' Atma-Upadesa ~ Teaching About or of the Self '
What has no basis in reality can never hide what exists;
Experience vouches for this; asserting the reality
Of what exists, at every step, by existence all is enveloped:
The body and other things thus have pure being for content.
The effort that is made in view of something dear to one
As ordained too, remaining always constant and same
There is a dear value, unborn, unspent, unpredicable,
One and secondless, which ever endures as one's happiness.
