    Post Pearls of Wisdom from the Upanishads

    The word 'Upanishad' means 'to sit at the feet' [of a teacher].

    Let us listen to some pearls of wisdom from the teachers of the Upanishads;

    "There are demon-haunted worlds, regions of utter darkness.
    Whoever in life denies the Spirit falls into that darkness of death".
    [Isa Upanishad]

    "The face of truth remains hidden behind a circle of gold.
    Unveil it, O god of light, that I who love the true may see!
    O life-giving sun, off-spring of the Lord of creation, solitary seer of heaven! Spread thy light and withdraw thy blinding splendour that I may behold thy radiant form: that Spirit far away within thee is my own inmost spirit".
    [ib.,]

    "That sacred fire which is the means of attaining the infinite worlds, and is also their foundation, is hidden in the sacred place of the heart".
    [Katha Upanishad 1]

    "The fire of creation, the beginning of the worlds".
    [ib.,]

    "He knows the god of fire, the god who knows all things, and through knowledge and adoration he attains the peace supreme".
    [ib.,]

    "There is the path of joy, and there is the path of pleasure.
    Both attract the soul.
    Who follows the first comes to good; who follows pleasure reaches not the End.
    The two paths lie in front of man.
    Pondering on them, the wise man chooses the path of joy; the fool takes the path of pleasure".
    [ib., 2]

    Why are there beings at all, & why not rather nothing?
    [Leibniz/Heidegger]

    More Wise Words from the Upanishads;

    "Know the Atman [i.e., 'Self'] as Lord of a chariot; and the Body as the chariot itself".
    [Katha Upanishad 3]

    "Sages say the path is narrow and difficult to tread, narrow as the edge of a razor".
    [ib.,]

    "The pure eternal Spirit dwells in the castle of eleven gates of the body".
    [ib., 5]

    [the 'eleven gates' are of course the orifices of the human body]

    "After death, the soul may go to the womb of a mother and thus obtain a new body. It even may go into trees or plants, according to its previous wisdom and work".
    [ib.,]

    "When the five sense and the mind are still, and reason itself rests in silence, then begins the Path Supreme.
    This calm steadiness of the sense is called 'yoga'".
    [ib., 6]

    "When all the ties that bind the heart are unloosened, then a mortal becomes immortal".
    [ib.,]

    Hallo Bill!

    Here is The Gita!
    Brahma arpanam Brahma Havir
    Brahmagnau Brahmana Hutam|
    Brahma Eva Tena Gantavyam
    Brahma Karma Samadhina||

    Havamal:
    Wounded I hung on a wind-swept gallows
    For nine long nights,
    Pierced by a spear, pledged to Odhinn,
    Offered, myself to myself
    The wisest know not from whence spring
    The roots of that ancient rood.

    This is quite profound:
    From Ymir's sacrifice, Yama's forfeiting life eternal-then the Purusha lore.
