Mantram - 11. [ What  men  with  knowledge  ( Upasana )  attain ].


Mantram-11.


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.
