CHAPTER-3.

SECTION-2.

MANTRAM-4.  { "Other  means  of  Self-realisation." }

Discussion-9. "linga  ....continued )"

The  linga   here  does  not,  therefore,  mean  the  colour  of  the  robes  or  the  condition  of  hair  on  the  head  or  the  kind  of  utensils  or  the  mattress  used.

In  short,  it  is  not  the  external  symbols  of     'Sanyasin'   ,  as  some  would  have  it.

In  the  days  of  the  scriptures,  the  Rishi-s  placed  a  greater  emphasis  upon  the  mental  and  intellectual  conditions  and  qualities  in  a  seeker  than  upon  the  mere  external  marks / symbols
of  spirituality  which  the  disciple  may  with  convenience  carry  about  him.
