SECTION-2.

MANTRAM-3.{ "Foremost  means  of  Self-realisation  seeking  the  Self  alone." }

Discussion- 6. "Summation"...

1.


"To  Swami Adi  Sri  Sankaracharya,  Godhood  is  an  ascent  of  human  to  the  highest  pinnacle  of  his  revolutionizing  possibility!"

2.


"To  Sri  Ramanujacharya  and  Sri  Madhvacharya,  God  descends  into  the  human  and  by  His   Divine  Touch   of  Grace  divinizes  the  individual  devotee!" 




In  fact,  whether  the  river  "reaches"  the  ocean  or  the  ocean " receives"     the  river,  the  effect  is  the  same.

Truth  remains  uncontradicted.

{In  both  the  cases,  of  the  river  reaching  the  ocean  or  the  ocean  receiving  the  river,  the  river  in  its  final  stage  loses  its  separate  quality  and  merges  to  become  "one  with  the  ocean."

I am  here  only  anticipating  a  metaphor  which  Sruti  Herself  makes  use  of  in  the  same  section  a  few  manta-s  ahead.

Discussion of Mantram-3. ENDS.
