It is he who beholds, touches, hears, smells, tastes, perceives, thinks, reasons, conceives, acts, whose essence is knowledge, the Self. His foundation and dwelling is the supreme, indestructible Soul.
The seer said to them, "Stay for a year, practicing austerity, chastity and faith. Then ask me whatever you desire to ask and if we know, we shall, indeed, tell you all about it."
