Mantram-s-1,2. Lineage of teachers :
Discussion-3. "Sarva vidya pratistha" ......
Ordinarily what we understand by "knowledge" is only an assortment of modified knowledge and not knowledge as such Upanishads deal ---as they do, with the "Vital Principle" in us, which is the light in the intelligence and because of which all other sciences are made possible.
No dead scientist will any longer work at his table, nor will a dead artist add one more stroke to the half-finished work on his canvas.
No music can come out of a dead musician, no words from the speaker when life has flown out of him.
So then, since all our knowledge are possible only in a medium of life, the science that directly gives a knowledge of it, is indeed the foundation of all other knowledge --- "Sarva vidya pratistha."
