Chapter-2.

Section-1.

Mantram- 3. { "Brahmam - the Supreme  cause  of  all" }.

Discussion-2. "Analogy"  ......

In  Vedantam,  this  idea  is  explained  by  means  of  analogy  of  a  piece  of  clth  in  which  some  patterns  and  forms  are  woven  in  by  the  same  thread  as  that  of  the  cloth.

So  long  as  the  cloth  is  observed as  such,  the  names  and  forms  represented  in  it  are  true  and  real.


But  when  we  drew  out  the  thread  we  find  that  all  the  names  and  forms  merge  themselves  to  form  a  bundle  of  threads;  and  if  the  threads  are  unwound,  nothing  remains  but  a  quantity  of  cotton.


In  the  final  analysis,  the  names  and  forms  on  the  piece  of  cloth,  including  the  very  cloth-piece,  were  nothing  but  a  seeming  transformation  of  the  cotton-stuff.

Next : Discussion-3.Eternal  wisdom  is  that  Knowledge,   "Knowing  which  every  other  knowledge  becomes  known"  ...

To be continued  ....
