SivanandamurthyBy satguru

sri sri sivananda murthy


In the second Adhyaaya (containing three Vallis – 4th, 5th and 6th) in the 6th and 7th Mantras of the 4th Valli, it has been stressed that the Paramaatma is in the cave of the Heart and it is the Creator of the Devas. But in the individual’s heart, the Aatma wears the image of the man. Angushtamaatrah purushah madhye aatmani tishtati (Aatmani – one’s own self) (Valli-4, Mantra-12). In the Mantra-13, (Angushtamaatrah purusho jyotirivaa dhoomakah) it is again stressed that it is a ‘body of light’ without smoke.

To say that this is a Yogopanishad, we may find evidence in the 3rd Mantra of 5th Valli also:
Uoordhvam praana munnayatyapaanam
Madhye vaamanamaaseenam visvedevaa up0aasate
The short person sitting in the Heart-centre of a human body directs the Praana upwards and the Apaana downwards; HE is worshipped by all the Devas.

The Mantra 4 of the 5th Valli reads:
Asya visramsamaansya sareerasthasya dehinah
Dehaadvimuchyamaanasya kimatra parisishyate
Etat vai tat
- Once that ’short individual’ leaves the body what remains in the body?
(to be continued)
