Many Aspects & Manifestations of the One
They see the Self, in the Self, by the Self !
All betrays him who sees all elsewhere,
Than in the Self! What can entire Veda,
Do for him, who sees all in Non-Self ?
The Eternian sees everything,
Under the aspect of Eternity,
Under the aspect of Zodiac,
And under the aspect of Love.
