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-5. "lying  in  the  cave ( heart )" .......

The  vitality  of  these  centres  retires  and  take  rest,  as  it  were,  in  the  cave  of  he  heart  ( where  intelligence  remains )  when  the  individual  is  in  the  state  of  deep  sleep.

That  the  word  "Prana"  here  cannot  be  the  vital  air  is  clearly  shown  by  this  suggestive  description  that  they  move  and  function  in  the  cave  of  the  heart.


The  pictorial  language,  thoug  it  adds  a  beauty  and  extra  joy  to  the  glory  of  the  scriptures,  is  to  us  a  stumbling  block  in  understanding  the  correct  meaning,  because  we  are  not  used  to  it  in  these  days  of  commercial  literature  and  cable-gram  poetry!!

END.

Next  :  Mantram-9.
