Mundakopanishad :

CHAPTER-2.

SECTION-2.

Mantram-9. { Self-effulgent  Brahmam}

Discussion-3. "The  Golden  Sheath,  the  highest" ..... continued,

Thus  the  Bliss-sheath  is  in  fact  a  state   of  negative  happiness  i.e,  it  is  state  wherein  there  is  no  pain.

No  pain  is  not  joy,  no  agitation  is  not  peace.

Thus  Bliss - sheath  is  considered  "golden" because  it  is  nearest  to  the  Awareness,  the  seat  of  all  Consciousness.

This  sheath  is  considered  the  highest  or  the  subtlest,  again  because  it  is  the  inner-most  realm  which  is  reached  while  transcending  both  the  mind  and  the  intellect.

It  is  in  this  "Kosam" ( Sheath )  that  the  great  seeker  rediscovers  himself  to  be  nothing  other  than  the  pure  Consciousness,  the  divine  in  him,  descibed  here  as  " stainless".

Next : Discussion-4. "Truth  is  without  stains".....

To be continued  .....
