A question was asked about the Upanishadic passage, "The Supreme Spirit is subtler than the subtlest and larger than the largest."
Maharshi: Even the structure of the atom has been found by the mind.
Therefore the mind is subtler than the atom. That which is behind the mind, namely the individual soul, is subtler than the mind. Further, the Tamil saint Manickavachagar has said of the specks dancing in a beam of sunlight, that if each represents a universe, the whole sunlight will represent the Supreme Being.
