“The little space within the heart is as great as the vast universe.
The heavens and the earth are there, and the sun and the moon and the stars. Fire and lightening and winds are there, and all that now is and all that is not.”
Swami Prabhavananda, The Upanishads: Breath from the Eternal

“That which is not comprehended by the mind but by which the mind comprehends—know that...”
Swami Prabhavananda, The Upanishads

“As the sun, revealer of all objects to the seer, is not harmed by the sinful eye, nor by the impurities of the objects it gazes on, so the one Self, dwelling in all, is not touched by the evils of the world. (The Upanishads: Breath of the Eternal, pg. 35)”
Swami Prabhavananda, The Upanishads
