MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-1.

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

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


Ordinarily,  though  we  are  intelligent,  our  entire  attention  is  always  employed  with  the  sense - organs    and  their  respective  objects.

When  that  intellect  is  purified,  i.e,  when  withdrawn  from  its  playful  preoccupation  with  the  toy-world,  outside  ad  within,  ---  the  Self  shines  forth  in  its  own  resplendency.

That  which  makes  us  a  stranger  to  ourselves  is  our  own  drunken  preoccupation  with  our  false  identifications  and  our  wasteful  play  with  the  senses.

"Once  we  withdraw  ourselves  from  them,  as  the  Sun  from  behind  the  clouds,  the  Self  emerges  to  assert  and  shines  itself"

END.

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