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.
