ISAVASYA UPANISHAD :

or


VAJASANEYI    SAMHITA    UPANISHAD


Mantram : 6.


Yastu   sarvani  bhutani  atmanye  vanupasyati,


sarva-bhuteshu  catmanam  tato  na  viju-gupsate.



yah  =  who;

tu  =  however;

sarvani  =  all;

bhutani  =  beings;

atmani  =  in  the  Self;

eva  =  alone;

anupasyati  =  constantly  sees;

sarva-bhuteshu  =  in  all  beings;

ca  =  and;

atmanam  =  Self;

tatah  =  then;

na  =  not;

viju-gupsate  =  shrinks,  feels  hatred.



(6) "He  who  constantly  sees  everywhere  all  existence  in  the  Self  and  the  Self  in  all  beings  and  forms,  thereafter  feels  no  hatred  for  anything."





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.

Next : Discussion-2.  "Life - Centre  everywhere" ....

To be continued  ..
