Mundakopanishad : "Answer by Rishi 'Angira' ( to 'Saunaka' ) : 'Knowledge is of two types'. " -Mantram-4.






Mundaka-Upanishad


Chapter-1,


Section-1,


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.

Next : Discussion-3. "Sri  Swami  Adi  Sankaracharya  on  this  ........."
