MUNDAKA  UPANISHAD


 CHAPTER-3.


SECTION-1.


MANTRAM-1. { Another  method  of  pointing  to 'Brahmam'  ----   two  birds  staying  on  the  same  tree.  }


Discussion-2. "about  two  birds   ......."


The  two  birds,  mentioned  here  as  living  in  great  friendship  upon  the  self-same  tree,

are  1. the  ego  and  2. the  divine  Spark  of  Life  in  us.

The  limited  ego-centre  identifying  itself  with  the  mind  and  the  body  comes  to  believe  that  it  is  the  sufferer  and  the  enjoyed.

Thus,  the  ego  suffers  the  joys  and  sorrows  of  life.

The  ego  has  all  appointments  and  disappointments  of  life.

All  successes  and  failures  belong  to  the  ego  and  not  to  the  "ATMA."

The  "DIVINE  SPARK" of  life  "NEITHER  PERFORMS  ANY  ACTION  NOR  HAS  THE  VANITY  THAT  IT  IS  THE  ENJOY-ER  OR  THE  SUFFERER."

Next : Discussion-3. " Another example ...."
