heat.  Without deriving its light and heat from any other thing it is self-luminous, and is an object of terror to all luminous bodies.  The Eternal One endued with Divinity is beheld by Yogins (by their mental eye).  The body composed of the five grosser elements, that are themselves sprung from the five subtler ones,—­the latter, in their turn, originating in one homogeneous substance called Brahman—­is upheld (realised) in consciousness by both the creature-Soul endued with life and Iswara. (These two, during sleep and the universal dissolution, are deprived of consciousness).  Brahman on the other hand, which is never bereft of consciousness, and which is the Sun’s Sun, upholdeth both these two and also the Earth and the Heaven.  The Eternal One endued with Divinity is beheld by Yogins (by their mental eye).  The Seed upholdeth the two gods, the Earth and the Heaven, the Directions, and the whole Universe.  It is from that Seed that directions (points of the compass) and rivers spring, and the vast seas also have derived their origin.  The Eternal One endued with Divinity is beheld by Yogins (by their mental eye).  The body is like a car destined to destruction.  Its acts, however, are undying.  Tied to the wheels of that car (which are represented by the acts of past lives), the senses, that are as steeds, lead, through the region of consciousness, the man of wisdom towards that Increate and Unchangeable One, that One endued with Divinity is beheld by Yogins (by their mental eye).  The form of that One cannot be displayed by any comparison.  None ever beholdeth Him by the eye.  They that know him by the rapt faculties, the mind, and the heart, become freed from death.  The Eternal One endued with Divinity is beheld by Yogins (by their mental eye).  The stream of illusion is terrible; guarded by the gods, it hath twelve fruits.  Drinking of its waters and beholding many sweet things in its midst, men swim along it to and fro.  This stream flows from that Seed.  That Eternal One endued with Divinity is beheld by Yogins (by their mental eye).  Destined to sojourn to and fro, the creature-Soul, having reflected enjoyeth (in the other world) only half of the fruits of his acts.  It is that creature-Soul which is Iswara, pervading everything in the universe.  It is Iswara that hath ordained sacrifices.  That Eternal One endued with Divinity is beheld by Yogins (by their mental eye).  Souls divested of accidents, resorting to Avidya, which is like unto a tree of golden foliage, assume accidents, and take births in different orders according to their propensities.  That Eternal One endued with Divinity (in Whom all those Souls are united) is beheld by Yogins (by their mental eye).  Accidents (which coming in contact with Brahman make the latter assume many forms) raise the universe in its Fulness from that Brahman which is full.  Those accidents also, in their Fulness, arise from Brahman in its Fulness.  When one succeeds in dispelling all accidents from Brahman which is ever
