Discussion-1. As said in the previous mantram-s ( all ), if there be Atma so difficult to explain and naturally so difficult to understand, why should an individual, after all, strive to contact this Self or to realise It ?
What would be the benefit accrued to an individual by realising this uniform and all-pervading Reality behind multiplicity and plurality that we cognize around and about us ?
This mantram explains more vividly than ever in any other Upanishad about the state of perfect tranquillity gained by
Self-realised sage, and as such, this mantram has been oft-quoted and repeated in books and heard from platforms.
It is certainly worthwhile for all seekers to remember constantly this mantram with all his implications and import in their mind, Iwould suggest that even those who do not know much of "Samskrtam" would somehow or other memorise this mantram, maintaining an association of the meaning with the sounds, and would keep it as a ready antidote for all the inner poisons of mental agitations and intellectual unrest.
