Section-1,


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


Discussion-4. Introduction -part-4.


This  great  disciple,  rich  and  prosperous,  respected  and  revered  in  the  society,  approached  his  Guru  according  to  the  Upanishad  'in  the  prescribed  manner.'

Today,  we  find  a  Commander-in-chief  or  a  Premier,  a  Minister  or  a  Secretary  visiting  a  Master  by  appointment,  when  the  'Mandalesvara  or  the  Mathadhipathi' is  advised  to  arrange  pipers  and  drummers  from  the  railway  station  to  the  'Asramam'! 

Such  an  attitude  of  arrogance  or  even  equality  is n ruinous  and  suicidal  for  the  seeker.
