 CHAPTER-3.


SECTION-1.


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


Discussion-6.  "remaining  as  a  pure  witness  .... "


To  remain  as  a  pure  witness  rooted  in  our  Real  Nature,  as  the  ALL-PERFECT,  ALL-BLISSFUL,  PURE-CONSCIOUSNESS,  IS  to  "TRANSCEND" all  pains,  limitations  and  sufferings.

So  long  as  we  are  standing  on  the  escalator,  we  shall  be  moving   in  spite  of  ourselves;  in  case  one  standing  on  the  escalator  wishes  to  take  rest  on  the 'terra  firma',  he  can  do  so  only  if  he  steps  off  from  the  moving  escalator  to  the  way-side   footpath.

Similarly,  so  so  long  as  we  are  living  and  working  on  the  ever - moving and  ever - changing  material  plane,  peace  and  joy  shall  be  ours.

In  case  we,  from  our  false  identifications,  can  step  off  from  the  moving  medium  to  the  Infinite,  Eternal,  Unchanging  plane  of  Pure  Consciousness,  we  shall  have  the  unchanging  peace  and  death-less  glory.


Identifying  ourselves  with  the  changing  finite,  we  become  the  sorrowing  bird;  identifying  ourselves  with  our  Eternal  Nature  as  Pure  Life,  we  shall  rediscover  the  peace  and  dignity  of  the  witnessing  bird.


In  the  next  mantram  this  idea  is  more  clearly  brought  out.

Next : Mantram-2, { Annihilation  of  sorrow  through  God  realization }

To be continued  .....
