BrihadArUpa4 5 Let me hear whatever any one may have told you Gardabhivipita, of the line of Bharadvaja, has told me that the ear (the quarters) is Brahman As one who has a mother, a father and a teacher should say, so has the descendant of Bharadvaja said this that the ear is Brahman. For what can a person have who cannot hear But did he tell you about its abode (body) and support No, he did not This Brahman is only one footed, O Emperor Then you tell us, Yajnavalkya The ear is its abode, and the ether (the Undifferentiated) its support. It should be meditated upon as infinite What is infinity, Yajnavalkya The quarters themselves, O Emperor said Yajnavalkya; therefore, O Emperor, to whatever direction one may go, one never reaches its end. Hence() the quarters are infinite. The quarters, O Emperor, are the ear, and the ear, O Emperor, is the Supreme Brahman. The ear never leaves him who, knowing thus, meditates upon it; all beings eagerly come to him; and being a Deva, he attains the Devas I give you a thousand cows with a bull like an elephant said Emperor Janaka. Yajnavalkya replied, My father was of opinion that one should not accept (wealth) from a disciple without fully instructing him
