SECTION-2.

MANTRAM-5. { Description  of  attaining  Brahmam.}

 Discussion-2. "Herein  the  beggar  is  satisfied  in  the  very  knowledge  of  his  new  identity  and  its  corresponding  status  in  life."

The  seeker  having  realized  the  Self  becomes  completely  satisfied  in  his  own  knowledge  of  his  rediscovered  Self-hood.


A  beggar  in  the  street  was  by  accident  discovered  to  be  the  only  surviving  member  of  a  family  of  chieftains  who  ruled  a  neighbouring  tribe.

The  mere  discovery  of  himself  to  be  no  more  the  beggar,  homeless  and  destitute,  but  is  in  fact  a  chieftain  of  a  tribe,  is  sufficient  to  give  the  beggar  a  joyous  satisfaction.

Herein  the  beggar  is  satisfied  in  the  very  knowledge  of  his  new  identity  and  its  corresponding  status  in   life.


Similarly,  when  the  seeker  who  was  having  till  now  the  dreadful  feeling  that  he  was  an  impotent,  mortal  weakling,  rediscovers  himself  to  be  the  Spiritual  Centre  of  the  entire  universe,  the  very  knowledge  is  more  than  sufficient  to  give  him  all  happiness!
