विचारोत्थात्मविज्ञानं ज्ञानमंग विदुर्बुधाः ।
ज्ञेयं तस्यान्तरेवास्ति माधुर्यं पयसो यथा ॥ २१ ॥

vicārotthātmavijñānaṃ jñānamaṃga vidurbudhāḥ |
jñeyaṃ tasyāntarevāsti mādhuryaṃ payaso yathā || 21 ||

Spiritual knowledge is the result of reason, and is reckoned as the only true knowledge by the wise; it includes the knowledge of the knowable soul, as the water contains its sweetness within itself.
