Realizing the Self

The Self is not realized through instruction,
nor by intellectual power,
nor by much hearing
.. It can be reached only
by the one whom the Self chooses.
To him the Self reveals its form.
He who has not renounced evil ways,
who is not at peace,
who cannot concentrate,
whose mind is not composed
cannot reach the Self,
even by right knowledge.

Katha Upanishad 1.2.24-25
Krishna Yajur Veda,
