Brahman is that from which all this is born, in which all these are residing and that into which all these merge in the end. Father gave instruction to son to perform tapas to reveal Brahman. He also gave the order in which ultimate reality is pervaded. He said that food, vital air, eye, ear, mind and speech are Brahman. Son meditated and revealed one by one and at the end realized the blissful all pervaded atman.
