Quotes from Atharva Veda

O man! May there be conformity in your lifestyle and may there be equal share of food and drink for all in the bounty of Mother Nature.

He can be seen by the grace of wisdom and purity of mind and in the silence of contemplation. This invisible Atman can be seen by the mind wherein the five senses are resting.
