MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-1.

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

Discussion-7. "Jnana   Prasada"  ...first  two  words  in  the  third  line  of  the  mantram....

Thus,  the  more  we  renounce  and  get  over  the  negativities  in  us,  the  more  purified  we  become  in  our  mind  and  intellect,  and  the  purer  the  mind,  the  greater  the  divinity  which  that  mind  comes  to  reflect.

And  it  is  this  that  is  meant  here  by  "Jnana  Prasada."

The  dualists  have  claimed  for  this  a  meaning  almost  amounting  to  a  "descent  of  grace  from  the  Lord."    

In  bringing  such  a  meaning  out  of  this  mantram  they  had,  to  some  extent,  to  crush  the  mantram  into  an  ugly  discord.

Next : Discussion-8. "Realisation,  thereafter,  is  immediate  and  fruitful"

To be continued  ....
