MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-1.

MANTRAM-8. { Unique  means  of  Self-realisation  ---  purification  of  mind. }


Discussion-1. Words  are  symbols  of  experiences  lived  by  by  the  mind  and  so  words  cannot  express  deeper  experiences  or  transmind  joys.

Even  when  experiences  are  rather  intimate  and deep,  words  fail.

Naturally,  the  experiences  in  the  white-heat  of  intense  meditation  cannot  be  expressed  in  terms  of  a  frail  language  which  is  insufficient  even  to  express  my  love  for  my  own  beloved!

Hence  the  scripture  says,  " SELF  IS  NOT  GRASPED  BY  WORDS." 

It  is  only  through  mutual  feelings  that  one  can  understand  love,  a  real  lover  can  appreciate  the  depths  of  sincerity  even  through  silence.

So  too,  it  is  in  " the  silence between  the  stanzas,"  as  it  were,  that  the  Sruti  takes  Her  courtiers  into  Her  ample  bosom  where  they  experience  the  joy  and  the  "Glory  of  godhood!"   
Next : Discussion-2.  "as  the  cause,  so  the  result"..

To be continued  ....
