MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-1.

MANTRAM - 5. { Helpful  means  to  Self-realization

Discussion-3. "Tapas "...


"TAPAS  IS  BROODING-THOUGHT"  : -  This  is  not  the  unintelligent  gross  TAPAS  of  the  body  which  is,  to  some  extent,  good  to  a  certain  type  of  men  in  teaching  them  self-control,  both  of  body  and  mind.

When  one  has  practiced  the  vow  of  truthfulness  and  meditation  ( tapas),  one  becomes  more  and  more  fit  to  delve  into  the  secret  caves  of  the  scriptures  and  understand  the  real  import  of  the  mantra-s.

Thus,  the  stydent  who  had  his  own  initiation  into  the  sacred  texts  earlier  comes  to  gain  brighter  and  greater  glimpses  of  an  ever-increasing  prospect  of  newer  significance  and  ampler  imports  in  the  texts  of  the  mother  Sruti.
