The Atman is more desirable than sons, more desirable then wealth, more desirable then all else.

– Brihad Aranyaka Upanishad, 1.4.8

Our atman is our highest identity, our soul. Through realising this alone we can reach the highest happiness, this is the most desirable of all things. The Upanishads are a call for realisation of this nature. Although the world should not be negated, there should be a higher goal in mind.

Dedication
Getting caught up in the stuff of the world, may I not forget Rama, who always smiling, never forgets me.
