A Snipet From The Svetasvatara UpanishadI am currently taking an Eastern Philosophy class and I have been reading the Upanishads. I read this verse and I love the simplicity in how it expresses the love of God for his creations. I am not in any way promoting a belief in any one religion. My faith is a private matter and whether or not you believe in God, that is your personal choice along with which god you choose to worship and how. I just found this verse beautiful and I wanted to share it.
"God ended his work and he rested, and he made a bond of love between his soul and the soul of all things. And the ONE became one with the one, and the two, and the three and the eight, and with time and with the subtle mystery of the human soul."
I do not yet know the meaning behind the numbers. I just felt this verse was very poetic.
