MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-2.

MANTRAM-4.  { "Other  means  of  Self-realisation." }

Discussion-5. "Excessive  austerity  ...."


Again,  excessive  austerity  such  as  too  many  fasts,

too  many  sleepless  nights,

very  long  and  painful  pilgrimages,

endurance-feats  in  the  puja-rooms  etc.,

are  all  undertaken  and  diligently  pursued  by  some  aspirants  in  the  hope  of  gathering  a  large  return  of  spiritual  development,  

in  a  very  short  period,  at  compound  interest!


The  Science  of  Self-Perfection  denies  all  such  blitz  movements  any  chance  at  all  in  storming  the  citadel  of  Truth.  

Next : Discussion-6. "unintelligent  Pandita-s....."

To be continued  ....
