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."
