~ OM ~
    
    
    The Knower
    The central Self
    Is not born and
    Does not die.
    

    It is not produced from anything And produces nothing apart from itself. It is unborn, eternal, enduring, primordial. It is not slain when the body is slain. If the slayer thinks he slays Or the slain thinks he is slain Neither understands. It neither slays nor can be slain.

    Smaller than the small Greater than the great It is the self in the heart of all being.
