Anor aniyam mahato mahiyan
Atmasya jantor nihito guhayam.


Smaller than the smallest life, larger than the infinite Vast,
The soul breathes in the secret heart of man.


The soul is God’s eternal child and man’s great-grandfather.
As God’s eternal child the soul unceasingly plays.
As man’s eternal grandfather the soul perpetually enjoys.

Sri Chinmoy, The Upanishads: the Crown of India's Soul.First published by Agni Press in 1974.
