Mundaka-Upanishad


Chapter-1,


Section-1,


Mantram-3. " Sounaka's  question  after  approaching  the  teacher.... 'Angira.'  "

 Discussion-6.  "This  prescribed  rule ............"


This  prescribed  rule  is  given  to  us,  may  be  to  picture  to  us  the  attitude  and  the  way  in  which  in  the  ancient  days  the  disciples  reached  their  Masters,  or  may  be,  Sruti  has  an  intention  of  indicating  to  us  the  ideal  manner  in  which  even  today  a  true  seeker,  who  wants  to  dedicate  himself  and  become  a  full  time  sadhaka,  must  approach  his  chosen  Guru.


Sri swami  Adi  Sankaracharya  puts  it  to  us  that  this  statement  must  act  as  an  injunction  prescribed  for  the  past,  as  well  as  for  the  present  and  also  for  the  future,  just  as  a  lit  lamp  kept  on  the  threshold  must  equally  light  up  the  interior  of  the  room  as  well  as  the  outer  corridors  of  the  house.
