Verse 4.31.24

ब्रह्म सर्वं जगदिति वक्तुं नाज्ञस्य युज्यते ।
तपोविद्याननुभवे स तदेवानुभूतवान् ॥ २४ ॥

brahma sarvaṃ jagaditi vaktuṃ nājñasya yujyate |
tapovidyānanubhave sa tadevānubhūtavān || 24 ||

It is in vain to preach the doctrine of "to pan," that "Brahma is all" to the vulgar, who for want of their knowledge of abstract meditation, are devoted to their sensible notions.
