"Prana — Consciousness-Bearing Life Energy"
"All that exists, either as a form or in the formless state, is essentially life-substance.
Self-conscious, self-revealing, eternal and one is consciousness. The whole manifested universe is its form.
Creation follows the law of self-perfection. There are two ways of life; one is the path of the senses, and the other is the path of the Self.
Those who follow the path of the Self, aspiring to realize the Self by purity, faith and self-enlightenment, attain to the state of supreme illumination.
Those of sensory consciousness think that the self, the soul, is identified with the body. They live in the enjoyment of the senses, which is merely the reflection of the bliss of the Self.
Life is illumined by consciousness."
—Prashna Upanishad, Translated by Swami Premananda
