Mantram - 11. [ What men with knowledge ( Upasana ) attain ].
Discussion-1. "Slaves of ritualism and Men of REALISATION ........."
Comparing the slaves of ritualism with the men of Realisation, 'Sruti' is bringing forth the glory of 'Sannyasam' to the forefront by this mantram.
'Mother Sruti' says that those who perform 'Karma-s' with the desire-born motives reach only temporary joys, from where they will have to come back to this painful finite world of mortality.
On the other hand, those rare few who gained the required spirit of renunciation, and who have retired into the life of meditation in solitude, depending for their existence only upon help reaching them in unexpected chances ---- to them, 'Sruti' promises a perfect success.
