Katha Upanishad on the Ever Existent

The Katha Upanishad is an ancient Hindu religious scripture. The dialogues in the form of imparting knowledge by Yama, the Hindu God of death to Naciketa, who is a young student seeking the divine knowledge, are extremely interesting.  I would like you to have a look at some of these verses of the Katha Upanishad.I have tried to translate the original Sanskrit verses as best as I could.

Verse III.12
The Atma [soul] is present in the invisible state in all beings, it does not manifest. It can be realized by those who know how to look deeper into themselves, by way of their evolved and still minds or through pure reason.

Verse IV.I
The Ever Existent created the sense organs of man to look outwards; thus man experiences the outer world and not the inner self. A seeker with burning desire [to discover the divine] turns his senses inwards, with the burning desire to achieve immortality, and thus finds his true self.

Verse VI.7
Superior to the sense organs is the mind; superior to the mind is intelligence; superior to the intelligence is the cosmic mind; superior to the cosmic mind is creation in its Non-Dual state.

Verse VI.8
Superior even to the Non -Dual state is the Ever Existent, all pervading and all encompassing. Entirely free from any distinguishing symbols, knowing ‘It’on realizes immortality.

Verse VI.9
His [The Ever Existent] form cannot be measured; none can see him with the eye [physical].He is seen in the inner most mind; the mind which is totally under the control of intelligence. Those who realize this attain immortality.

Verse VI.10-11
It is when all the five organ of sense which impart knowledge remain still, along with the mind, and when even the intelligence stops acting. This is the Ultimate state. The sages consider that state as the highest Yogic state.
