Mundakopanishad :

 CHAPTER-2.

SECTION-2.

Mantram-s. 3.{ Methods  of  penetrating  Brahmam } & 4. { The  analogy  of  penetration }

Discssion-2. "Penetrating  Truth-Center" ....

The method  of  penetrating  the  Truth-Center  in  us  with  our  mind,  is  the  theme  of  these   two  mantam-s ( 3&4 )  for  which  no  better  metaphor  could  have  been  employed  than  that  of  bow-and-arrow.

The bow  here  is  the  chanting  of  "OM" with  a  knowledge  of  the  significance  of  "OM".

The  arrow  is  the  Life-Center ( Jiva)  of  the  individual.

The  "awareness  in  us,"  propelled  by  the  motive-force  generated  in  voiceless  Ecstasy,  during  the  thoughtless  meditation,  "flies" to  touch  "Total  Awareness"  the  "Brahmam,"  the all-pervading  Reality.

Next : Discussion-3. "Method of penetration   in  detail"....

To be continued  ..
