Our body prevents us from seeing the truth that we are the Soul and lets out light through the sensory organs and makes us deceive ourselves by feeling that we are happy. Like the light emanating from a lamp kept in a pot with many holes goes out in all directions, In the person in whom the wisdom goes out through the openings of ear, eye, mouth and thought. Here mind and all sense organs are co-creating this apparent world. When that person realizes ‘I am That’, this whole universe shines after Him alone, who shines in the Consciousness as the knower.
- Dakshinamurthy Stotram
