The Self cannot be attained by the study of the Vedas, not by intelligence April 29, 2010


“The Self cannot be attained by the study of the Vedas, not by intelligence nor by much hearing. Only by him who seeks to know the Self can It be attained. To him the Self reveals Its own nature.”

Katha Upanishad

 

The firm control of the senses, is what is called yoga August 8, 2008


“7. Beyond the senses is the mind, beyond the mind is the intellect, higher than the intellect is the Great Atman, higher than the Great Atman is the Unmanifest.

8. Beyond the Unmanifest is the Person, all-pervading and imperceptible. Having realized Him, the embodied self becomes liberated and attains Immortality.

9. His form is not an object of vision; no one beholds Him with the eye. One can know Him when He is revealed by the intellect free from doubt and by constant meditation. Those who know this become immortal.

10. When the five instruments of knowledge stand still, together with the mind and when the intellect does not move, that is called the Supreme State.

11. This, the firm Control of the senses, is what is called yoga. One must then be vigilant; for yoga can be both beneficial and injurious.”

Chapter III-Katha Upanishad-
