MUNDAKOPANISHAD

CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-2.

MANTRAM -7.{ Nature  of  Liberation.}

Discussion-5.  "The Role of the food  taken  in .....  MIND"

The  food  yields  strength  or  vitality  in  us.

When  a  mind  is  thus  well  fed  and  full  of  vitality,  thoughts  manifest;  and  a  very  controlled  and  regulated  thought-flow  over  a  chosen  subject-matter  is  called  "Reflection " ( Mantram).

Mantram  is  a  formula  or  symbol  repeated  often  in  order  to  facilitate  the  above-mentioned  process  of  Reflection.

And  Mantra-s  chanted  in  a  certain  sequence  accompanied  by  the  various  rituals,  constitute  the  "Karmam."

"As  the  Karmam,  so  the  World" is  very  well-known  to  us"**

A  world  is  impossible  without  names  and  forms.

Thus,  the  sixteen  ring-lets  constitute  the  chain  of  bondage-and-sorrow  provided  by  the  delusive  world  which  is  the  creation  of  the  very  creative  urge  in  us!

Next : Discussion-6. "the  sixteen-faceted  Purushan...."

**1. The karma  of  certain  individual  or  group  are  so  evil,  as  the  dirty  political  parties   such  as  congress, communists,  all  regional  parties  led  by  kejriwal, lalu, mulayam, mamata, nitish, karunanidhi, jayalalitha,   right and left fronts  of  kerala,  so  they  are  and  their  associates  and  several  student  wings!

** 2. All  muslim  and  christian  organisations  and  parties  led  by  narrow  minded,  selfish  religious  heads whose  karma  is  to  grab  benefits  in  the  name  of  religious  minorities,  and  abuse  Hindus,    so  they  are  and  their  followers  and  student  wings!!

One Swamiji from Chinmaya Mission, is received, at some venue for Gita-Yajna!

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…
