Mundakopanishad : Chapter-2, Section-1, Mantram-1. { Birth of all beings from "Brahmam" like sparks from fire. }




Mundakopanishad :


Chapter-2.


Section-1.


Mantram-1. { Birth  of  all  beings  from  "Brahmam" like  sparks  from  fire. }


Discussion-2.  "the Supreme"  ...


The Supreme,  being  Infinite,  will  not,  and  cannot  come  within  the  expressiveness  of  language  which  is  but  an  expression  of  the  finite.

The  Infinite  cannot  be  expressed  in  terms  of  the  finite  and  yet,  no  other  scripture  in  the world,  we  can  most  assuredly  say,  has  succeeded  in  pointing  out  to  us  the  Infinite  so  successfully  as  the  Upanishads  have  done.


Some  wondrous  expressions  pointing  to  the  Infinite  and  some  perfect  techniques  of  explanation  are  employed  in  this  chapter.


In  short,  we  may  say  that  without  this  chapter  "Mundakopanishad" could  not  have  been  considered  as  the  scripture  at  all.
