Chapter-2.


Section-1.


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


Discussion-6. Recap to  be   continued  ...


An  incomparably  beautiful  and  inimitably  complete  analogy  is  used  here  to  explain  this  relationship.

The  individual  is  nothing  but  the  Supreme  itself,  inasmuch  as,  the  individual  has  risen  from  it,  exist  in  it,  and  merges  back  into  it.


The  example  of  a  spark  from  a  bid  fire  is  made  use  of  here.

The  spark  has  risen  from  the  fire-place,  and  it  floats  about  and  around  the  very  same  fire-place  ---  not  very  far  away  ---   and  when  it  has  exhausted  itself  in  eating  up  the  material,  the  ash  is  thrown  out,  and  the  fire  in  the  spark  disappears;  and  since  it  cannot  go  anywhere  else,  it  merges  the  very  fire  in  the  fire-place.
