VAJASANEYI    SAMHITA    UPANISHAD


Mantram-4.


 Discussion-8. "Swami Sri Adi-Sankaracharya" : about "Matarisva " .....( last part )


According to Swami Sri Adi Sankaracharya, 'Matarisva' refers  to  the  individuality  ( Jiva /Jivatma ),  and  water  ( apah )  here  means  'Karmam.'

Then  it  would  mean  that  all  activities  of  all  individualised  personalities  are  always  within  the  'Self.'



Where ever  life  is  sustained,  it  is  because  of  the  will  of  the  organism  to  live  Self-consciously.

As  such,  the  Supreme  is  the  very  source  from  which  air  takes  it  potency,  by  which  it  gains  its  miraculous  capacity  to  sustain,  nourish,  and  maintain  life  in  the  forms.

The  same  idea  is  much  vividly  brought  out  in  the  following  Mantram (5).

Swamiji's explanation ENDS.
