Section-2. ( Rituals )



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


Mantram-9.



Discussion-1. "Sruti  is  not  angry  ........ "


This  mantram  is  again  a  repetition  for  the  purpose  of  emphasis.

Sruti  is  not  angry  in  the  ordinary  sense  of  the  term,  her  anger  is  like  the  anger  of  a  mother,  when  her  child  has  not  succeeded  in  life,  as  she  had  planned  him  to.

Here  the  actual  word  "balah"  ( children )  is  used,  while  mentioning  the  "blind  followers  of

ritualism."

In  her  endless  love  for  the  generation,  she  cannot  stand  the  sight  of  even  one  single  soul,  wandering  in  the  jungles,  having  lost  his  way.

In  this  mantram,  we  must  hear  only  the  love-call  of  the  'mother  Sruti'  to  those  who  missed  the  way,  to  come  back  to  the  grand  road  to  Truth.

Next : Discussion-2. "ritualism  is  but  a  market-place  ......"

To be continued   ........
