Of what avail is knowing things
Other than the Self? And the Self being known,
What other thing is there to know?
That one light that shines as many selves,
Seeing this Self within
As Awareness’ lightning flash;
The play of Grace; the ego’s death;
The blossoming of bliss.
[‘Self-Knowledge’ (‘Atma-Vidya’): 5; “Collected Works”, ch. 8.]
