ISAVASYOPANISHAD

Oh Sun, who art our Nourisher, Giver of Knowledge, Dispenser of Justice, Giver of light, Son of the Creator, disperse thy rays, draw in thy light, so that I may be enabled to behold thy most beautiful form. I am that same Person as makes thee who thou art.

16

As for my body:

My body will be reduced to ashes and my breath will join the deathless moving Winds. Oh Mind, remember thy acts.

17

The formula-I am the person that is seen m that refulgent form-occurs slightly modified in Chhandogya Upanishad also. The insistence is on the realization of the all-inclusive Oneness of the Soul, the Universe. The Spirit in the Sun is the same as myself! A daily repetition and contemplation of this truth is prescribed as an aid in life to detachment, elevation of Spirit and Self-realization.

4. Vidya and Avidya are phrases presenting considerable difficulty and the context does not help to clarity doubts. But I venture to think that the purport of the two slokas is what I have given above.
