Sacred Jewels of Yoga
Brahman is the first cause
And the last refuge.
Brahman, the hidden Self in everyone,
does not shine forth.
He is revealed only to those
who keep their mind one-pointed
on the Lord of Love,
and thus develop a superconscious
manner of knowing.
Meditation enables them to go
deeper and deeper into consciousness,
from the world of words,
to the world of thoughts,
then beyond thoughts,
to wisdom in the Self.
— Katha Upanishad
