Mundakopanishad : [ Description of the sad state of knowledge-less ( devoid of Upasana ) rituals ]. Mantram-s. 8 to 10.





Mundaka-Upanishad


Chapter-1.


Section-2. ( Rituals )


Mantram - 8 to 10. [ Description  of  the  sad  state  of  knowledge-less  ( devoid  of  Upasana )  rituals ]


Mantram-9.


Discussion- 4.  Summation .



This  is  equal  to  saying  tat  these  men,  wise,  energetic,  devoted  and  sincere,  when  in  them  ritualism  has  fulfilled  itself  ----  pursue  this  wrong  path  of  wasteful    stupidity  only  because  of  the  germs  of  "desires,"  that  still  breed  in  their  hearts.


Now  the  diagnosis  is  complete  and  the  cure  is  suggested  by  scriptures.


In  every  religion  in  the  world,  there  is  one  and  the  same  way,  namely,  to  be  intelligently  discriminative   and  be  poignantly  aware  of  the  world  of  objects.


In  the  following  mantra-s,  we  have  the  prescription  given  out  by  the  "Mother  Sruti" herself.

END.
