He is Brahman, glorious in the highest heaven1 min read

The seer meditating, seeing everything in the Self, will not be deluded,

And whoever sees the Self alone in everything,

He is Brahman, glorious in the highest heaven.

The word atman is (an abbreviated locative) – ‘in the Self’. Moreover, seeing, perceiving, everything, every thing. The meaning is that he is seeing only the Self-nature of every thing, and in everything the Self supreme.

he will not be deluded he does not come to be deluded, for there is no falling into delusion for one who sees the unity of the Self, as witness the Vedic verse, ‘There what delusion . . .’ (Isa 7). What exactly is this vision of Self which destroys delusion? The verse says,

meditating, with his senses withdrawn,

being a seer (kavi), a wise man (medhavin) in meditation (dhyana).

Delusion (moha) does not disappear simply by a view (darsana) arising (merely) out of words.

For he who at the time of dealing with the world, keeps restrained-in-yoga (yukta), and sees the one who has entered into all things, he indeed is Brahman, a man of Brahman, in the highest heaven at the zenith in Brahman. glorious shining forth in many ways.
