Quotes from Isavasya Upanishad

I am that very person that is in the Sun.He who sees everything and all beings in the Atman (Self), and the Atman (Self) in all beings, feels no hatred by virtue of that realization. When, to the man of realization, all beings become one with his own Atman, his own Self, then what delusion and what sorrow can there be for that seer of oneness?Isavasya Upanishad
