MUNDAKOPANISHAD : CHAPTER-3. SECTION-2. Mantram-10. { Instructions on transfer of this Supreme Wisdom}.




MUNDAKOPANISHAD
    CHAPTER-3.
    SECTION-2.
   Mantram-10. { Instructions  on  transfer  of  this  Supreme  Wisdom}.

Discussion-8. Qualification-2. "Well  versed  in  the  Upanishadik  literature"   ( 'Srotriya' next term second  line  of  this  Mantram ) :-

When  a  seeker  has  practiced  for  long  the  ritualistic  worship,  he  develops,  by  his  life  of  self-control,  concentration  and  purity,  more  and  more  in  his  capacities  of  the  mind  and  intellect.

These  are  to  be  brought  into  full  play  in  the  study  of  the  Jnana-kandam,  meaning  the  Upanishad-s.

Mere  spiritual  practices,  without  a  thorough  study  of  the  scriptures,  would  be  as  criminal  a  wastage       as  an  engine  kept  running  all  day  through,  without  harnessing  its  horse-power  to  turn  out  work.

Next : Discussion-9. Qualification-3. "Who  pursue  the  meditation  on  Brahmam"  ( 'brahma-nishtah' next term ( last ) in the second line of  this  Mantram )
To be continued  ....
