Mundakopanishad :

CHAPTER-2.

SECTION-2.

Mantram-9. { Self-effulgent  Brahmam}

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


We  have  already  seen  that  the  human  personality  is,  for  purposes  of  philosophical  apprehension,  taken  to  be  the  spirit  enveloped  by  five  concentric  circles  of  'matter' : 

1. the  food - sheath,

2. the  vital-air-sheath,

3.  the  Mental - sheath,

4.  the  intellectual - sheath,

5.  and  the  Bliss - sheath.


The  attempt  of  the  seeker  is  to  withdraw  his  entire  attention  from  his  identifications  with,  the  outer  layers.

When  a  seeker  has  thus  renounced  his  attachments  to  the  body,  the  vital-air,  mind,  and  intellect,  spiritually  he  transcends  them  all  and  this  state  is  considered  to  be  unearthly,  the  blissful  and  divinely  peaceful,  because  all  our  peace  and  joys  are  shattered  due  to  the  play  of  pain-giving  instruments  such  as  the  body,  the  mind,  and  the  intellect.
