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


Mantram-5.



Discussion-5. "If  the  Sun  be  thus  .............'RAY OF THE SUN'......"  



If  the  Sun  be  thus  "a  bundle  of  our  'Karma  phala-s'  ( fruit  of  actions ),"  then  in  the  greatest  of  all  philosophical  text-books ---

the  Upanishad-s  Rishi-s  have  naturally  the  right  to  make  use  of  the  idioms  and  expressions,  as  they  used  in  this  Mantram.


In  the  light  of  the  above,  the  'ahuti'   in  the  form  of  the  'sun's  ray,'  guiding  the  performer  to  the  realms,  where  he  could  enjoy  the  fruits  of  his  actions  is  perfectly  scientific  divinely  poetic,  "Ray  of  the  Sun"  would  then  be  a  term  denoting  the  very  'good  mental  impressions,'
created  in  the  minds  of  the  performer  during  conscious  and  devoted  good  actions ( Karma-s ).
