"Yatha  nadyah  syanda-manah  samudre-

stam  gacchanti  nama-rupe  vihaaya,

tatha  vidvan  nama-rupat  vimuktah

parat-param  purusham-upaiti  divyam."


yatha  =  as;

nadyah  =  rivers;

syanda-manah  =  flowing;

samudre  =  into  the  sea;

astam  =  disappear;

gacchanti  =  get;

nama-rupe  =  name  and  shape;

vihaya  =  losing;

tatha  =  thus;

vidvan  =  the  wise  man;

nama-rupat  =  from  name  and  form;

vimuktah  =  being  free;

parat-param  =  the  highest  of  the  high;

purusham  =  Supreme  Divinity;

upaiti  =  attains;

divyam  =  eternal.


"As  flowing  rivers  get  themselves  disappeared  in  the  ocean  losing  their  special  names  and  distinct  forms,  so  the  wise  man  free  from  all  his  identifications  with  names  and  forms  goes  unto  the  highest  of  the  high  ---  the  Supreme  Divinity."
