ISAVASYA UPANISHAD : Mantram : 14.






ISAVASYA UPANISHAD :

or


VAJASANEYI    SAMHITA    UPANISHAD



Mantram-14.



Discussion-3 "Vedic Perfection "..." Sri  Adi  Sankaracharya  ... Sri Ramakrishna " ...



A  mere  Vedantic  perfection  does  not  make  a  man  fit  to  live  in  the  community  of  men  and  women  and  work  in  the  field  of  Avidya  to  redeem  his  generation  from  the  mental  and  intellectual  dustbin  into  which  it  has  fallen.


In  the  contention  of  a  cultural  renaissance,  the  great  Master  will  have  to  face  different  types  of  challenges  in  which  he  can  easily  find  equilibrium  and  poise  only  when  he  is  efficiently  guided  and  continuously  rejuvenated  by  his  limitless  devotion  to  the  Lord  of  his  heart.




"Sri  Ramakrishna  Paramahamsa's"  :  might  and  glory  was  his  experience  of  the  Self,  but  his  life's  poise  and  equanimity  were  the  special  blessings  of  his  beloved  Mother  "Kali"  of 
"Dakshinesvara" temple.



Swami  Sri  Adi  Sankaracharya,  the  redeemer  of  "Hinduism" shall  eternally  shine  out  through  the  clouds  of  time  and  space  because  of  his  superhuman  perfection  and  experience  of  the  Self,  and  yet  he  could  face  his  opponents  along  the  length  and  breadth  of  Bharatham,
as  he  did  in  his  time,  and  carve  out  of  a  "decadent   Hinduism" a  renascent  Bharatham  crowned  with  the  best  of  its  culture  because  of  his  staunch  and  unquestionable  faith  in  the  "Goddess  of  learning,  Mother  Sarada ( Saraswathi )."

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…
