Discussion-3. "Scatheless " and  without  muscles"  .....



The  expressions  "scatheless  and  without  muscles"  clearly  point  out   that  it  has  no  physical  body  at  all.

Ulcers  can  come  only  on  physical  body.

Where  there  in  no  body,  no  disease  can  come  there.

The  same  idea  is  being  more  forcefully  emphasised  when  the  Self  is  described  as  that  which  has  no  muscles.

The  term  "suddha" ( pure)  indicates  that  the  Atma  has  no  casual  body  since  it  is  untouched  by  sin.

The  greatest  sin  in  us  is  our  own  ignorance  of  our  real  nature,  which  in  its  turn  creates  all  the  animal  passions  in  us,  goading  us  to  more  and  more  inhuman  and  animalistic  action.

The  Self  is  Immaculate  ( apapa - viddham ).
