' Atma-Upadesa ~ Teaching About or of the Self '
That which is beyond count, on the one hand,
And what is ordinary and of the workaday world;
Other than these two, there is no other form at all
Either in memory, in sleep, or in the city on high.
As the ego sense enters into the double snake-rope-like scheme
Now as knowledge and now as the limited body agent,
It becomes sacred at one time or profane again
Thus, should he understand, the intuitive man.
