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







Mundaka-Upanishad


Chapter-1.


Section-2. ( Rituals )


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


Mantram-5.


Discussion-12. Summation....  "with  the  added  interesting  meanings  on  Devata..."



In  the  "Veda  Vani" of  Prof. S.K. Gupta, it  is very  interesting  to  read  the  different  meanings  of  "Devata."


We  also  know  that  mind,  in  its  function  of  reception  and  correlation,  is  the  ruling  and  governing  factor  of  all  sense-organs.

In  that  sense,  the  scripture  accepts  the  mind  as  the  king  of  the  'Indriya-s'  and  naturally,  its  presiding  deity  becomes  none  other  than  'Devendran',  the  king  of  'Deva-s.'

Briefly  then  the  mantram  means  the  conscious  actions,  performed  with  a  deep  desire  to  gain  the  fruits  thereof,  develop  the  necessary  traits  and  impressions  in  the  mental  plane.

The  outward  actions  leave  a  clear  trail  upon  the  mental  stuff,  seems  to  be hint  suggested  by  the  secret  meaning  of  this  sacred  mantram,  when  it  is  expressed  in  terms  of  our  modern  science  and  our  university-vocabulary.
