MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-1.

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

Discussion-2.  "as  the  cause,  so  the  result"..

That  the  Truth  cannot  be  perceived  by  the  senses,  has  already  been  explained.

Here,  the  'Upanishad-s'    add  that  Truth  cannot  be  gained  through  rituals  and  penances  ( second line of mantram ).

It  is  ordinarily  the  belief  with  all  faithfuls  that  worship  and  sincere  penance ( Tapas ) do  reveal,  for  the  worshipper,  "  GOD  OR  TRUTH"    

"This  is  a  fallacious  statement  in  the  Science  of  Religion,  and  is  a  logical  absurdity  in  thought"

Action  by  finite  individuals  making  use  of  the  finite  objects,  cannot  result  in  an  achievement  which  is  "INFINITE  AND  ETERNAL"

OUT  OF  A  BALL  OF  CLAY  ( MUD )  WE  CAN  NEVER  MAKE  A  CHAIN  OF  GOLD;
 
" AS  THE  CAUSE,  SO  THE  RESULT"

Next : Discussion-3. "Glory  of 'Tapascarya'  "  ..
