Mundakopanishad : Chapter-2, Section-1, Mantram-8. { Objects, organs and their presiding deities are also the creation of Brahmam }.



Mundakopanishad :

Chapter-2.

Section-1.

Mantram-8. { Objects,  organs  and  their  presiding  deities  are  also  the  creation  of  Brahmam }.

Discussion-1. "On  a  rough  reading  the  above  ........  confusion  and  confusion  ....."

On  a  rough  reading,  this  would  naturally  confuse  anyone,  for,  in  its  literal  meaning,  it  has  no  sense  at  all.

But  it  is  the  style  of  the  scriptures  to  use  such  code-language.

The  "Sruti" mantra-s  are,  as  it  were,  very  brief  lecture-notes  taken  down  by  the  most  intelligent  students  while  listening  to  the  discourses  of  the  Ancient  Rishi-s.

If  anyone  were  to  read  the  class-notes  of  a  clooege-student,  he  is  sure  to  get  himself  confused,  unless  he  himself  has  attended  the  lectures.

Similarly,  this  mantram  looks  as  though  it  is  a  short  formula  only  to  bring  to  the  memory  all  that  the  student  had  heard  in  the  lecture  theatre.

Next : Discussion-2. "Supreme  Self" .....
