MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-1.

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

Discussion-1. "Cetas" -...

The  instrument,  in  making  an  all-out  and  sincere  effort  at  the  rediscovery n of  the  Self,  is  declared  here  to  be  a  purified  intellect.

"Cetas"  is  the  " Illuminating  Principle" in  the  intellect;  it  is  intelligence  in  the  intellect.

Thus,  one  can  realize  the  "Atma" through a  process  of  knowing.

Certainly,  this  is  to  be  very  carefully  understood  or  else  this  "Mantram" would  be  contradicting  the  earlier  mantram  ( Chapter-.3.  mantram-7. "Acintyam  rupam  -  -  note  the  explanation  in  the  discussions ),  where  the  Supreme  Reality  has  already  been  discussed  as  "inconceivable  and  unmovable."

Aspirants  of  all  classes  have  been  raising  this  question  from  the  beginning  of  time  as  to  how,  through  'Sadhana  and  meditation,  can  human  mind  and  intellect,  which  are  themselves  infinite,  realize  the  Infinite  Paramatma.

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

To be continued  ....
