A wise man should, shankaracharta his intelligence, submerge, in the self all that is objective and should ever contemplate the one self that is like unlimited space.

Biju Jalal rated it it was amazing Jun 07, Realise That to be Brahman, the attainment of which leaves nothing more to be attained, the blessedness of which leaves no other blessing to be desired and the knowledge of which leaves nothing more to be known.
