I am the Father of the Universe and its Mother; I am its Nourisher and its Grandfather; I am the Knowable and the Pure; I am the Goal, the Sustainer, the Lord, the Witness, the Home, the Shelter, the Lover and the Origin; I am Life and Death; I am the Fountain and the Seed Imperishable… I am Death and Immortality; I am Being and Non-Being.
