Mundakopanishad : Santi Mantram ( Peace Invocation ) -7.






Mundaka-Upanishad :


Santi Mantram :


Discussion-3. "The  great  Masters in  the  Upanishads   ......  knew  no  desire,  nor  the  sense  world,  which  they  had  enquired  into  and  discovered  to  be  hollow  and  riddled  with  carping  sorrows,  held  any  attraction  for  them.

They  prayed  only  for  the  cultural  evolution  of  the  entire  kingdom  of  beings.

The  other  sense  objects  do  not  so  directly  pave  a  way  to  the  mental  suicides  in  man.

Both  the  outer  scenes  of  viciousness  and  the  inner  murmurs  of  foul  intentions  directly  sweep  us  in  front  of  them  and  defile  the  edifice  of  spiritualism  in  our  heart;  hence  the  great  prayer  of  the  'Vedik' Seers  that  they  should  hear  and  see  nothing  but  goodness  and  purity.
