KENOPANISHAD

A man dreams that he is suffering from a mortal illness and is dying. He suffers pain and even death. But the moment he wakes up, he is cured and regains life. So does Jnana give immortality to man. The third chapter of this Upanishad is an allegory to illustrate that everything rests on the Supreme Spirit. It is that which gives heat to Fire, and energy to Motion, and the power of knowing to individual knowledge, however great.

All beings are like electric lamps that glow by the power that is received by them from the Supreme Being, them selves not knowing it.  The gods were once elated at a great victory, and the Brahman appeared before them. They could not recognize or understand the vision. Agni, Vayu and Indra were sent to approach and understand Him.
