MANDUKYA UPANISHAD : Chapter-1. "AGAMA PRAKARANA" ( The Scriptural Treatise ) Mantram-2, Discussion- 8.
( The Scriptural Treatise )
"Sarvam hyetad Brahma, ayam-atma Brahma,
so' yam-atma catuspat."
sarvam - all;
hi - indded;
brahma - this (is) BRAHMAM;
ayam atma brahma - this Self ( ATMA IN US ) is BRAHMAM;
sah - That ( BRAHMAM );
ayam atma - ( which is ) this Self ( ATMA IN US );
catuspat - ( is ) covered with four quarters ( PARTS ).
"All this is verily BRAHMAM. This is BRAHMAM. This JIVATMA ( ATMA WITHIN US ) has four quarters ( parts )."
The Divine Spark of Life in us experienced as the Self,
technically called in Vedanta as the 'ATMA' is to be known to us,
if not by directly pointing it out to us,
at least by the significance in the Sacred Language.
The technique is adopted in Vedanta is to show the Infinite by a process of intellection and logical analysis ----
a ruthless discrimination analysis of our experiences with the names and forms,
through which this Life Force and consistently acts in and around us.
