Work hard to realize the Self(Soul) – Teachings of Adi Shankaracharya
शब्दजालं महारण्यं चित्तभ्रमणकारणम् ।
अतः प्रयत्नाज्ज्ञातव्यं तत्त्वज्ञैस्तत्त्वमात्मनः ॥ ६0 ॥
sabdajalam maharanyam cittabhramanakaranam |
atah prayatnajjnatavyam tattvajnaistattvamatmanah || 60 ||
The network of words is like a mesh and similar to a dense forest which confuses the mind and causes it to wander, here and there and everywhere. Therefore, remembering this, the wise one should work hard to realize the Self (Soul).
