Mantram : 6.


 Final Discussion-5. 'Summation'......


Repulsion,  hatred,  shrinking,  dislike,  and  fear  etc,.. can  come  not  with  oneself,  but  with  another.

The  intellectual - 'I'  may  dislike  or  fear  or  hate  the  mental - 'I'  at  a  given  time  and  place;  but  here,  also  there  is  pluralistic  concept.

'The  other'  is  always  necessary  for  one  to enertain  'jugupsa'  but  when  we  have  realised  and  are  experiencing  the  Oneness  of  the  Self,  and  when  we  have  got  more  and  more  established  in  that  experience,  where  can  there  be  '  other' excepting  the  Self?



When  'the other'  has  retreated,  the  'mental  perversion  or  jugupsa'  also  disappears   from  the  mind.

This  is  the  great  Goal  of  perfection  pointed  out  by  the  great  Rishi-s,  and  we  may  add  here  that  in  no  other  religion  of  the  world  has  this  scientific  truth  been  so  vividly  explained  as  in  'Vedantham'.

The  Rishi  knew  that  this  idea,  so  subtle  and  unusual,  my  not  be  correctly  understood  by  the  students  easily,  and  hence  the  following  Mantram  is  again  dedicated  to  explain  much  more  vividly  the  same  Truth.

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…

Discussion-7.

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…
