ISAVASYA UPANISHAD : - Mantram - 5.








ISAVASYA UPANISHAD :

or


VAJASANEYI    SAMHITA    UPANISHAD


Mantram : 5.



Tadejati  tannaijati  tad  dure  tadvantike


tadan-tarasya  sarvasya  tadu  sarva-syasya  bahyatah.



tat  =  if;

ejati  =  moves;

tat  =  if;

na  =  not;

ejati  =  moves;

tat  =  if;

dure  =  far;

tat  =  if;

u  =  verily;

antike  =  near;

tat  =  if;

antah  =  inside;

asya  =  of  this;

sarvasya  =  of  all;

asya  =  this;

bahyatah  =  outside.



"The Atma  'moves'  and  It  'moves  not';  It  is  'far'  and  It  is  'near';  It  is  'inside' ( within) all  this,  and  It  is  also  'outside'  all  this."


Discussion-1. The idea  of  the  last mantram-(4)  is  repeated  here  to  make  it  more  elaborately  clear.

As  I  said  earlier,  the  attempt  of  the  Master  is  only  to  make  his  students  understand  the  vital  fact  that  the  Supreme  Consciousness  is  'all-pervading.'

It  is  to  introduce  us  to  the  entire  significance  of  the  term  'all-pervading' and  to  facilitate  us  in  experiencing  the  pregnant  import  of  the  term,  that  the  teacher  is  repeatedly  giving  different  phrases  to  convey  the  same  idea.

Next : Discussion-2. "It  moves"...'ghost' ....,'post' .....'ghost-vision' .... "That  moves  not" .........

To be continued  ...

Discussion-1.

In the last mantram the great Rishi summarizing his transcendental wisdom declared, "all this is, verily, "AUM".

Continuing the declaration, the Rishi is now giving a discourse to the student and he says, "all this is BRAHMAM."

Naturally, it is clear that the great Master is wanting the student to understand that AUM is BRAHMAM.

AUM is not only indicates the Spiritual Centre in the Individual, but also r…

The Absolute 'this' is then the Spiritual Center in ourselves; and since Spiritual Factor is Eternal and All-pervading, the Center in ourselves is the Center everywhere.

The individual-Self is the Universal-Self.

And hence the Sruti says, "This Atma is BRAHMAM."

This oft-quoted declaration is considered to be major text ( Mahavakyam ) by the Vedantik-seekers.

A Mahavakyam is a scriptuaral declaration…
