Mantram-5. ( Nature of higher and lower knowledge)
Discussion-3. 'Aksharam' ....
Here is a beautiful pinning upon the word "Aksharam" ( see the last line of the mantram), and probably in no other literature in the world has, ever a man, so successfully expressed two different meanings of such depth of significance and wealth of import through the literary trick called punning.
'Akasharam,' means that which has no destruction ( immortal ).
And it also means the alphabet.
