Vedas 29 - Kenopanishad - Part 2 A - I Know It Not - Poem by Dr. Geeta Radhakrishna Menon
The teacher has defined Brahman- the real Self.
The disciple has heard everything.
The teacher is afraid that the disciple thinks he already knows.
The disciple admits: ‘I know It not, Sir! '
The teacher tells the disciple:
"You have heard about Brahman
But, that is not enough.
You must experience it.
Mere intellectual grasping does not mean
The recognition of Brahman.
I can lead you through a path, show the way,
But I cannot experience it for you.
You have to discover and experience it yourself."
Taught and guided by the teacher
That Brahman is beyond sense perception,
Beyond the eyes, ears, speech or mind,
‘That which is distinct from known'
‘That which is beyond the unknown'
Each has to learn, imbibe
Each has to prove, establish,
Through effort, prayer, meditation,
Through his own unique spiritual experience.
