Kena Upanishad on Brahman

Everything is Brahman – this is the great teaching. May I never deny Brahman. May Brahman never deny me. May there be no denial. May there be no denial of me. Let the great truths of the Upanishads live I me, who delights in the Self.
By who does the mind think? By whom do the eyes see and the ears hear? By whose desire does life begin to move? By whose wish does a person begin to speak? – The answer is Brahman, which is wholeness. Brahman is the ear of the ear, and the mind of the mind. It is the breath of the breath, and the eye of the eye.
Brahman cannot be expressed by speech, but it is that by which we are able to speak.
Brahman cannot be though by the mind, but it is that by which the mind thinks.
Brahman cannot be seen by the eyes, but is that by which the eyes see.
Brahman cannot be heard by the ears, but it is that by which the ears hear.
Kena Upanishad
