Sada jananam hrdaye sannivistah |
Hrda manisa manasabhiklrpto
Ya etad viduramrtaste bhavanti ||
He is a person who assumes the measure of a thumb to dwell within creatures. He is the inner self, ever dwelling in the heart of men. He is the Lord of knowledge, framed by the heart and the mind. One who knows this becomes immortal.
He is of the measure of a thumb, but is the inner self of all beings.
Sada jananam hrdaye sannivistah
Ever dwelling, ever dwelling in the heart of man! They who know this,that the Lord, the Supreme Lord resides in the heart, in this shape, in the measure of a thumb, they become immortal.
In the next verse, it says:
Sahasraksah sahasrapat |
Sa bhumim visvato vrtva atyatisthaddasangulam ||
Meaning: And, this little person, who is in the heart, in the measure of a thumb, is also the person who has a thousand heads, a thousand eyes, a thousand feet enveloping the earth on all sides. He stands beyond ten fingers breadth. How poetic is the description!
The Supreme Being pervades everything that grows, everything that lives, all that is here, there, anywhere, whatever was and whatever will be.
