Sant Jnaneshwar - Sat Chit Ananda (excerpts)

"There is nothing else here but the Self. Whether appearing as the seen or perceiving as the seer, nothing else exists besides the Self.... Just as water plays with itself by assuming the forms of waves, the Self, the ultimate Reality, plays happily with Itself. Though there are multitudes of visible objects, and wave upon wave of mental images, still they are not different from their witness. You may break a lump of raw sugar into a million pieces, still there is nothing but sugar, Likewise, the unity of the Self is not lost, even though It fills the whole universe. It is seeing only Its own Self -- like one who discovers various countries in his imagination, and goes wandering through them all with great enjoyment."
