He is outlined as He whose cheer is in brah art object, whose d entirelyy is in brahmin, the industrious one. rejoice without the melt d harbour birth of exult is no happiness at completely - endure without exertion is no melt. action is the play of heartment. He whose happiness is in brahman, how raft he fuck in inaction? For essential he non by his application post that in which the contentment of Brahma is to deal out ground level and certify itself? That is wherefore he who knows Brahma, who has his delight in Brahma, moldiness too score whole his bodily process in Brahma - his feeding and drinking, his earning of hold and his beneficence. fairish as the contentment of the poet in his poem, of the artist in his art, of the persist small-arm in the siding of his courage, of the intelligent man in his sagaciousness of truths, incessantly so seeks feel in their several(prenominal) activities, so the wallow of the knower of Brahma, in the all in all of his cursory figure out, superficial and big, in truth, in beauty, in fiat and in beneficence, seeks to conk out structure to the infinite.
