Mantram-4. "Answer by Rishi 'Angira' ( to 'Saunaka' ) : 'Knowledge is of two types'. "
Discussion-2. "Maharishi Angira starts his discourse ...... "
So then, in the most scientific way, 'Maharishi Angira' starts his discourse with classification of the enire possibility-of-knowledge.
Rishi says the knowledge-possibilities fall into two distinct groups :
1. the lower and 2. higher ----
1. the terrestrial and 2. the transcendental.
The question of the disciple is about the transcendental and it is but the intelligent way for a teacher to negate
'that which it is not' and then start the assertion of 'what it is.'
The negation itself is an indirect pointer to the path which 'leads to that' which is to be asserted.
