MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-2.

MANTRAM -7.{ Nature  of  Liberation.}

Discussion-1. "Fifteen Kala-s" ....

Fifteen  Kala-s : -

In  the  *Prasnopanishad,* we  have  this  discussion  about  Kala-s.

There,  while  giving  a  complete  answer  to  the  question  of  'Sukesa',  'Pippalada  Rishi'  had  explained  the  Sixteen  kala-s  as  follows  : -


1. Prans,  2. Faith,  3. Akasam ( Ether ),  4. Air,  5. Fire,  6. Water,  7. Earth,  8. Senses,  9. Mind,  10. Food,  11. Strength,  12. Penance  ( Self-Control ),  13. Mantra-s,  14. Karma-s,  15. World-s,  16. and  in  the  world-s,  Names  also.


This  above  enumerated  list  may  read  a  mad-man's  diary  unless  we  read  it  with  plenty  of   philosophical  thinking  and  ultimately  discover  inter-relationship.

Though  this  is  not  very  essential  for  our  direct  understanding  of  our  Mantram-7,  under  discussion,  I  feel  that  you  would  not  be  satisfied  without  some  explanation.

Hence,  in  haste  I  shall  try  to  indicate  their  sequence.

*Note -*

*Here  is  the  description  of  the  merger  of  the  microcosm  back  to  the  macrocosm  in  the  discourses  on  Prasnopanishad-6.4.*

Next : Discussion-2. "The sequence of above  said  kala-s .....1. Prana : -..."

To be continued  ....
