Knower of one knows all

Knower of one knows all

जे एगं जाणइ से सव्वं जाणइ|
जे सव्वं जाणइ से एगं जाणइ||

One who knows one (self) he knows all (inanimate) and one who knows all (inanimate), he knows one (self).

One who has realized self, he is not attracted towards inanimate substances; because he knows the transitory nature of other substances.

Similarly, one who knows the nature of inanimate things, he is attracted to the self only. After knowing all the others, he knows the self and accepts that only.

The secret of this astonishing statement is that first, we must strive for knowing the self in all its purity because an omniscient knows one and knows all.

- Acaranga Sutra 1/3/4
