TROTA | CHAPTER 3 | SEL0224 | SWAMI KRISHNANANDA
|| 3.03 | THE GREAT ABNEGATION & SEARCH ||
Truth is covered by a golden vessel . The individual is cheated by the appearances of the forms of nature . The lifting up of this vessel and uncovering the Truth is the task of the seeker of perfection .
The fervour of a Nachiketas is expected in every spiritual aspirant .
" Ephemeral things are these that are of the mortal ! The vigour of all the senses they wear away . Even a long life is indeed very slight ! Thine be the vehicles , thine the dance and the song ! . . . What there is in the great Beyond — tell me about that ; nothing short of this does Nachiketas choose . " ( Katha Up , 1 . 26 , 29 )
