ISAVASYA UPANISHAD : Mantram : 18.





ISAVASYA UPANISHAD :

or


VAJASANEYI    SAMHITA    UPANISHAD



Mantram-18. ( Last Mantram )


Last Discussion-3. "We  offer  Thee  our  best  salutations" .....  "Agne  idam  na  mama"..



"We  offer  Thee  our  best  salutations" : -  Surrender  of  all  the b false  conceptions  in  us  is  the  way  to  cleanse  our  heart  and  prepare  it  for  intimations  from  the  Higheat.


In  the  ritualistic  portion  of  the  Vedas,  we  find  the  Mantram  for  offering  the  oblations
( homa-draviyam / pouring havis in  the  homa-guntam) as  "Agne  idam  na  mama" : -

'O  Fire !  I  give  myself  to  thee  ....  No  more  am  I  the  mind.'

Thus " Namah"  is  a  voluntary  self  offering,  total  and  complete,  at  the  alter  of  the  Highest.

"Namaskaram"  consists  not  merely  in  an  elaborate  demonstration  of  a  physical  prostration  nor  in  a  casual  oral  expression."

" It  is  an  active  dynamic  spiritual  giving  up  and  a  becoming  into  the  new  awareness.

Discussion  on  Mantram-18. ENDS.

Isavasya Upanishad ends here with following Santi-Mantram ( Peace-Invocation) :- between Guru and  Sishya ...

"Om  purna-madah-midam  purnat  purnam-udacyate,


Purnasya  purna-madaya  purna-meva-vasisyate."


Om  Santi !  Om  Santi !!  Om  Santi !!!

 The  meaning of this Mantram is  already  explained  in  the  beginning  of  the  Upanishad.

END.

NEXT : Comming with another Upanishad .......
