Mundakopanishad : " Explanation about the higher Knowledge " Mantram-7.





Mundaka-Upanishad


Chapter-1,


Section-1,


Mantram-7. ( "Imperishable  Brahmam" ----  cause  of  the  Universe )


Discussion - 1.


The  Imperishable  ( Brahmam / Lord ) alone  is  real.

The  things  and  beings  arise  from  Him ( Brahmam ) and  merge  back  into  Him,  just  as  innumerable  sparks  fly  upwards  from  the  blazing  fire  and  after  burning  themselves  out  merge  back  into  the  fire.


All  creatures  descend  from  the  Imperishable  ---  from  Him  the  sky,  from  the  sky  the  rain,  from  the  rain  the  food,  and  from  the  food  the  seed  in  male  which  he  gives  to  female.


The  Self-Luminous  "BRAHMAM  IS  ALL",  ever  present  in  the  hearts  of  all.

The  Upanishad  literature  is  very  very  brief  and  suggestive,  ordinary  person  even  with  very  high  qualifications  may  not  get  the  ideas  embedded  in  the  mantram, a  teacher  is  essential.


The  economy  of  the  scriptural  style  is  flouted  here  in  this  mantram.
