CHAPTER-2.

SECTION-2.

Mantram-9. { Self-effulgent  Brahmam}


Hiranmaye  pare  kose  virajam  brahma  nishkalam,

tac-chubram  jyotisham  jyotih-tad  yaditma-vido  viduh.


hiranmaye  =  golden;

pare  =  the  highest,  innocent  sheath;

kose  =  sheath;

virajam  =  stainless;

brahma  =  Brahmam;

niskalam  =  indivisible;

tat  =  that;

subram  =  pure;

jyotisam  =  of  all  lights;

jyotih  =  light;

tat  =  that;

yat  =  which;

atma-vidah  =  knowers  of  the  Atma;

viduh  =  know.


"The  stainless,  indivisible  'Brahmam',   the  pure,  the  light  of  all  lights,  is  in  the  inner  most  sheath  of  the  golden  hue --- the  highest.  That  is  what  the  knowers  of  the  Atma  know."

Discussion-1. Here  we  begin  a  three - stanza  peroration  with  which  the  'Sruti' is  concluding  this  section  and  naturally,  we  have  here  a  glorious  repetition,  deliberate   and  purposeful  for  emphasizing  the  meaning  already  explained  in  the  section.

Next : Discussion-2. "The  Golden  Sheath,  the  highest" .....

To be continued  ....
