MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-2.

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

Discussion--6. "reach  a  greater  state  of  perfection"

Thus,  if  the  ancient  Bharatiya  philosophers glorified  the "State  of  desirelessness"  as  the  end-all  and  be-all  of  life  it  was  because  they  knew  a  technique  of  making  us  reach  "a  greater  state  of  perfection,"  from   where,  when  ewe  look  down,  the  flimsy  toys  of  life  would  all  look  ridiculous,  stupid  and  childish.

How  far  they  were  wise  is  clearly  noticeable  and  fully  realizable  to  any  one,  who  can  read  the  signs  of  the  times  in  the  passing  events  of  modern  history  ---  "except,  perhaps,  the  uneducated  India  atheists."

"In  the  perfect  knowledge  that  we  have  already  with  us  all  the  things  that  we  desire  for,  to  be  desireless  is  certainly  a  much  more  glorious  state  of  fulfilment  and  happiness  than  to  eternally  strive  and  struggle  to  produce  and  accumulate  the  changing  demands  of  the  mad  and  uncontrolled  desires."
