The seer of sight, the hearer of hearing…


Ushasta, son of Cakra said: “you have spoken of it as one might have said, ‘such and such is an ox, such and such is a horse’. Explain to me the actually immediate Brahman itself, the inmost Self –  which is He, Yajnavalkya, the inmost of all?”

“You cannot see the seer of the sight; you cannot think the thinker of thinking; you cannot hear the hearer of hearing; you cannot understand the understander of understanding. This is your inmost Self; everything else than this is perishable’ Thereupon Ushasta, son of Cakra, kept silent.

Br.Upanishad, 3-4-2
