Mundaka-Upanishad


Chapter-1,


Section-1,


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


 Discussion-7. "Now a days  ........."  


Now-a-days,  not  only  that  we  rarely  get  the  chance  to  meet  a  true  Master  but  even  we  meet  him  we  know  not  how  to  approach  him.

Men  of  realisation  are  like  flutes,  by  themselves  they  cannot  sing;  the  music  is  to  be brought  out  of  them  by  our  blowing.

To  go  to  a  Master  and  to  sit  in  silent  adoration  is  also  a  true  ' Satsangam' :  but  this  method  is  available  only  between  a  Master  and  a  very  highly  advanced  seeker.

Ordinarily,  we  must  pelt  the  Master  with  all  doubts  --  absurd,  stupid,  imaginary,  deep  and  superficial.

Only  when  we  start  asking  questions  can  he  get  a  glimpse  of  our  personality  and  only  when  he  knows  us,  can  he  open  his  mouth  and  serve  each  of  us  on  the  Path-Divine.

In  the  Upanishads  we  find  that  disciples  approached  the  Guru  and  each  asked  a  very  pertinent  and  deep  question  of  pregnant  import  and  endless  message.
