Mantram : 8.


 Discussion-7. "Self-existing  ( Svayambhu )"  .....................


We,  the  finite  creatures,  as  human  beings,  can  struggle  and  strive  to  understand  the  Reality  behind  the  world  of  perceived  plurality  only  through  the  intervention  of  our  instruments  of  thinking  and  feeling.


Our  intellect  can  function  only  in  three  definite  fields  of  activity  called  time,  space,  and  causality.

Cause - hunting  is  the  great  avocation  of  the  intellect.

Whenever   we  a  thing  in  this  world,  over  which  we  want  to  make  a  research  and  enquiry,  should  naturally  dive  itself  into  the  quest  of  its  cause.

Thus  Mr. Z.  is  better  understood  when  we  understand  that  he  is  the   son    of  Mr.  Y.

But  if  the  enquiry  is  still  carried  on,  we  will  have  to  come  to  a  statement  that  Mr.  Y.  is  the  son  of  Mr.  X;  X  the  son  of  W,  and  in  the  same  strain  we  can  arrive  at  a  point  when  we  shall  understand  that  Mr.  is  the  son  of  Mr. A.



But  still  there  is  scope  to  enquire  who  is  the  father  of  A.


Similarly,  in  the  world  also,  the  causation-hunting-intellect  will  have  to  be  checkmated  at  a  particular  point  by  a  great  grand  supposition  only  to  stem  the  tide  of  its  own  wasteful  flow.
