Mantram-7.  { Description  of  Lower  'Brahmam'  and  mode   of  contemplation  upon  it. }

Discussion -2. "Brahmapura "....

"Brahma-pure "  : - The term  is  to  indicate  the  spot  where  'Brahmam' or  'Total  Self'  ( referred  as   / Paramatma / God /  Reality / Infinite / Absolute / Truth  etc., by  us )  resides.

It  is  only  figurative  explanation  in  terms  of  'finite'  to  indicate  the  place  of  the  "Infinite."

This  land  of  'Self '  ( Jivatma )  is  described  as  luminous,  because  'Consciousness'   is  the  very  illuminator  of  all  the  objects  and  the  illuminating - principle  in  all  the  planes  of  "Consciousness."

This  is  considered  to  be  located  in  the  "Cave  of  the  'Heart'  " because  it  is  there,  among  vibrations  of  the  intellect ( buddhi )  and  the  waves  of  thought,  that  a  seeker  can  struggle  to  discover  the  " Pure  Consciousness " ( Paramatma ).

Though  seated  in  the  heart, " He  is  the  very  substance  of  all  the  activities  of  the  body,  the  vital  airs,  the  mind  and  the  intellect."
