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





Mundaka-Upanishad


Chapter-1,


Section-1,


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


Discussion-2. 'the  three  different  pictures' ....


The  economy  of  the  scriptural  style  is  flouted  here.  if  the  three  different  pictures  given  are  only  to  emphasise  the  one  and  same  point  of  comparison.

The  Rishi-s  have  the  unique  style  of  using  minimum  words  with  maximum  significance  in  the  sacred  Mantra-s.

Certainly,  analogies  are  the  only  instruments  of  expressing  the  inexpressible.

But  even  in  the  usage  of  analogies  in  the  scriptures,  we  never  find  an  extra  stroke  added  to  it,  just  for  its  own  sake  or  for  mere  literary  beauty.

Next : Discussion-3. "Evaluation  of  triple  picture"......

To be continued  ...
