Smaller than the smallest,
Greater than the greatest,
The Beloved forever lives
within the hearts of all.
When one is free from desire,
with mind and senses purified,
one beholds the glory of Our Lady
and is without sorrow.
She, the adorable one, seated in the heart,
is the power that gives breath.
Unto her do all the senses do homage.
Though seated, she travels far.
Though at rest, she moves all things.
Who but the purest of the pure
can realize this delightful being
who is joy and who is beyond joy?
-- Katha Upanishad, I. ii v. 1-4
