 CHAPTER-2.

SECTION-2.

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

Discussion - 4. "Self-Discovery..........."


In  order  to  gain  this  Self-discovery,  the  unavoidable  quality  to  be  developed  in  discriminative  intellect.

An  intellect  when  it  functions  through  the  instrument  of  the  heart  develops  in  itself  the  divine  quality  termed  as  discrimination.

Boiled  milk  on  cooling,  gathers  the  cream  on  its  top;  a  noble  heart  streaming  over  a  well-lit
smokeless  intellect,  when  allowed  to  cool  down  after  a  time m of  boiling,  gathers  out  of  its  very  essence  the  cream  of  discrimination.

The  process  of  brining  discrimination  to  the  surface  is  the  process  of  " Vedantam  Sadhana."

Study  of  "Sastram-s"  and  "Satsangam-s"  make  the  heart's  contents  boil  up  over  the  ignited  intellect.

When  the  contents  cool  down  through  meditation,  discrimination  creams  up.

Such  seekers  who  have  thus  gathered  a  wealth  of  discriminative  intellect  are  termed  in  "Vedantam  as  dhirah."

Such  a  pilgrim,  rich  in  this  rare  wealth,  fulfils  the  pilgrimage  and  comes  to  enjoy  the  "State  of  Perfection"  which  is  his  eternal  heritage.
