MUNDAKA  UPANISHAD


 CHAPTER-3.


SECTION-1.


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


Discussion-4. "THE  REAL  'I'  AND  THE  FALSE  'I'  ..........."


The  two  birds  : - the  real  'I'  and  the  false  'I'  ----   live  in  one  and  the  same  tree,  the  body.

{ Here  the  tree  is  our  body,  and  the  two  birds  are   the  REAL  'I'  and   THE  FALSE  'I'   within  us }

The  ego,  in  its  delusions,  goes  on  pecking  at  the  hanging  fruits  and  comes  to  suffer  joy  and  sorrow,  satisfaction  or  dis-satisfaction,  according  to  the  taste  of  the  fruits  pecked.

Some  are  ripe,  some  are  unripe;  ripe  ones  are  sweet, ( joy )  unripe  ones  are  sour  ( sorrow ).

But,  the  other  bird,  which  all  along  remains  in  unperturbed  tranquillity,  merely  goes  on  witnessing  the  joys  and  sorrows  of  the  bird  busy  with  the  fruits!

Next : Discussion-5. Tree,  Two  birds,  then  the  third  "FRUITS"  what  is  the  role ?
