Man’s body is like a pot. His brain and senses are like the rice, pulses and water which boil in the pot. The pot boils on the hearth. It will be hot if you touch the pot. If you touch the boiling rice, your fingers will be scalded. The heat in the pot and in the rice does not, in reality, belong to the pot or to the rice. The heat of the burning hearth becomes the heat in these things. Even so, Brahman transformed itself into the distinguishing qualities in living beings and lifeless objects. The activity of the brain and of the senses is in reality the work of Brahman. Not a grain of sand will move without Its power.
We ultimately come upon God whatever object we try to explore. In the world, wherever you sink a well, after a certain depth you hit rock. Brahman is like that. Whatever the object, however tiny or big, at its bottom there is this ground of rock, Brahman.
