Discussion - 1. "they  ( Rishi-s )  never  dared  to  claim  the  knowledge  as  their  own"  ......



We  have  already  seen  that  when  the  Rishi-s  of  the  Upanishad-s  gained  a  glimpse  of  the  Reality  during  their  white-heat  moments  of  meditation,  they  were  in  such  a  divine  state  of  an  all-consuming  inspiration  that  they  never  dared  to  claim  the  knowledge  as  their  own.


Each  Master,  after  his  own  personal  experience  of  the  Truth,  lived  the  ideal  life  of  self-restraint,  renunciation  and  detachment.

Into  their  all-blissful  life  always  entered  a  seeker  seeking  a  satisfaction  for  his  spiritual  unrest.

When  the  kindly  Masters  tried  to  guide  their  disciples,  they  did  not  claim  this  knowledge  as  their  own  but  only  quoted,  in  their  turn,  their  own  Masters.

Thus,  the  purity  of  the  scriptures  had  been  kept  up  by  this  tradition  of  a

"Divine-copy-right." .....
