The Razor's Edge
Somerset Maugham came to India to learn about her philosophy and the quintessence of the Upanishads he wrote as the "Razor's Edge".
The Law of the Way is as dangerous as the Razor's Edge. ( Kshurasya dhara nishitha durathyaya durgam pathasthat kavayo vadanti ).
Says the Upanishadic verse
And stop not till the Goal is reached !
Like the Edge of the Razor
So is the path difficult to tread !
Those who have travelled that Path and reached the Goal triumphant, to them belongs eternal fame !
They alone are the conquerors
The conquerors of the Spirit !
The Self Actualised Poets
Whose fame body knoweth no disease !
