MUNDAKOPANISHAD

The Upanishad, i.e., knowledge received from the teacher, is the bow. The understanding Self should, like an arrow sharpened by devotion, be placed in it. Directing it at the target, viz., the Brahman, pulls the bowstring well with concentrated mind and you will hit the target. As a skilful archer, when aiming, makes his arrow merge in the target in his sight, and the two become but one and the same thing, so should your Self, the arrow, be merged by concentration in the target, viz., Brahman.

II-(2) 3, 4

When the pupil pulls the bowstring with steady aim, if the teacher asks him, "What do you see " the pupil should be able to reply truly that he sees nothing but the point he aims at. He must see neither bow, nor arrow, nor anything else but Brahman.
