Mundakopanishad : Santi Mantram ( Peace Invocation ) -13.



Mundaka-Upanishad :


Santi Mantram :


Discussion-9. "The herm "Sruti"  itself  means  " that  which  is  heard."   .......


Again,  unlike  the  philosophy  and  philosophical  text  books  in  Europe,  in  Bharatham  Upanishads  were  not  commodities  for  growing  rich  or  instruments  for  earning  applauses.

To  the  West,  philosophy  is  one  of  the  avenues  for  self-gratification  and  self  satisfaction;  in  the  East,  to  the  Rishi-s  and  their  true  children,  the  Hindu-s,  philosophy  is  is  for  Self-adoration  and  Self-attainment.

Hence  they,  as  it  were,  chose  to  remain  behind  the  screen  and  sincerely  felt  that  the  knowledge  they  gained  and  gave  expressions  to,  was  not  their's.

They  only  happen  to  hear  the  Mantra-s  from  within  themselves  as  though  spoken  by  somebody  other  than  themselves.


"The  term  'Sruti'  itself  means  'that  which  is  heard'. "  

Next : Discussion - 10. "Guru-Sishya Parampara"  .... "West  and  East"...
