Upadesa Sahasri Quotes

Upadesa Sahasri contains the teachings of Adi Shankaracharya in both prose and verse form.
When you say I am Brahmin’s son belonging to such and such a family, you have identified the Atman, which is free from caste, family and purifying ceremonies, with body. This is ignorance.
The highest atman is not afflicted with any attributes of transmigratory existence.
The highest atman is the evolver of the unevolved name and form merely by being existent since it is possessed of inconceivable power.
Foam is neither identical with water nor absolutely different from water since it is not seen without water. But water is clear and different from foam which is of the nature of dirt. Likewise, the highest Atman is different from name and form which corresponds to foam, Atman is pure, clear and different in essence from it.
