Mundaka-Upanishad


Chapter-1,


Section-1,


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


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


According  to " Swami  Sri  Adi  Sankaracharya,"   the  implication  of  the  very  question  directly  demands  such an  answer.

The  question  concealed  in  its  words  not  only  indicates  a  thirst  to  know what  that  Supreme  Knowledge  is,  but  also  expresses  at  once  a  doubt  in  the  mind  of  the  student  as  to  wether  there  can  be  such  a  Knowledge.

The  import  of  the  question  is  :  "Is  there  is  a  'Knoeledge,'   O  Teacher,  "Knowing  which  all  other  Knowledges  become  Known,  and  if  there  be  such  a  Knowledge,  in  that  way  is  it  different  from  the  ordinary  Knowledges  Known  to  us  and  how  can  I  attain  it? "
