MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-1.

MANTRAM-10. { A  desirer   of  prosperity  should  worship  the  Knower  of  Brahmam }

Discussion-3. "Isvara  Krpa,"  and  "Atma  Sakti" ...

Sadhana  or  spiritual  training,  develops  in  the  sadhakan  a  mental  capacity  to  think  or  to  wish,  to  feel  or  to  determine,  to  reject  or  to  desire,  one  solitary  idea,  to  the  total  and  complete  exclusion  of  all  other  dissimilar  or  even  complementary  thoughts.

Thus  a  man  who  was  ordinarily  ineffectual  and  helpless,  comes  to  rise  above  the  circumstances  of  his  life  and  even  rule  over  them  when  he  develops  in  yoga.

The  "devotees"  would  call  this  ( mental  capacity  )  as  " Isvara  Krpa,"   while  the  "Vedantin-s"  would  call  it  as  "Atma-Sakti,"    and  the  "Yogin-s"   would  name  it  as  a  glory  of  the  "Kundalini." 

In  fact,  all  of  them  are  talking  of  one  and  the  same  phenomenon;  when  an  individual  gets  more  and  more  integrated  in  his  physical,  mental  and  intellectual  personalities,  more  and  more  he  becomes  a  power  to  be  reckoned  with,  a  potency  most  irresistable.

Out  of  even  the  worst  of  us  such  genius  can  be  brought  out  through  the  divine  technique  of  "YOGA."

Discussion-1.

In the last mantram the great Rishi summarizing his transcendental wisdom declared, "all this is, verily, "AUM".

Continuing the declaration, the Rishi is now giving a discourse to the student and he says, "all this is BRAHMAM."

Naturally, it is clear that the great Master is wanting the student to understand that AUM is BRAHMAM.

AUM is not only indicates the Spiritual Centre in the Individual, but also r…

Discussion-7.

The Absolute 'this' is then the Spiritual Center in ourselves; and since Spiritual Factor is Eternal and All-pervading, the Center in ourselves is the Center everywhere.

The individual-Self is the Universal-Self.

And hence the Sruti says, "This Atma is BRAHMAM."

This oft-quoted declaration is considered to be major text ( Mahavakyam ) by the Vedantik-seekers.

A Mahavakyam is a scriptuaral declaration…
