Mundakopanishad : Santi Mantram ( Peace Invocation ) -15.

Discussion : 11. The west.. what  happens  there ...


In  Europe,  we  find  that  every  changing  vicissitude  of  national  life,  with  every  war,  with  every  revolution,  there  is  a  thorough  re-arrangement  of  material  values  lived,  and  consequently,  there  is  a  change  in  the  attitude  of  the  mind  and  intellect  to  life.


With  every  disturbance  in  the  brain  cells  in  kaleidoscopic  variety,  we  get  a  library  of  philosophies  from  Plato  to  date.


But  in  Bharatham,  the  Eternal  Veda-s  and  the  Upanishadik  Truths  are  as  true  today  as  they  were  when  they  were  taught  in  the  floery  valleys  of  the  Sacred  Ganga river.

Though  the  scientific  developments,  communal  awareness,  political  consciousness  or  international  situations,  may  meddle  with  our  outer  and  inner  worlds  of  objects  and  feelings,  the  experience  of  deep  sleep,  you  will  admit,  is  one  and  the  same  at  all  times.

We  may  have  progresed  and  thoroughly  changed  in  the  external  set  up  in  the  world  and  the  consequent  inner  psychological  and  intellectual  assesssments  of  things,  but  the  experience  of  God-hood.

This  is  the  goal  preached  in  the  "Upanishads."

It  is  not  changing  or  changeable  whatever  be  the  outside  change  in  our  gross  life.

In the last mantram the great Rishi summarizing his transcendental wisdom declared, "all this is, verily, "AUM".

Continuing the declaration, the Rishi is now giving a discourse to the student and he says, "all this is BRAHMAM."

AUM is not only indicates the Spiritual Centre in the Individual, but also r…

The Absolute 'this' is then the Spiritual Center in ourselves; and since Spiritual Factor is Eternal and All-pervading, the Center in ourselves is the Center everywhere.

The individual-Self is the Universal-Self.

And hence the Sruti says, "This Atma is BRAHMAM."

This oft-quoted declaration is considered to be major text ( Mahavakyam ) by the Vedantik-seekers.

A Mahavakyam is a scriptuaral declaration…
