MUNDAKOPANISHAD

Truth is the only pathway to God, and the seers pursue this to reach Him. This emphatic dependence on Truth is the dominating characteristic of the Upanishads.  The Lord is not to be apprehended by the senses, but only by the mind into which all the senses have been drawn in. All thought is inter woven with the senses, and it is only when the mind is released from all this and is in a state of perfect freedom and tranquility, that the Lord reveals Himself.

Not by the eyes nor by speech or through other senses can He be apprehended: not even by austerities or ceremonials. He whose mind is pure and serene can by meditation attain a vision of the indivisible. The Subtle Spirit dwelling within, into which the fivefold life has entered, can be realized by the understanding. If the understanding that is pierced and pervaded by the senses is purified, then the spirit reveals itself unto it.
