‘6. ‘That’ which is invisible,
Ungraspable,
Without family,
Cattle,
Bodily form,
The Eternal,
Omnipresent,
All pervading
Imperishable
Consciousness,
‘That’ is which the sages
Know
As the Source of all Being,
Consciousness, Reality, Love.

7. As the spider
Spins
And draws in its web,
As plants grow,
As hair springs from the head and body,
So does all
Arise from this Indestructible Consciousness.’

~~From The Principal Upanishads, The Essential Philosophical Foundation of Hinduism,
“The Mundaka Upanishad,” Book I, Part 1
