Chapter-2.

Section-1.

Mantram-10. {  Brahmam  and  the  universe  are  ONE.  Knowing Brahmam destroys  the  knots  of  Ignorance. }



Purusha  evedam  visvam  karma

tapo  brahma  paramartam,

etad  yo  veda  nihitam  guhayam

so  vidya-granthim  vikiratiha  somya.




purusham  =  the  Lord;

eva  =  alone;

idam  =  this;

visvam  =  all  the  universe;

karma  =  action/activity ( sacrificial works/ rituals );

tapah  =   tapas ( austerity, i.e,  knowledge );

brahma  =  ( all  this  is  ) Bramam;

para-amrtam  =  the  highest  and  the  immortal;

etat  =  this;

yah  =  he  who;

veda  =  knows;

nihitam  =  seated  in;

guhayam  =  in  the  cavity  of  the  heart;

sah  =  he;

avidya  granthim  =  knot  of  ignorance;

vikirati  =  unties;

iha  =  ( even )  here;

somya  =  O  good-looking  youth.



The Purusha  alone  is  all  this  Universe  ---  the  sacrificial  works  ( Karmam )  and  austerities  ( Tapas ).

O  good  looking  youth!  he  who  knows  this  highest  and  immortal  Brahmam  as  seated  in  the cavity  of  the  heart,  unties  the  knot  of  ignorance  even  here,  in  this  very  life.
