progression of surrender | wisdom from upanishad

When all the senses are stilled,
when the mind is at rest,
when the intellect wavers not,
then is reached the highest state.

This calm of the senses and the mind has been defined as yoga (union). One who attains it - is freed from delusion.

- Katha Upanishad 2.6.10-11

The wise person should surrender his words to his mind;
and this he should surrender to the knowing self;
and the knowing self he should surrender to the (even) great(er) self;
and that he should surrender to the peaceful self.

- Katha Upanishad 3.13
