This Is The Truth

ancient indian mandala

This is The Truth: As, from a blazing fire, sparks
essentially akin to it fly forth by the thousand, so also,
my good friend, do various beings come forth from
the imperishable Brahman and unto Him again return.

He is the self-luminous and formless Purusha,
uncreated and existing both within and without.
He is devoid of prana, devoid of mind, pure,
and higher than the supreme Imperishable.

Of Him are born prana, mind, all the sense-organs,
akasa, air, fire, water, and earth, which supports all.

The heavens are His head; the sun and moon, His eyes;
the quarters, His ears; the revealed Vedas, His speech;
the wind in His breath; the universe, His heart. From His
feet is produced the earth. He is, indeed,
the inner Self of all beings.
