Disciple and Teacher

Disciple: “Master, teach me the knowledge of Brahman. I hear that this is the supreme knowledge, hidden and sacred, sought by the wise, and that he who seeks it is freed from impurities and attains the Supreme Being.”

Teacher: “Seek to know Brahman by acquiring faith in the word of the scriptures and in your Guru. Be devoted to Brahman. Meditate on him unceasingly. Not by work, nor by progeny, nor by wealth, but by devotion to him and by indifference to the world, does a man achieve immortality.

The supreme heaven shines in the lotus of the heart. They enter there who struggle and aspire. Understanding the spirit of the scriptural teachings, they renounce the world.”
