' Atma-Upadesa ~ Teaching About or of the Self '
Nature, dividing, at one time as the enjoyer of everything
Outside, immanent as transcendent, it shining looms;
At another time again by 'this-ness' expanded
It spreads out before as the enjoyable universe.
Like the fire that emerges out of churning sticks
That boundless wisdom that from within those who seek prevails
As the Sun ascendant in pure reason's firmament supreme.
It stays burning and to its flames consuming, fuel everything becomes.
