Mundaka-Upanishad


Chapter-1.


Section-2. ( Rituals )


Mantram-5 & 6.  ( Attainment  of  heaven  by  performing  'Agnihotram'  rirual  properly )


Mantram-5.


Discussion-2.  " Sun  in  this  mantram    ......"



Philosophically,  the  sun  stands  not  for  the  self-effulgent,  ever-burning,  hot-orb  of  the  heavens  around  which  the  planets  and  stars  make  their  endless  pilgrimage,  but  it  represents  the  total  effects  of  all  'Karma-s  done  by  the  entire  living  generation  in  the  world  in  a  particular  period  of  time.


In  a  very  striking  manner,  this  idea  has  been  exhaustively  discussed  in  "Chandogya  Upanishad,  during  the  discussion  there  on  the  'Suryopasana' or  meditations  on  the  Sun."

Next : Discussion - 3. " Law  of  Karma ......"

To be continued   .....
