' Atma-Upadesa ~ Teaching About or of the Self '
As there is the law of energy remaining ever unspent
By outwardly directed action, there must needs be inwardly
A dear value that is inseparable from it, for which here
The action, is merely a symbol of outer recognition.
To one who has cut connection with the changeful body
There is nothing which surpasses in value his own Self:
As the interest that prevails in respect of oneself, as ordained also,
Never-ceasingly endures, the Self, eternal it is.
