Fine Perception: A Prerequisite
एष सर्वेषु भूतेषु गूढोऽऽत्मा न प्रकाशते ।
दृश्यते त्वग्र्यया बुद्ध्या सूक्ष्मया सूक्ष्मदर्शिभिः ॥ १२॥
eṣa sarveṣu bhūteṣu gūḍho”tmā na prakāśate .
dṛśyate tvagryayā buddhyā sūkṣmayā sūkṣmadarśibhiḥ .. 12..
That Self hidden in all beings does not shine forth; but It is seen by subtle seers through their one-pointed and subtle intellects.
Swami Vivekananda Says —
This Atman in all beings does not manifest Himself to the eyes or the senses, but those whose minds have become purified and refined realise Him.[Source]
This, O Nachiketas, is very difficult, the way is long, and it is hard to attain. It is only those who have attained the finest perception that can see it, that can understand it.[Source]
