12. And from the (distinctive) qualities (of the two mentioned in subsequent texts).
The texts subsequent to the one under discussion mention the characteristics of the two that have entered the cavity of the heart, which show that these are the individual soul and Brahman. “Know that the soul is the charioteer” etc. (Kath. 1. 3. 3) and “He attains the end of the journey, that supreme state of Vishnu” (Ibid. 1. 3. 9), where the two are mentioned as the attainer and the goal attained, i.e. as the Jiva and Brahman. In a previous passage also the two are spoken of as the meditator and the object of meditation.
“The sage relinquishes joy and sorrow, having realized by meditation . . . that effulgent One . . . seated in the heart” (Kath. 1 . 2 . 12).
