MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-2.

MANTRAM-1.{Desireless  men  get  liberated  by  worshipping  "A Knower  of  Brahmam" }

Discussion-5. "In  the  Sun  there  is  no  Darkness" ...."In  pure  Wisdom  there  cannot  be  any  trace  of  Ignorance "

The  Brahmam  here  mentioned  is  the  "Conditioned  Brahmam"   and  not  the  "Unconditioned  Supreme  Reality"   ---  here  mention  is  made  of  Brahmam  which  is  the  material  cause  for  the  world  of  names  and  forms,  that  bang  upon  our  cognition  at  every  moment.

In  short,  it  is  the  Brahmam  conditioned  in  "Avidya"    that  is  meant  here,  and  not  the  Pure  Knowledge-Absolute,  beyond  all  traces  of  both  "Vidya  and  Avidya."

In  this  connection ,  it  is  profitable  to  note  that  Knowledge  or  Pure  Consciousness  is  the  light  that  illumines  within  us  both  the  ideas  of  ignorance  as  well  as  the  concepts  of  knowledge.

Just  as  in  the  Sun  there  is  no  darkness,  it  being  nothing  but  a  mass  of  light,  so  too,  "IN  PURE  WISDOM  THERE  CANNOT  BE  ANY  TRACE  OF  IGNORANCE"      


"THIS  IS  THE  THING  THAT  IS  NOT  PRESENT  TODAY  IN  STUDENTS, PARENTS, TEACHERS, AND  THE  PUBLIC ( INCLUDES ALL A.....Z)

Discussion-1.

In the last mantram the great Rishi summarizing his transcendental wisdom declared, "all this is, verily, "AUM".

Continuing the declaration, the Rishi is now giving a discourse to the student and he says, "all this is BRAHMAM."

Naturally, it is clear that the great Master is wanting the student to understand that AUM is BRAHMAM.

AUM is not only indicates the Spiritual Centre in the Individual, but also r…

Discussion-7.

The Absolute 'this' is then the Spiritual Center in ourselves; and since Spiritual Factor is Eternal and All-pervading, the Center in ourselves is the Center everywhere.

The individual-Self is the Universal-Self.

And hence the Sruti says, "This Atma is BRAHMAM."

This oft-quoted declaration is considered to be major text ( Mahavakyam ) by the Vedantik-seekers.

A Mahavakyam is a scriptuaral declaration…
