MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-2.

MANTRAM-2.{ "Cessation  of  cycle  of  re-birth  through  desireless-ness." }

Discussion-4. "Vairagyam"...

The  modern  atheists,  the  secularists,  the  materialists  etc.,  have  often  come  to  discuss  with  us,  with  us,  with  a  seeming  dignity  of  wisdom   and  a  boastful  intelligence,  that  it  is  the  glorification  of     "desirelessness"      in  our  scriptures  that  has  wrought  material  havoc  to  the  quick  prosperity  in  this  country.

"Strange  are  the  arguments  that  the  wolf  could  give  it  is  impatient  to  make  a  meal  of  the  lamb!"   


To  these  comrades,  "VAIRAGYAM  OR  DESIRELESSNESS"    is  that  negative  state  of  mental  coma,  into  which  a  person  falls  when  poisonous  fumes  rise  in  the  bosom  as  his/her  disappointed  desires  purify  there!!

It  is  so,  the  great  Rishi-s  of  the  ancient  Bharatham  would  not  have  recommended  it  as  the  supreme  state  of  Perfection.

NEXT : Discussion-5. "disappointed fox  and  a  Nero  rejecting "- "grapes  are  sour  and  grapes  not  really  perfect"!!!

To be continued  ....
