IX: 1

Chapter 9, Verse 1

"Because of your faith in me,
I will teach you
What wisdom is, Arjuna,
The most secret thing of all,
Open vision
Direct and instant.
Know it and be free
Of suffering forever."

Sri Krishna Prem:

Throughout world history runs a tradition of a wondrous secret sought under different names though all of the ages: the philosopher's stone, the elixir of immortality, the holy grail and so forth.  All these have been the object of a quest, and all are one if rightly understood.  No pen can ever write down this royal secret, nor can any lips reveal it.  It is written in the inmost heart of humanity and has lain there through countless ages, awaiting the day for you to tear away the veils of ignorance and experience its blazing truth in your heart.  There is no one, however mean or nasty, in whose heart it is not written, but few there are who read its life-giving words.
