FROM DARKNES TO LIGHT...

Reading Dr Dr A G Krishna Warrior’s English Translation of “Maha Upnishad” ..Superb gift from a friend. I share some verses as these appear in the Book …

(1)
. ‘The mind of the wise, I deem, is a loving spouse as it pleases; a protective parent as it guards and a friend as it marshals the best (arguments)” 
(V 80)


(2)
‘The marks of a man of discrimination are spontaneous indifference to experiences that do not come of their own accord and hearty acceptance of those that do.”
(V 171)


(3)
“Those men who know this world as well as what is beyond conform to all things. They neither shun nor seek the ways of the world.”
(V 171 )


(4)
‘If you depend on this objective (world), you have a mind and are in bondage. If you reject the objective (world), you have no mind; you are liberated.”
(V I 35)


(5)
“Beyond (worldly) perception, the limit of one’s hope (horizon) extensive, there is no existence of any thing other than pure cognition.”


(V 47)
(6)
“All the miseries, hankerings, unbearable mental pain are lost in people with a calm mind, like darkness in the sun. All creatures subside (attain calmness) in a serene person like children mischievous or soft, in their mother.”

(IV 28-29 )
