107 – by Swami Nirviseshananda Tirtha – Essence of Mundakopanishad Part 1

1006 Views | 9 months ago

In this satsang, Nutan Swamiji recaps the essential points discussed during the series of satsangs on Mundakopanishad.

Swamiji beautifully lays out how the Upanishad, through its three parts (Mundakas), leads a seeker step by step towards Self-realisation. The first mundaka calls out the limitations of Rituals and decries those holding on to them as the Supreme. The Upanishad firmly declares that all types of knowledge are inferior except that with which the imperishable is realised, which makes us immortal. To gain that 'para vidya', one must humbly approach a Guru, who has realised the Truth, and seek his guidance.

The second mundaka describes Brahmavidya, the knowledge of the Transcendental Truth, how this knowledge is different from all other object knowledge, for it is non-dual. When brahmavidya is actualised, it confers all fold fulfilment in life. The last mundaka presents the supreme Vishuddha Sattva State, and unravels the highest pursuit, the sadhana of desirelessness, asserting that when all desires are dissolved, the mortal man becomes immortal in this very life!

Swamiji will be discussing 'Voice of Upanishads'. The Global Satsang will be based on Kathopanishad and Mundakopanishad. | Live Satsangs with Spiritual Masters on Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday at 8 pm IST/10:30 am EDT/ 10:30 pm MST.
