MANTRAM -7.{ Nature  of  Liberation.}


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


This  explanation  of  'Pippalada'   has  become  very  famous  in  the  'Bharatiya'  (Hindu)  scriptural  tradition,  and  we  have  very  many  repeated  references  to  the  spiritual  entity  in  us  as "the  Sixteen  faceted  Purushan."

In  this  mantram  under  discussion,  the  Sruti  is  trying  to  explain  what  happens  to  the  parts  
( Kala-s ),  when  the  'Purushan' is  realized  by  the  'Yogin'  in  'Samadhi.' 

"The  Kala-s  enter  into  their  elements" just  as  the  'Serpents' enters  into  the  'Rope'  and  when  the  rope  is  under  the  light  of  a  torch,  the  "true  knowledge  of  the  rope  ends  the  delusive  serpent." 

Next : Discussion- 7. "The  devata-s  ( senses)  enter  ...."
