The knots of the heart – “When, my dear, Atman is seen…”

When all the knots of the heart are untied, then and there the mortal man becomes immortal. This is the whole teaching.

    Katha Up. – 6.15

When, my dear, Atman is seen, heared about, reflected upon and contemplated on, all this universe becomes known.     (Yajnavalkya teaching his wife Maitreyi)

Brihadaryanika Up. – 4.5.6
