MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-1.

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

Discussion-5. "Visuddha-sattva"  third  line  and last combined words  of  this  mantram

Hence  it  is  that  the  Sruti  says,  "When  the  understanding  becomes  calm  and  refined,"  then,  while  engaging  himself  in  the  great  vocation  of  man,  viz.  meditation,  the  individual  realizes  the  "Supreme  Self" ( Paramatma )  within   himself.

The  purity  of  the  mind  is  the  most  important  factor  for  this  great  achievement,  and  hence  the  emphasis  on  "Visuddha-Sattvam."

During  the  endless  pilgrimage  of  each  individual,  during  his  travail  through  the  womb  of time-space  and  causality  confusion   in  the  lower  equipments,  such  as  inert  stones,  living  vegetables,  knowing  animals,  and  thinking  man,  he,  the  seeker  has  gained  in  his  inner  composition  thick  layers  of  animalisms  and  instincts.

To  rub  them  off  and  to  purify  the  antah-karana  is  the  process  of  "Spiritualism" 

Next : Discussion-6. "Man  is  not  a  helpless  victim  but  a  Master  of  his  instincts"...  

To be continued  ....
