Through the last few shlokas of the thirteenth chapter, Swami Nirviseshananda ji explains what the True Vision of a Seer is. The vision becomes full and absolute when one finds the presence of the Supreme in everything big and small.
Referring to shlokas from Kathopanishad, Swamiji explains that One who sees the one, indestructible, imperishable Soul in all the perishables of the world, has a real vision.
Swamiji says that we can divinize the whole creation by the practice of Samatva or equanimity. The whole creation appears in the consciousness but the Purusha remains untainted. The Soul reveals the gross external world and the internal world of thoughts, emotions etc but never gets affected by them.
Quoting from various texts, Swamiji speaks about the One, beginningless, imperishable Soul. One gets the understanding that the changeless, imperishable Kshetrajna (Self) is within one’s own body and can be experienced by all. It can be perceived by contemplation, a Spiritual vision.
Before concluding, Swamiji highlights the important points that a seeker of Knowledge will need to remember in his pursuit. From this Sadhana-oriented discussion one gains clarity, inspiration, motivation and a clear understanding of the path ahead.

Those days, there were many rats staying in various pockets of the tiled roof. My room had a very low ceiling and I could even touch the roof tiles. At night, I would see big, big rats running around just near me.
I got back to my daily chores, but the scene remained in my mind – the old man’s wrinkled face, his gleaming eyes, the contentment he enjoyed, his refusal to accept more than ‘his minimum needs’! How many of us can take such a stand?
Bhakti is not so much in the worship with flowers, garlands, lamps or incense sticks. Neither it is in chanting His names and praises. It is verily in living and acting according to the wish of the Lord, pleasing Him, imbibing qualities and attitudes that He wants us to imbibe.
