Gita, Chapter 7.
I am the universe, the universe is in me.
The external me is in earth and air and space,
in fire and in water and in mind, reason and self.
The invisible me is everywhere in everything.
I am the light of the sun and the coolness of the moon;
I am the beauty in the rainbow and the fragrance of the jasmine.
I am the faith in the prayer and the wisdom of the sages,
And I am the beginning and the end of all things.
Truth, desire and ignorance all proceed from me.
I am not in them but they are in me.
The illusions they project pervade the universe.
Blinded by them people do not see me.
But those that take shelter in me see beyond the false images.
Of those taking refuge in me most do so to fulfill a wish,
Some in pursuit from sentiment, some in pursuit of knowledge;
And there are those who do so striving for the good of their people.
With my blessing all of them may achieve their end;
But the perfect devotee, one in a million, is one who knows me;
finds me everywhere in everything and every being;
Who knows that I am the past, present and future?
Who sees me in young and old, in the poor and wrongdoer?
in the lotus and serpents, in the cow and the lute.
Such a one, devoid of delusion, with knowledge finds harmony in me.
