Chapter Four

13. Balaki said, 選 worship the person who is in the echo. Ajatasatru said to him, 船o not make me talk about him. I worship him as life. Whoever worship him as such does not fall into unconsciousness before his time.

14. Balaki said, 選 worship the person who is in sound. Ajatasatru said to him, 船o not make me talk about him. I worship him as life. Whoever worship him as such does not pass away before his time.

15. Balaki said, 選 worship the person who, asleep, moves about in dream.
Ajatasatru said to him, 船o not make me talk about him. I worship him as King Yama. For whoever worships him as such, all this is controlled (yam) for his betterment.

16. Balaki said, 選 worship the person is in the body. Ajatasatru said to him, 船o not make me talk about him. I worship him as Prajapati. Whoever worships him as such becomes fruitful in offspring, in animals, in fame, in the glory of Brahman, in a heavenly world: he attains his full life span.

17. Balaki said, 選 worship the person who is in the right eye.
Ajatasatru said to him, 船o not make talk about him. I worship him as the self of speech, the self of fire, the self of light. Whoever worship him as such becomes the self of all these.

18. Balaki said, 選 worship the person who is in the left eye.
Ajatasatru said to him, 船o not make me talk about him. I worship him as the self of truth, the self of lightning, the self of all these.

19. Then Balaki fell silent. Ajatasatru said to him, Is that all, Balaki?
Balaki said, 禅hat is all.
Ajatasatru said to him, 塑ou make me talk to no purpose. I must teach you about Brahman. What one needs to know Balaki, is who is the maker of these persons, whose work it is.

Then Balaki approached him, fuel in hand, and said, 選 must come to you as your student.
Ajatasatru said to him, 選 think it contrary to the roper form that a Ksatriya should initiate a Brahmana. But come, I shall make it know to you. He seized him by the hand and set off. They came to a person who was asleep, and Ajatasatru called him: 前 great King Soma, dressed in white! He just lay there. but then Ajatasatru prodded him with a stick, and he got up.

Ajatasatru said to Balaki, 糎here did the person lie then, Balaki? Where was he? Where has he come from?
Balaki did not know.

Ajatasatru said to him, 羨s to where the person lay then, Balaki, where he was, and where he has come from: the channels of a person, Called hita, stretch from the heart divided, they exist on a subtle essence of tawny, white, black, and yellow. When, asleep, he sees no dream, he is in those channels.
