ONCE four friends, in the course of a walk, saw a place enclosed by a wall. The wall was very high. They all became eager to know what was inside. One of them climbed to the top of the wall. What he saw on looking inside made him speechless with wonder. He only cried, ‘Ah! Ah!’ and dropped in. He could not give any information about what he saw. The others too climbed the wall, uttered the same cry, ‘Ah! Ah!’ and jumped in. Now who could tell what was inside!
What Brahman is cannot be described. Even he who knows it cannot talk about it. (119)
