When the Supreme Devi is well pleased with the worship of the devotee, She turns into vichara [enquiry] in him and shines as the blazing Sun in the expanse of his Heart.
If once vichara takes root, the highest good has, for all practical purposes, been reached in this life. As long as vichara is absent from a human being, the most desirable form of birth, so long is the tree of life barren and therefore useless. The only useful fruit of life is vichara.
~ Sri Dattatreya ('Tripura Rahasya', Chapter II, 70 & 77)
