Thirty Minor Upanishads and long life attend (me). O Narasimha! 4 O Lord of Ḍevas! through Thy grace, persons cognize the true nature of Brahman that is unthinkable, undifferentiated, endless, and immutable, through the forms of the Gods, Brahma, Nārāyaṇa, and Śaṅkara. Like the eye (which sees without any obstacle the things) spread in the ākāś, so the wise always see the supreme abode of Vishṇu. Brahmans with divine eyes who are always spiritually awake, praise in diverse ways and illuminate the supreme abode of Vishṇu. Thus is the teaching of the Veḍas for salvation. Thus is the Upanishaḍ. Footnotes 1 Skanḍa is the son of Śiva and is represented on earth by Sanaṭkumāra. 2 This will give a rude shock to the followers of Śiva and Vishṇu in India, who, wage useless war as to the supremacy of Vishṇu and Śiva. 3 Saḍāsiva, lit., eternal bliss. This is one of the names applied to Śiva as also Mahāḍeva. 4 Narasimha, lit., Man-lion. This refers to one of the incarnations of Vishṇu when he killed the evil power Hiraṇyakasipu.
