Commentaries are very recommended, without them the sense included in short Sanskrit mantras and Vedic deities would seem too complicated. May He preserve the teacher! Me, may He protect!
My teacher, may He protect! May He protect us both together, may He nourish us both together, may we work conjointly with great energy, mahanarayanaa our study be vigorous and effective, may we not mutually dispute or may we not hate any! Let there be peace, and peace, and peace – in me, in my environment and in the forces that act on me!
Mahā Nārāyaṇa Upanishad | Full | With Commentaries
Upanishar Lord of creation, who is present in the shoreless waters, on the earth and above the heaven and who is greater than the great, having entered the shining intelligences of creatures in seed form, acts in the foetus which grows into the living being that is born.
A person is not called a father before his marriage and the birth of a child.
He becomes a father after these events. The person, however, remains the same.
Man is developed from an embryo. That in which all this universe exists together and into which it dissolves, That in which all the kpanishad remain enjoying their respective powers—That certainly is whatever that has been in the past and whatever indeed is to come in the future. Parabrahman alone is the one cause of everything else and there is no other cause for His existence.
It is the cause of the other four elements—air, fire, water, and earth. Hence it is stated here that this Reality alone constitutes the worlds which have been in the past and which are to be in the future.
The world which we experience at present receives its existence and self-evidence from It alone. The various gods and powers functioning in the universe and in man have their glory by delegation from Parabrahman.
He by whom the space between heaven and earth as well as the heaven and the earth are enveloped, He by whom the sun burns with heat and gives light, and He whom the sages bind in the ether of their hearts with the string of meditationin whom—The Imperishable One— all creatures abide. The creation of the world from Brahman through avyakta has been described generally in the previous stanzas. Though he upanishax become the uupanishad universe of variety and multiplicity, yet, He remains one and undivided.
Mahanarayaa is beyond the taint of darkness and sensuous knowledge. That alone is right and That alone is true That alone is the venerable Brahman contemplated by the wise. That alone being the navel of the universe, sustains manifold the universe which arose in the mahanarayxna and which springs to existence at present.
Mahanarayana Upanishad: Swami Vimalananda: : Books
So He is not only present in every atom of the universe but also in every quality, action, and relation This is the truth illustrated in the present stanza. The first term stands for the physical, moral, and spiritual laws or the order of things evident everywhere, and the second one denotes individual and social acts of truthfulness.
The other view is the one which takes into consideration all the differences, relations, attributes, and qualities, noticed in the universe as embedded in that Reality. The year also was born from Him. He milked water and also these two, the firmament and the heaven. Some of the traditional systems of philosophy hold that nature, time and the like are also eternal and independent sources of the universe. They are born from Him. The magnitude of the divisions of time is graded thus:.
If God has become the universe, it is easy for one to perceive Him in the manifold objects presented before the senses. But seeing the world is not grasping God. If it were so, one could easily understand the length, breadth, and central part of God.
It is said here that man cannot grasp like that by his understanding. Even if we accept the verdict of modern science and conceive the circumference of the universe to be of the order of million light years Light travelsmiles a second. Those who have dominion over others and have the freedom to exercise power, enjoy renown in the world.
