Discussion-5. "own Self is the Self in all" ....
But having gained Vidya in this very life, there is a period when we are to live in this world as Liberated soul, a Prophet, a God-man.
His duty is not thereafter to run away incognito into some secret cave of contemplation, there to enjoy the serene joys of his own realisation.
On the other hand, he has to fulfil his Self-realisation in and through his activities in the world outside.
Earlier we have seen, in mantram six and seven, that Self-realisation is not only in the experience that one's own Self is divine, but this realisation can be complete only when one realises that his own Self is the Self-in-all.
Unless we include and incorporate in our Self-experience the pluralistic world of imperfection also, the realisation cannot be called complete.
Rooted in the knowledge of our own Self, the Self-realised sage or seer becomes the most potent factor in the world to carve out for it a destiny of unquestionable brilliance and success.
