ISA UPANISHAD

 

1.All this is inhabited by God, whatever that moves here in this moving universe. Therefore by renunciation alone enjoy all things. Do not covet what belongs to others. 

2. Always by doing works one should wish to live here for a hundred years. There is no way other than this by which actions do not cling to you. 

3. Demonic verily are the worlds which are enveloped in blinding darkness. And to them go, after death,  those who harm their inner selves. 

5. It moves and It moves not. It is far and It is near. It is inside all this and also outside all this. 

6. He who sees all beings in his own self and his own self in all beings does not suffer from any repulsion by that experience.

7.  He who has known that all beings have become one with his own self, and he who has seen the oneness of existence, what sorrow and what delusion can overwhelm him?

8.  He has occupied all. He is radiant,  without body (incorporeal), without injury, without muscles, pure, untouched by evil. He is the seer, thinker, all pervading, self-existent, has distributed various objects, through endless years,  each according to it's inherent  nature. 

9.  Into blinding darkness enter those who worship ignorance and into greater darkness those who worship knowledge alone. 

10. Distinct they say is the result of knowledge and distinct they also say is the result of ignorance. This is what we heard from the wise who explained these matters  to us. 

11. He who knows both knowledge and ignorance together, crosses death through ignorance and attains immortality through knowledge. 

12. Into blinding darkness enter those who worship the unmanifest and into still greater darkness those who take delight in the manifest. 

13. Different indeed they declare what results from the manifest and distinct they say what comes out of the unmanifest. This is what we heard from the wise who explained these truths to us. 

14. He who understands both the manifest and the unmanifest together, crosses death through the unmanifest and attains immortality through the manifest. 

15. Covered with the golden disc is the face of truth. Uncover it, O Pusan, so that I who love truth may be able to see it.

16. O Pusan, the one seer, O controller, O sun, offspring of Prajapati, bring out your radiant rays and focus your  radiance so that I may be able to see the auspicious form of yours. Who so ever person is there beyond,  that also I am.

17. May this breath merge into the immortal breath. Then may the body end in ashes. AUM, remember what has been done, O intelligence remember what has been done, remember, remember. 

18. O Agni, O God, the knower of all our deeds, lead us along the right path to prosperity. Please take away from us our deceitful sins. Many prayers we offer you.

"The union of spirit and flesh creates a subtle new harmony.

Two unique worlds come together, and through our hearts unite into one.

For it is only in the voice of the flesh, that the song of the spirit is finally sung."

Jack Haas
