MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-1.

MANTRAM-9. { Realisation  of  Self  in  human  body  through  purification  of  mind }

Discussion-2. "Self  is  the  Light  of  the  Intellect"

This  doubt  has  raised  itself  only  in  the  confused  understanding  of  an  half-educated  Upanishad-pandithan.

This  mantram  becomes  perfectly  clear  when  we  understand  what  all  intellect  has  to  enquire  into  and  judge.

When  once  the  pure  intellect  has  discriminated  the  finite  matter  envelopments,  identifying  with  which,  we  have  come  to  forget  our  real  nature  and  have  come  to  act  and  strive  as  though  we  are  the  seekers,  the  meditation,  with  the  intellect,  has  ended.

Thus  when  the  Upanishad  says  here  that  the  instrument  of  realizing  the  Self  is  the  Light  of  Intellect,  we  only  mean  that  when  we  have  become  fully  aware  of  all  the  items   in  us  which  "WE  ARE  NOT,"   what  remains  is  our  own  Resplendent  Nature  of  Divinity.

It  is  thus,  by  a  process  of  discriminative  analysis     and  reasoned  elimination,  that  we  come  to  recognize,  in  the  vaults  of  our  beings,  " the  TRUTH  or  the  REALITY."    

NEXT : Discussion-3. "the  Self  emerges  to  assert  and  shine  itself"
