KENOPANISHAD

The limitation of human knowledge, when trying to comprehend the Supreme Being is brought out in the above epigram.

Not by reasoning but only by an awakening can we get a vision of the Supreme Spirit. Life, in relation to the Ultimate Reality, is like a state of sleep. Reason, in respect of Ultimate Reality, is like the impossible conception of a sleeping man trying to know what he is about, without waking up. As sleep is to waking, so is ordinary life to the state of realization.

Self-discipline gives strength of spirit: To one so strengthened, knowledge gives immortality:

The Self is itself immortal, and one has but to know it to become immortal.
