Random Teachings from the Upanishads

Here are a collection of teachings from various Upanishads.No one can understand the sound of a drum without understanding both the drum and the drummer.Let one therefore keep the mind pure for what a man thinks, that he becomes.The only way to know it is to become it.Self-knowledge is the best of all forms of knowledge; through it, one attains immortality.Know yourself, so what you’ve done won’t burn you. Nor will what you’ve left undone.As is the human body, so the cosmic body; as is the human mind, so the cosmic mind; as is the atom, so the Universe.The spirit down here in man and the spirit up there in the sun, in reality are only one spirit, and there is no other one.Out of abundance he took abundance and still abundance remained.In a world where everything changes the divine is everywhere present.Upanishads
