na vijānāmi yadivedamasmi niṇyaḥ samnaddho manasā carāmi.

" I know not whether I am the same as this cosmos: a mystery am I, yet burdened by mind, I wander. "

  • Rig Veda 1.164.37

From the Preface:

"There are two great mysteries: idam and aham, 'cosmos' and 'myself'. What indeed is the person in this vast cosmos? In all the great traditions there are people, monuments, documents and ceremonies that can assist searchers. The Rig Veda is among the very earliest documents in which the sages speak of the call of Satyam, Ritam, and Brihat - 'Truth', 'Order' and 'Vastness'. Similar mysteries are spoken of in Psalm 8: 'When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, / the moon and the stars, which thou has ordained; / What is man, that thou art mindful of him?'

Throughout my life, I have been struck by the mysteries these quotations articulate. This is perhaps true for each of us: we cannot not be engaged by such questions. The search to understand and to stand under these mysteries is the pilgrimage for every person and within every tradition."
