as salt put into the sea-water melts away, and we cannot take it back, even so this Universal Being is eternally infinite; all knowledge is in Him.You may also like to readBrihadaranyaka Upanishad Quotes – Sage Yajnavalkya and Maitreyi on SelfStory of True Knower of Brah…
