Purnam, Completeness, Fullness, OM

ॐ पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते I
पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते II

OM Purnam-adah Purnam-idam Purnat Purnam-udacyate 
Purnasya Purnam-adaya Purnam-evavashiyate

OM Completeness is that, completeness is this
From completeness, completeness comes forth
Completeness from completeness taken away
Completeness to completeness added
Completeness alone remains

If the understanding of this completeness, this fullness, this infinity, could be assimilated and totally known, there would be nothing else to do or say. Everything else - the books, the asanas, the questioning, the searching - everything would immediately become superfluous, redundant, unnecessary.
