<< Chapter 6 verse 29


yo māṁ paśyati sarvatra
sarvaṁ ca mayi paśyati
tasyāhaṁ na praṇaśyāmi
sa ca me na praṇaśyati

‘Whoso perceiveth Me everywhere, and perceiveth all in Me, to him I am never lost, nor to Me is he lost.'[2. Cp. IV-35. —(Nehābhikrama etc.) ‘lost’ means ‘lost sight of’, for says Amarakośa: vināśas-syād-adarśanam.]

Even more advanced (in yoga) is he who approaches nearer to My nature, in the manner declared in the Śruti:—

‘Stainless, he attains to supreme equality (or sameness).'[3. ‘Nirañjanah paramam sāmyam-upaiti’. Mund: Up: iii-1-3.]

Whoso thus realizes that ātma-nature, when viewed in its essence, in its state of purity or exemption from all good and evil, is equal, or comparable, to Me; whoso, so seeing, realizes again that I am in all ātma-principle, and realizes that all ātma-principle is in Me, that is to say, realizes that when the nature of ātma is known in one instance (as described) it is known in other cases; to him, who so realizes his own ātma-nature, I do not veil Myself, for My nature is the same as his. On My part, I take him who sees the equality of his own nature with Me as My Ownself; I look upon him to be equal to Myself, and ever reveal Myself to his vision.[4. Equivalent to: ‘I seek him who seeks Me’.]

The still more mature stage of meditation is (now) described:—
