Chapter-1,


Section-1,


Mantram-s-1,2. Lineage  of  teachers :


Mantram-1.


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."
