Mundakopanishad :

 CHAPTER-2.

SECTION-2.

MANTRAM-1.{  Pointers  to  the  nature  of  Brahmam  and  advice  how  to  know  it. }

Discussion-8. "Our Eternal Nature" ...

This  Self  includes  and  incorporates  in  itself  the  essence  behind  all  that  has  form  and  all  that  has  no  form  ---  all  the  world  of  objects  and  the  world  of  thoughts  and  ideas.

Here  is  a  subtle  hint  that  mere  withdrawing  of  our  identifications  with  the  world  of  objects  and  reveling  in  the  inner  world  of  our  own  thoughts  and  emotions  cannot  make  us  reach  the  Reality.

Thus  to  meditate  upon  the  forms  of  the  Lord  or  to  repeat  His  glory  and  thereby  to  get  into  a  state  of  blissful  unawareness  of  the outer  world  is  not  in  itself  the  goal;  one  will  have  to  transcend  even  the  formless  world  of  thoughts  and  ideas  to  reach  the  "No-man's  land  of  our  Eternal Nature."

Next : Discussion-9. "The  one  beyond  the  understanding  of  creatures" ...

To be continued  ....
