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





Mundaka-Upanishad


Chapter-1,


Section-1,


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


Discussion-4. "Creation"  .....


The  moment  we  hear  of  Creation  in  our  tradition  of  associated  ideas,  we  come  to  picture  the  Lord  as  pot-maker  sitting  up  and  creating  the  world  out  of  a  substance  which  is  other  than  Himself.


This  is  denied,  and  this  wrong  concept  is  readjusted  in  our  mind,  by  this  mantram  with  its  picture  of  the  spider  creating  the  web,  not  out  of  anything  other  than  itself,  but  out  of  its  own  Stuff.


Herein,  the  philosophy  of  the  Logicians  is  positively  blasted;  they  believe  that  there  is  'PRADHANA' without  which  Creation  is  impossible.

Next : Discussion-5. "Spider  picture" .....

To be continued  .....
