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

Discussion-4. "Jivatma's  sense  of  separateness" ......


If  the  arrow  is  sharp  and  the  archer  shhots  it  with  a  steady  grip,  the  flying  arrow  can  penetrate  its  goal  and  get  itself  embedded  completely  in  the  very  object  which  it  strikes.


Similarly,  the  individual  soul  which  had  its  sense  of  separateness,  because  of  its  wrong  identifications  with  its  'matter'  envelopment,  loses  its  sense  of  individuality  when  it  gets  completely  detached  from  its  contacts  with  'matter',  during  its  meditations  uon  the  pregnant  formulae  'OM".

Once  it  is  devoid  of  its  pre-occupations  with  the  false,  it  rediscovers  itself  in  its  true  native  glory  to  be  nothing  other  than  the  Supreme,

All-pervading  Reality  Itself.

That  the  realization  at  its  best  is  the  experience  of  oneness,  is  nowhere  so  clearly  and  pointedly  hinted  at  in  the  entire  Upanishadik  literature  as  it  in  these  two  mantram-s.

Next : Discussion-5. "Apramattena  Veddhavyam" ...
