The Oldest and Greatest

 IMG_1699[1]

Om.
He who knows what is the oldest and
greatest becomes himself the oldest
and greatest. The prana(1), indeed,
is the oldest and greatest.

(1) The prana (breath) is said to be among the oldest of sense organs
because, while the child is in the womb, the prana functions
first and then the sense-organs begin to function.
