The messenger sent by the Divine Spirit is known by the name of wise discrimination (viveka,wisdom). It shines as coolly in the cave of the human heart as moonlight does in a clear sky.

Wise discrimination awakens and instructs the brutish and lustful soul to wisdom and saves the unwise soul from the turbulent ocean of this world.

The Vedas and Vedic scriptures call this enlightening and intellectual spirit residing in the human heart the adorable cosmic sound of Om.

This Holy Spirit is propitiated daily by men and the naaga trice, and by gods and demigods, by their prayers and oblations, by their austerities and alms-giving, and by their sacrificial rites and recitals of the scriptures.
