Mundaka-Upanishad

Chapter-1,

Section-1,

Mantram-6. ( Explanation  about  the  higher  Knowledge )


Discussion-7. "Attributeless"   ....


Attributes  are  properties  ----  chemical  and  physical  ---  noticed  by  the  sense-organs  or  felt  by  the  mind  or  deducted  by  the  intellect.

In  short,  attributes  can  only  be  in  the  'objects  illuminated  by  the  subject.'

Again,  a  substance  or  a  thing  is  that  which  has  some  atribute,  i.e,  wherever  there  are  objects  too.

The  world  of  substance  is  finite,  so  then,  the  Eternal,  Changeless  Reality  could  have  no  attribute,  because  to  consider  the  Supreme  as  having  attributes  is  to  condemn  It  to  extinction.
