Mundakopanishad : " Explanation about the higher Knowledge " Mantram-6.






Mundaka-Upanishad


Chapter-1,


Section-1,


Mantram-6. ( Explanation  about  the  higher  Knowledge )


Discussion-2. Rishi   tells  further  .....


After  descibing  the  contents  of  the  'lower  knowledge'  here,  the  Rishi,  in  his  infinite  kindness,  is  making  a  daring  attempt  to  explain  and  express  the  'Infinite'  in  terms  of  the  infinite.

Naturally,  we  who  are  accustomed  to  transactions  in  the  finite  world,  find  it  difficult  to  comprehend  and  grasp  the  full  import  of  the  expression  used.


If  a  statement  in  higher  mathematics  is  not  intelligible  to  an  advocate  or  a  lawyer,  he  must  be  certainly  mad  to  pass a  judgement  thereby  and  declare  that  higher  mathematics  is  meaningless.

And  yet  this  is  exactly  what  you  and  I  are  doing :


Without  equipping  ourselves  with  the  necessary  preliminary  knowledge,  we  jump  into  the  great  Science  of  Living  and  Life,  as  discussed  in  these  text-books,  the  Scriptures,  and  when  we  cannot  understand  them  we  unjustly  criticise  it  to  our  own  damnation!
