A daily collection of verses from the Vedas, Hinduism's revealed scripture
Verily, those worlds of the asuras are enveloped in blind darkness; and thereto they all repair after death who are slayers of Atman.
Yajur Veda, Isa Upanishad, Part 1, Chapter 1, 3
That non-dual Atman, though never stirring, is swifter than the mind. The senses cannot reach It, for It moves ever in front. Though standing still, It overtakes others who are running. Because of Atman, Vayu, the World Soul apportions the activities ofall.
Yajur Veda, Isa Upanishad, Part 1, Chapter 1, 4
It moves and moves not; It is far and likewise near. It is inside all this and It is outside all this.
Yajur Veda, Isa Upanishad, Part 1, Chapter 1, 5
The wise man beholds all beings in the Self, and the Self in all beings; for that reason he does not hate anyone.
Yajur Veda, Isa Upanishad, Part 1, Chapter 1, 6
To the seer, all things have verily become the Self: what delusion, what sorrow, can there be for him who beholds that oneness?
Yajur Veda, Isa Upanishad, Part 1, Chapter 1, 7
