Mundakopanishad : Santi Mantram ( Peace Invocation ) -10.






Mundaka-Upanishad :


Santi Mantram :


 Discussion-6. No  peace-invocation  concludes  without  thrice  repeating  or  invoking  "Santhi".


The three  repetitions  are,  if  it  is  explained  by  the  Acharya-s,  addressed  to  the  three  groups  in  which  all  the  probable  obstacles  in  the  study  of  the  scriptures  can  be  classified.

They  are  the  God-sent  ( Adhi-daivika ),  such  as  Lightening,  thunder,  or  phenominal
(Adhi-bhautika)  such  as  fires,  floods,  and  landslides, etc.;  or  purely  subjective (Adhyatmaika)
such  as  inertia,  lack  of  faith,  insincerity  and  such  others  that  arise  from  our  own  negativities.



We  shall  everyday  open  the  discourses  with  the  chanting  of  invocation,  and  when  we  come  to  the  thrice - repeated  peace prayer,  we  too  shall  sincerely  pray  that  our  co-operative  effort  at  the  study  may  not  be  obstructed  by  any  force  belonging  to  any  of  the  three  groups.

Next : Discussion-7. "realm  of  perfection" ....
