MANDUKYA UPANISHAD

INTRODUCTION-3.

The  nearest  to  the  frog,  then,  in  these  aspects  is  a  true  Mahatma  in  his  physical  habit  and  behaviour  in  life.

If  he  is  a  true  one,  he  lives  away  from  crowd  in  some  unknown  valley  of  the  Himalaya-s  and  lives  there  in  meditation  reveling  himself  upon  himself; these  men  of  perfection  in  their  self-centred  seclusion  live  all  alone  the  life  meditation : by  themselves  in  themselves.

During  the  rainy  season  ( Caturmasya )  they  come  out  into  the  world  to  roar  the  Truth,  which  would  certainly  sound  crude  and  rough  to  men  of  sensuousness  and  materialism.

The  Seers  know  not  how  to  sing  melodious  songs  of  sentimental  poetry  or  emotional  music.

They  only  know  how  to  declare  the  Truth,  unpolished  and  effeminate-ness,  Truth  in  its  native  beauty  and  expression  may  sound  as  the  croaking  of  a  Frog!

But  during  the  weeping  days  of  rain,  on  the  noisy  days  of  rumbling  thunder  and  in  the  still  hours  of  threatened  storms,  this  croaking  of  the  frogs-in-life  ( meaning  the  Truth --- croaking  of  prophets  and  Seers )  has  certainly,  an  unlimited  charm  and  solace.
