ayaṃ stanayitnuḥ sarveṣāṃ bhūtānām madhu, asya stanayitnoḥ sarvāṇi bhūtāni madhu; yaścāyamasminstanayitnau tejomayo’mṛtamayaḥ puruṣaḥ, yaścāyamadhyātmaṃ śābdaḥ sauvarastejomayo’mṛtamayaḥ puruṣaḥ, ayameva sa yo’yamātmā, idamamṛtam, idaṃ brahma, idaṃ sarvam || 9 ||
9. This cloud is like honey to all beings, and all beings are like honey to this cloud. (The same with) the shining, immortal being who is in this cloud, and” the shining, immortal being identified with sound and voice in the body. (These • four) are but this Self. This (Self-knowledge) is (the means of) immortality; this (underlying unity) is Brahman; this (knowledge of Brahman) is (the means of becoming) all.
Likewise the cloud. Although the being identified with sound is the one represented the body, yet as he is specially manifest in voice, he is here mentioned as such.
