At whose behest does the mind think? Who bids the body live? Who makes the tongue speak? Who is that effulgent being that directs the eye to form and color and the ear to sound?
The Self is ear of the ear, mind of the mind, speech of speech. He is also breath of the breath, and eye of the eye. Having given up the false identification of the Self with the senses and the mind, and knowing the Self to be Brahman, the wise, on departing this life, become immortal.
Him the eye does not see, nor the tongue express, nor the mind grasp. Him we neither know nor are able to teach. Different is He from the known, and different is He from the unknown. So have we heard from the wise.
