in the heart of every creature

The all-knowing Self was never born,
nor will it die. Beyond cause and effect,
This Self is eternal and immutable.
When the body dies, the Self does not die…
Hidden in the heart of every creature
Exists the Self, subtler that the subtlest,
Greater than the greatest…
The Self cannot be known through study,
…nor through the intellect,
nor through discourses about it.
~  Katha Upanishad
