CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-1.

MANTRAM -7. { Nature  of  the  Supreme  Abode }

Discussion-2. "Divyam  and  Acintya-rupam" .....

Divyam  and  Acintya-rupam ---- Self-luminous   and  in-conceivable  or  unknowable  :-

The  Spark  of  Life  in  us  is  certainly  the  illuminating  principle  behind  our  sense-organs  and  our  mind  and  intellect.

It  lights  up  everything,  including  the  light - giving  objects  such  as  the  Sun  and  Moon,  the  Stars  and  the  Fire.

In  fact  in  its  very  nature  it  is  nothing  but  a  mass  of  light : - not  "light" in  the  ordinary  sense  in  which  we  know  it,  but  as  Sri  Ramakrishna  Paramahamsa  would  say ,  "Light  without  its  physical  properties  and  known  qualities."

In  short,  it  is  Awareness  or  Consciousness.

If  Truth  be  Awareness,  it  is  evident  how  our  intellect  cannot  understand  the  Awareness  behind  it.

We have  already discussed  these  points  in  the  earlier  sections  exhaustively.

Next : Discussion-3. "Farther  than  the  Farthest" ....
