ISAVASYA UPANISHAD :

or


VAJASANEYI    SAMHITA    UPANISHAD


Mantram : 7.


Yasmin  sarvani  bhutani  atmaiva - bhud - vijanatah,


tatra  ko  mohah  kah  soka  ekatva - manu - pasyatah.



yasmin  =  in  whom;

sarvani  =  all;

bhutani  =  beings;

atma  -  Self;

eva  =  alone;

abhut  =  have  become;

vijanatah  =  knowing;

tatra  =  these;

kah  =  what;

mohah  =  delusion;

kah  =  what;

sokah  =  grief;

ekatvam  =  oneness;

anupasyatah  =  while  constantly  seeing.



( 7 ) "  When,  to  the  knower,  all  beings  have  become  one  in  his  own  Self  ( Atma ),  how  shall  he  feel  deluded  thereafter?

What  grief  can  there  be  to  him  who  sees  oneness  everywhere?"



Discussion-1.  In  the  previous  mantram,  the  Rishi  explained  to  us  the  glory  of  Self-realisation  in  a  language  of  negative  assertions  and  not  in  the  language  of  positive  declarations.


We  were  only  told  that  the  individual  wil  have no  more  any  repulsion  against  or  hatred  for  anything  in  life.


But  here,  in  this  mantram,  the  same  idea  has  been  explained  to  us  by  the  Rishi  with  more  emphasis  and  practical  assertions.


Next : Discussion-2. "Moha  and  Soka" ....
