Mantram-15.


Discussion-2. "Prayer  in  Vedantham" ...." LORD  SUN" ...  "ATMA-SELF" ...



Prayer  in  Vedantham  is  only  an  attempt  of  the  ego-centre  to  attune  itself  to  the  "Supreme  Consciousness"  in  the  individual.


Addressing  the  "Supreme  Consciousness,  the  ego-centre  in  the  individual  is  chanting  this  Mantram.


The  epithets,  by  which  "Lord Sun" is  indicated,  are  chosen  with  a  special  dexterity.


"PUSAN"  is  one  of  the  innumerable  names  of  Lord  SUN.


"IT  MEANS  THE  "NOURISHER - - - -  THE  SUSTAINER.


The  Sun  is  the  centre  of  the  entire  Universe,  itself  motionless  and  inactive,  and  yet  by  its  very  presence,  it  balances  the  entire  movements  of  the Universe  around  it  and,  being  the  nourisher  and  the  source  of  all  energy  in  the  Cosmos,  it  represents   the  seeker's  inner  world  ---  the  nourisher  and  "ILLUMINATOR,  THE  ATMA".


The  motionless  centre,  which  controls  the  entire  movement  of  the  field,  is  the  source  of  all  energy  and  of  "matter"  around  it,  the "SELF,  THE  SPIRIT."  


The  ego-centre  is  to  die  when  it  realises  its  real  nature,  "THE  SELF".
