CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-1.

Mantram-6. { Glory  of  Truth }

Discussion-4. : "Knowledge of reality"...

With  the  knowledge  of  Reality,  the  entire  amount  of  ignorance  ( about  it )  in  us  must  automatically  end.

Thus,  when  ignorance  has  ended,  the  source  of  desire  also  gets  choked;  naturally  the  flow  of  scorching  thoughts  end,  and  the  devastating  acts  and  competitions  exhaust  themselves.

The  term  aptakamah  ---  for  which  there  is  no  equivalent  or  even  a  powerfully  expressive  term  in  the  english  language  ---  clearly  indicates  the  perfect  state  of  tranquility  in  a  seer,  both  within  and  without.

The  seekers  free  from  deceit  and  delusion,  pride  and  vanity,  criminality  and  falsehood,  and  having  no  desire,  enthusiastically  seek  and  surely  discover  the  realm  of  Truth.

What  this  realm  is  and  what  are  its  specialities  will  be  explained  in  following  mantram-s.  


Next : Mantram-7. { Nature  of  the  Supreme  Abode }
