The highest acts come from the highest within || On Mundaka Upanishad (2021)

February 17, 2022 | Acharya Prashant

तस्मादृचः साम यजूंषि दीक्षा यज्ञाश्च सर्वे क्रतवो दक्षिणाश्च ।
संवत्सरश्च यजमानश्च लोकाः सोमो यत्र पवते यत्र सूर्यः ॥

tasmādṛcaḥ sāma yajūṃṣi dīkṣā yajñāśca sarve kratavo dakṣiṇāśca
saṃvatsaraśca yajamānaśca lokāḥ somo yatra pavate yatra sūryaḥ

From Him are the hymns of the Rig Veda, the Sama and the Yajur, initiation, and all sacrifices and works of sacrifice, and dues given, the year and the giver of the sacrifice and the worlds, on which the moon shines and the sun.

~ Verse 2.1.6

✥ ✥ ✥

Acharya Prashant (AP): The scriptures, the spiritual books, are the highest works of man. Every action comes from a point within our consciousness. Behind the action is an actor, and in the actor there is a choice: the actor could be a lowly one, the actor could be a higher one.
