That is Self

"He through Whom we see, taste, smell, feel, enjoy, know everything, He is that Self.
Knowing that by which one perceives both dream and waking states, the great omnipresent Self, the wise man goes beyond sorrow.
Knowing that the individual self, eater of the fruit of action, is the universal Self, maker of past and future, he knows he has nothing to fear.
Born in the beginning from meditation, born from the waters, having entered the secret place of the heart, He looks forth through beings. That is Self.
- Katha Upanishad

The Indian actor Sabu, in a scene from the 1947 film Black Narcissus.
