    Brahman creates the game of life by breaking Himself into parts that undergo transformation and extinction. Yet while he takes on all the roles required by the game, He also always remains free of the game and intact as Brahman.

    Brahman, , , Kena Upanishad, ,   


    That which speech does not illumine, but Which illumines speech:
    know that alone to be the Brahman, not this which people worship here.

    That which cannot be thought by mind, but by Which, they say, mind is able to think:
    know that alone to be the Brahman, not this which people worship here.

    That which is not seen by the eye, but by Which the eye is able to see:
    know that alone to be the Brahman, not this which people worship here.

    That which cannot be heard by the ear, but by Which the ear is able to hear:
    know that alone to be Brahman, not this which people worship here.

    That which none breathes with the breath, but by Which breath is in–breathed:
    know that alone to be the Brahman, not this which people worship here.

    Kena Updanishad

    janmādy asya yataḥ

    “Now, therefore, one should desire to inquire about the Brahman. Brahman is He from Whom
    everything emanates.”
