Beyond the beyond || On Mundaka Upanishad (2021)

February 13, 2022 | Acharya Prashant

दिव्यो ह्यमूर्तः पुरुषः स बाह्याभ्यन्तरो ह्यजः ।
अप्राणो ह्यमनाः शुभ्रो ह्यक्षरात्परतः परः ॥

divyo hyamūrtaḥ puruṣaḥ sa bāhyābhyantaro hyajaḥ
aprāṇo hyamanāḥ śubhro hyakṣarātparataḥ paraḥ

He, the divine, the formless Spirit, even He is the outward and the inward, and He the Unborn; He is beyond life, beyond mind, luminous, supreme beyond the immutable.

~ Verse 2.1.2

✥ ✥ ✥

Acharya Prashant: A few words now related to the ineffable Truth.

“He, the divine, the formless Spirit, even He is the outward and the inward, and He the unborn, aja.” Ja denotes birth; aja means unborn, unborn and undying. “He is beyond life, beyond mind, luminous, supreme beyond the immutable.”
