Understanding Bliss

*****

‘When one obtains bliss, only then does
one perform one’s duties. One who does not
obtain bliss does not perform his duties.
Only one who obtains bliss performs his
duties. One must desire to understand bliss.’

‘The Infinite is bliss. There is no bliss
in anything finite. Only the Infinite is
bliss. One must desire to understand
the Infinite.’

‘When one sees nothing else, hears nothing
else, understands nothing else, that is the
Infinite. When one sees something else, hears
something else, understands something else,
that is the finite. The Infinite is
immortal, the finite is mortal.’

Chandogya Upanishad
