Mantram-11.


Discussion-5. "own  Self   is  the  Self  in  all" ....



But  having  gained  Vidya  in  this  very  life,  there  is  a  period  when  we  are  to  live  in  this  world  as  Liberated  soul,  a  Prophet,  a  God-man.

His  duty  is  not  thereafter  to  run  away  incognito  into  some  secret  cave  of  contemplation,  there  to  enjoy  the  serene  joys  of  his  own  realisation.

On  the  other  hand,  he  has  to  fulfil  his  Self-realisation  in  and  through  his  activities  in  the  world  outside.

Earlier  we  have  seen,  in  mantram six  and  seven,  that  Self-realisation  is  not  only  in  the  experience  that  one's  own  Self  is  divine,  but  this  realisation  can  be  complete  only  when  one  realises  that  his  own  Self  is  the  Self-in-all.


Unless  we  include  and  incorporate  in  our  Self-experience  the  pluralistic  world  of  imperfection  also,  the  realisation  cannot  be  called  complete.

Rooted   in  the  knowledge  of  our  own  Self,  the  Self-realised  sage  or  seer  becomes  the  most  potent  factor  in  the  world  to  carve  out  for  it  a  destiny  of  unquestionable  brilliance  and  success.

Next : Discussion : 6. "Self-realised man .... what  happens  to  him ? ....."

To be continued  ....
