"He who knows OM no sounds and with infinite sounds, the cessation of the duality, happiness, is a wise man and nothing else."

Sage is only one who has realized as his own happen where there is no movement whatsoever (physical and subtle appearances), neither external nor internal, even potentially, and the reality of infinite movements (beings, objects, perceptions, emotions, actions, experiences) as one and the same reality without differentiation (only one, without second, without the other or parts), so it experiences happiness, infinite, eternal, free, since this is its very nature (his own being, reality). He is only a wise because he carried out the nature of the Supreme reality (Śhaṅkarāchārya). Anyone else, by expert that is any knowledge, including that of the Sacred Scriptures (Śhaṅkarāchārya), or by very good-natured and even Holy that is or although venere you the entire universe.

The knowledge of the Scriptures, which reveals itself directly in the disciple tradition, is often essential to enlighten yourself the truth and practice that you must follow to make it directly and completely, definitively. Now, if you don't have the clarity that guides your practice as the summer sun of noon (no confusion or doubt) or if, even having that clarity indirectly to having heard of the master, not practices it completely, i.e. not you dissolve your wrong idea and aggressive yourself (´yo I'm the experimenter and the actor of the duality of the world, of my life - be individualized-´) consciousness always pure, free from darkness and pain, untouchable, only one, who sees your finally and even their absence (in deep sleep or) sleep without dreams or in deep meditation, conscious absorption) and the mentes-corazones of all beings, are miserable ignorant that misses the wonderful treasure that is human life, since you have not understood the meaning of life: the realization of your true to be, is not more than the truth, eternal and unchangeable consciousness, fullness, freedom, that is what suggest you the sacred syllable OM and the Scriptures.

Here Gauḍapāda concludes Āgama Prakaraṇa, the first chapter of Māṇḍūkya-Kārikā, his commentary on verse to Māṇḍūkya Upaniṣhad.
