Upanishads on Our Infinite Nature

A collection of wisdom, quotes and teachings on our infinite nature from the Upanishads.

That jiva is to be known as of the size of the tip of a hair, imagined to be divided into a hundredth of its hundredth part; yet it happens to be infinite. (Shvetashvatara Upanishad, 5.9)

He who has realized and intimately known the Atman that has entered this perilous and inaccessible place (the body), is the maker of the universe, for he is the maker of all, (all is) his Atman, and he again is indeed the Atman (of all).  (Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, 4.4.13)

(Brahman is) without doubt, endless, beyond reason and analogy, beyond all proofs and causeless, knowing which the wise one becomes free. (Amritabindu Upanishad, 9)

This one is the Lord of all; this one is omniscient; this one is the inner director (of all); this one is the source of all; this one is verily the place of origin and dissolution of all beings. (Mandukya Upanishad, 6)
