Section-1,

Mantram-6. ( Explanation  about  the  higher  Knowledge )


Discussion-10. "Guru Rishi Angira  and  disciple Saunaka" ....



When  'Rishi  Angira'  thus  defined  the  Supreme  in  the  above  exhaustive  and  supra-mental  definition,  surely,  'Saunaka',  the  disciple,  must  have  got  more  than  confused  and  confounded!

Under  the  very  weight  of  significance  of  the  statement,  the  poor  disciple,  must  have  felt  himself  crushed!

There  must  have  been  an  expression  of  disbelief  and  confusion  of  his  own  sense  of  hopelessness  spreading  on  his  face.

As  though  to  reassure  his  disciple  that  this  Eternal  Factor  is  realizable  by  every  trained  and  prepared  intellect,  the  kind  Rishi  explains  positively  that  every  pure  intellect  made  sensitive  for  the  purpose  can  discover  this  Reality.

The  word  used  here  "pari-pasyanti" is  not  merely  a  'sudden  vision' or  a  'hasty  glance' but  a  thorough,  intimate,  personal,  subjective  experience  'Whole.'

And  with  this  discovery,  the  mantram  states,  "the  discoverer  discovers  the  Supreme  as  the  source  of  all  the  finite  world  of  names  and  forms."

Next  : Discussion-11. "Bhuta Yoni"  significance of  this  term.....(see first  part  of  the  .last   line  of  the  mantram)
