MUNDAKOPANISHAD
    CHAPTER-3.
    SECTION-2.
   Mantram-9. ( Knower  of  Brahmam  becomes  Brahmam. )

Discussion-14. "Amrtattva"  or  immortality ...."

This  "Amrtattva" or  immortality   is  never  the  status  of  the  body.

There  are  many  deluded  souls  who  run  after  quack  saints  and  quaint  sages  enquiring  for  some  secret  process  by  which  they  can  reach  physical  immortality!

This  is  an  absurd  hope  and  a  pleasant  contradiction  in  terms.

Body  is  material;  and  matter  is  finite.

"Immortalizing  Mortality" is   an  attempt  which  is  literally  a  "Continued  death."

But   the  state  of  immortality  is  a  state  which  can  be  reached  and  experienced  vividly,  when  the  knots-of-the-heart  are  bombed  out  of  existence.

What  constitutes  the  knots  of  the  heart  and  how  we  can  redeem  ourselves  from  the  bondage  have  been  very  exhaustively  discussed  earlier.

Discussion on Mantram-9. ENDS.
Next : Mantram-10. { Instructions  on  transfer  of  this  Supreme  Wisdom}.
