My friend, Atreyee, found yet another passage that gives reference to the almighty mustard seed. This one is from the Upanishads, ancient accounts of mystical revelations and the inspiration behind all systems of Hindu religion.

"Smaller than a grain of rice is the Self; smaller than a grain of barley, smaller than a mustard seed, smaller than a canary (millet) seed, yea, smaller even than the kernel of a canary seed. Yet again is that Self, within the lotus of my heart, greater than the earth, greater than the heavens, yea, greater than all the worlds."
