MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-1.

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

 Discussion-4. "Vidya  is  our  real  nature"......

"Meditation  is  the  means,  realisation  of  the  Self" :   is  the  goal,  and  between  meditation  and Self  Realisation  there  is  no  relationship  as  the  "cause  and  effect."

Meditation  only  removes  the  veil  over  the  Self,  and  the  Self  is  realised  by  itself  in  its  own  light.

The  cloud  rolls  away  with  the  breeze  and  the  sun  shines  from  behind  it,  of  its  own  accord,  in  its  own  light.

Meditation  is  as  much  responsible  for  Self-Realisation  as  the  breeze  is  responsible  for  creating  the  Sun!

"Meditation  ends  Avidya;  Vidya  is  our  real  nature."
