   While corrupt conduct brings one nothing but 

   Good conduct is the seed in virtue’ field;
   Wicked conduct"s harvest is never ending

2. Having renounced every selfish desire,
   He has found his rest in the lord of love.
   Wisdom is the staff that supports him
   Those who take a mendicant’s staff while
   Are still at the mercy of their senses
   Cannot escape enormous suffering.
   The illuminated man knows this truth of

                    Paramahamsa Upanishad

 3. Indeed how wonderful,
    I adore myself.

    For I have taken form
    But I am still one. 

    Neither coming nor going,
    Yet I am still everywhere.

                    Ashtavakra Gita 2:12

 4. In dark night those for whom,
    The world without alone is real;
    in night. 
    Darker still, for whom the world within
    Alone is real.The first leads to a life
    Of action, the second to the life of 
    But those who combine action with meditation 
    cross the sea of death through action
    And enter into mortality 
    Through the practice of meditation.
    So have we heard from the wise.

                    Isha Upanishad

5. Behold, Arjuna, a million divine forms, with 
   an infinite variety of color and shape. Behold 
   the gods of the natural world, and many more 
   wonders never revealed before.Behold the entire 
   cosmos turning within my body, and the other 
   things you desire to see.

   But these things cannot be seen with your 
   physical eyes;therefore I give you spiritual
   vision to perceive my majestic power.

   and form and you and me; casting a smell of 
   pleasure and pain.

                    Shevtashvatara  Upanishad 

7. Brahman is indivisible and pure;
   Realize Brahman and go beyond all change.
          He is immanent and trancendant

   And  declare there are no separate minds.
   They have but realized what they always are.

                    Amritabindu Upanishad

8. "In that state, free from attachment,they
    move at will laughing,playing and rejoicing.
    They know the Self is not this body but only 
    tied to it for a time as an ox is tied to its

9.  As the man and the woman in me
    unite in love, 
     the brilliant beauty
     balanced on the two-petalled lotus
     within me
     dazzles my eyes.
     The rays
     outshine the moon
     and the jewels  
     glowing on the hoods of snakes.

     My skin and bone
     are turned to gold.
     I am the reservoir of love
     alive as the waves.

    There is only one.

    There was and there will be
    Only one.

    Be happy.
