Brhadaranyaka Upanishad

The whole is all That; the whole is all this; the whole was born of the whole; taking the whole from the whole, what remains is the whole. The Brhadaranyaka Upanishad is so called (in Sanskrit, Brhad means tree and aranyak means forest) because it is the largest volume of the Upanishads. An excerpt:-

When a conch is blown or when a lute is played, you cannot distinguish its various particular notes, but they are included in the general note of the conch or the lute, or any kind of musical instrument. The notes of the conch or lute have no existence apart from the general note of the conch or the lute. Even so, nothing particular is perceived apart from the Pure, Intelligent Self. A drum, a conch, or a lute have distinct general and particular notes of their own, which are included in the sound in general. Similarly, all objects are unified in the Absolute or Brahman as the varieties of genus and particulars are not different from It.
