Quotes from Hastamalaka

I am the conscious Self, ever-present and associated with everything in the same manner as heat is always associated with fire. I am that eternal, undifferentiated, unshaken Consciousness, on account of which the insentient mind and senses function, each in its own manner.I am that conscious Self of whom the ego is not independent as the image in a mirror is not independent of the object reflected.I am the unqualified, conscious Self, existing even after the extinction of buddhi, just as the object remains ever the same even after the removal of the reflecting mirror.Hastamalaka (verses 4 to 6)(Source: Hastamalaka Translation by Sri Ramana Maharshi)
