Mundakopanishad :

Chapter-2.

Section-1.

Mantram-5. { Sequence  of  Creation  from  the  Imperishable }

Discussion-3. "The  concept  of  Space  ....."

The concept  of  Space  (  and  the  consequent  sense  of  limitation )  has  come  to  us  a  reaction  of  out  past  actions,  for  the  enjoyment  of  which  each  one  of  us  has  taken  this  incarnation.

That  moment  any  one  of  us  transcends  the  bondage  of  Space-Time,  no  ore  can  this  world  and  the  experiences  of  this  world  assert  themselves  in  our  cognition.


We  have  already  found  that  the  physical  Sun  has  its  own  philosophical  import.

Philosophically,  the  Sun  represents  the  Sum - Total  of  reactions  of  all  the  actions  done  by  the  total  living  world  ----  from  WORM  to  MAN.

As  such,  it  is  a  wondrous  analogy,  poetry  at  its  best,  to  say  that  the  Sky  is  the  Fire whose  fuel  is  the  Sun.


The  difficulty  in  understanding  it  is  in  this  :  Plato  has  taken  the  pen  of  Shelley  to  paint  Cleopatra  in  order  to  represent  the  mighty  beauty  of  the  universe!!!

In  Bharatham  alone  we  find  philosophy  and  poetry,  moulded  together  into  one  idol  of  beauty  and  perfection.

Next : Discussion-4. " From  the  Moon,  the  Clouds  ---  the  Second  Fire" ......
