VII

Transliteration

Vidyam cavidyam ca yas tad vedobhyam saha Avidyaya mrtyum tirtva vidyayamrtam asnute.

Translation

He who knows and understands knowledge and ignorance as one, through ignorance passes beyond the domain of death, through knowledge attains to an eternal Life and drinks deep the Light of Immortality.

Comment

Ignorance is the knowledge of the physical mind.
Knowledge is the secret of the soul.
When the physical mind surrenders its existence to the illumination of the soul, death dies; Immortality dawns.
