On
Siksha or Pronunciation 

Chapter
I

 

 

Invocation



Harih Om May Mitra be propitious unto us! May Varuna be propitious unto
us! May Aryaman be propitious unto us! May Indra and Brihaspati be
propitious unto us! May Vishnu, of wide strides, be propitious unto us!
Salutation to Brahman! Salutation to Thee, O Vayu! Thou indeed art the
visible Brahman. Thee indeed I shall proclaim as the visible Brahman. Thee
indeed, O Vayu, I shall proclaim as the right. Thee indeed I shall
proclaim as the true. May It protect me! May It protect the teacher! May
It protect me! May It protect the teacher! Om. Peace! Peace! Peace!

Lesson on Pronunciation



Om. We will expound siksha, or the science of pronunciation. It deals with
sound, pitch, quantity, force, modulation and combination. Thus is
explained the lesson on pronunciation.

Chapter
III

Meditation on the Combinations



May glory come on both of us together! May the light of Brahman shine
alike through both of us! Now we will explain the Upanishad on the Samhita
(combinations) under five heads: with regards to the worlds, the heavenly
lights, knowledge, progeny and the atman (body). People call these the
great Samhitas. First, with regard to the worlds: The earth is the first
form, heaven is the last from, the akasa is the union and the air is the
medium. Thus with regard to the worlds.

Next, with regard to the heavenly lights: Fire is the first form, the sun
is the second form, water is the union and lightning is the medium. Thus
with regard to the heavenly lights.

Next, with regard to knowledge: The teacher is the first form, the pupil
is the second form, knowledge is the union and the recitation is the
medium. Thus with regard to knowledge.

Next, with regard to progeny: The mother is the first form, the father is
the second form, the progeny is the union and procreation is the medium.
Thus with regard to the progeny.

Next, with regard to atman: The lower jaw is the first form, the upper jaw
is the second form, the speech is the union and the tongue is the medium.
Thus with regard to the atman.

There are the great Samhitas. He who meditates on these Samhitas, as here
explained, becomes united with progeny, cattle, the light of Brahman, food
and the heavenly world.

Prayer for Wisdom and Fortune



May He who is the bull of the Vedic hymns, who assumes all forms, who has
sprung from the immortal hymns of the Vedas-may that that Indra cheer me
with wisdom. O God, may I be the possessor of immortality! May my body be
competent; may my tongue be exceedingly sweet; may I hear abundantly with
my ears. Thou art the sheath of Brahman, concealed by intelligence. Guard
for me what I have learnt.

Om. Next bring me, without delay, fortune accompanied by wool and
cattle-fortune which always provides me with clothes and cattle, food and
drink. Increase them when they have been acquired and preserve them long
when increased. Svaha! May brahmacharins come to me variously! Svaha! May
brahmacharins come to me!. Svaha! May brahmacharins practise self-control!
Svaha! May brahmacharins enjoy peace! Svaha!

May I become famous among men! Svaha! May I become richer than the rich!
Svaha! O gracious Lord, may I enter into Thee! Svaha!

Four Mystical Utterances



Bhuh, Bhuvah, Suvah-these are, verily, the three utterances. Besides these
there is a forth, called Mahwah, which became known to the son of
Mahachamasa. That is Brahman, that is the Self. The other gods are its
limbs. Bhuh is, verily, this world; Bhuvah, the mid-region; Suvah, the
world yonder; Mahah, the sun. Through the sun, indeed, do all the worlds
become great. Bhuh is, verily, fire; Bhuvah, the air; Suvah, the sun;
Mahah, the moon. By the moon, indeed, do all the heavenly lights become
great. Bhuh is, verily, the Rik-verses; Bhuvah, the Saman; Suvah, the
Yajus; Mahah, Brahman. By Brahman, indeed, do all the Vedas become great.
Bhuh is, verily, the prana, Bhuvah, the apana; Suvah, the vyana; Mahah,
food. By food, indeed, do all the breaths become great. They, these four,
become fourfold. Four and four are the vyahritis. He who knows these knows
Brahman. All the gods bring offerings to him.


Chapter
VI

Meditation on Saguna Brahman



There is a space within the heart; in it lies the Person consisting of
mind, immortal and luminous. The Sushumna passes through the piece of
flesh which hangs down like a nipple between the two palates and ends
where the skull splits and the roots of hair lie apart. That Sushumna is
the path for the realisation of Indra. The souls of the aspirants, passing
through the Sushumna, rests in fire, represented by the vyahriti Bhuh; the
rests in the air, represented by the vyahriti Bhuvah.

He rests in the sun, represented by the vyahriti Suvah; he rests in
Brahman, represented by the vyahriti Mahah. He attains self-rule. He
attains the lordship of the mind; he attains the lordship of speech; he
attains the lordship of sight; he attains the lordship of hearing; he
attains the lordship of intelligence. Furthermore, he becomes this-he
becomes Brahman, whose body is space, whose nature is true, who delights
in life and rejoices in the mid, who abounds in peace, who is immortal.
Thus do thou, O Prachinayogya, contemplate.

Chapter
VII

Meditation on the Fivefold Nature and Individual



Earth, the mid-region, heaven, the quarters and the intermediate quarters.
Agni (fire), Vayu (air), Aditya (sun), Chandrama (moon) and the Nakshatras
(stars). Water, herbs, tree, space and the body. So much with reference to
material objects. Now with reference to the body: The prana, vyana, apana,
udana and samana; the eye, the ear, the mind speech and touch; the skin,
flesh, muscle, bone and marrow. Having thus ordained, a rishi said:
“Whatever exists is fivefold.” Through the fivefold one becomes
united with the fivefold material object.



Chapter
VIII

Meditation on Om



On is Brahman. Om is all this. This syllable Om is used to indicate
compliance. When they are told: “Om, recite,” they recite.
Uttering Om, they sing the Saman chants. With “Om, Som,” they
recite the prayers. Uttering Om, the adhvaryu priest gives the response.
Uttering Om, the Brahma gives assent. Uttering Om, gives permission to
offer oblations in the Agnihotra sacrifice. When a Vedic teacher wishes to
obtain Brahman he utters Om; thus desiring Brahman, he verily obtains
Brahman.


Chapter
IX

Disciplines



The disciplines are rightness and also the learning
and teaching; truth and also the learning and teaching; austerity and also
the learning and teaching; self-control and also the learning and
teaching; tranquillity and also the learning and teaching; fires and also
the learning and teaching; the Agnihotra sacrifice and also the learning
and teaching; guests and also the learning and teaching; social duties and
also the learning and teaching; procreation and also the learning and
teaching; propagation and also the learning and teaching. Truth alone,
according to Satyvachas of the line of Rathitara, should be practised;
austerity alone, according to Taponitya the son of Purusishti; according
to Naka the son of Mudgalya, the learning and teaching alone, for that is
austerity.

A Mantra for Daily Meditation



I am the mover of the tree. My fame rises high, like a mountain peak. My
root is the Supremely Pure. I am the unstained essence of the Self, like
the immortality that resides in the sun. I am the brightest treasure. I am
the shinning wisdom. I am immortal and undecaying. Thus did Trisanku
proclaim after the attainment of the Knowledge.

Chapter
XI

Exhortation to the Departing Student



Having taught the Vedas, the teacher thus instructs the pupil:

Speak the truth. Practise dharma. Do not neglect the study. Having brought
to the teacher the gift desired by him, the line of progeny is not cut
off. Do not swerve from the truth. Do not swerve from dharma. Do not
neglect welfare. Do not neglect prosperity. Do not neglect the study and
teaching of the Vedas.

Do not neglect your duties to the gods and the Manes. Treat your mother as
God. Treat your father as God. Treat your teacher as God. Treat your guest
as God. Whatever deeds are faultless, these are to be performed-not
others. Whatever good works have been performed by us, those should be
performed by you-not others.

Those brahmins who are superior to us-you should comfort them by giving
them seats.

Whatever is to be given should be given with faith, not without
faith-according to one’s plenty, with modesty, with fear, with sympathy.

Now, if there arises in your mind any doubt concerning any act, or any
doubt concerning conduct, you should conduct yourself in such matters as
brahmins would conduct themselves-brahmins who are competent to judge, who
are devoted and are not urged by others, and who are not too severe, but
are lovers of dharma.

Now, with regards to persons spoken against, you should conduct yourself
in such a way as brahmins would conduct themselves-brahmins who are
competent to judge, who are devoted and are not urged by others, and who
are not too severe, but are lovers of dharma.

This is the rule. This is the teaching. This is the secret wisdom of the
Vedas. This is the command.

This you should observe. This alone should be observed.

XII

The Peace Chant



May Mitra be propitious unto us! May Varuna be propitious unto us! May
Aryaman be propitious unto us! May Indra and Brihaspati be propitious unto
us! May Vishnu, of wide strides, be propitious unto us!

Salutation to Brahman! Salutation to Thee, O Vayu! Thou indeed art the
visible Brahman. Thee indeed I proclaimed as the visible Brahman. I
proclaimed the right. I proclaimed the true.

That protected me. That protected the teacher. Ay, that protected me, that
protected the teacher.

Om. Peace! Peace! Peace!

On Brahmananda or Bliss of Brahman

Chapter I – The Sheath of Food

Om. May Mitra be propitious unto us! May Varuna be propitious unto us! May
Aryaman be propitious unto us! May Indra and Brihaspati be propitious unto
us! May Vishnu, of wide strides, be propitious unto us!

Salutation to Brahman! Salutation to Thee, O Vayu! Thou indeed art the
visible Brahman. Thee indeed, O Vayu, I shall proclaim as the right! Thee
indeed, I shall proclaim as the true!

May It protect me! May It protect the teacher! May It protect me! May It
protect the teacher!

Om. May Brahman protect us both! May Brahman bestow upon us both the fruit
of Knowledge! May we both obtain the energy to acquire Knowledge! May what
we both study reveal the Truth! May we cherish no ill-feeling toward each
other!

Om. Peace! Peace! Peace!

Om. He who knows Brahman attains the Supreme.

On the above, the following mantra is recorded:

“He who knows Brahman which is Reality, Knowledge and Infinity,
hidden in the cave of the heart and in the highest akasa-he, being one
with the omniscient Brahman, enjoys simultaneously all desires.”

From the Atman was born akasa; from akasa, air; from air, fire; from fire,
water; from water, earth; from earth, herbs; from herbs, food; from food,
man.

He, that man, verily consists of the essence of food. This indeed is his
head, this is the right wing, this is the left wing, this trunk is his
body, this support is his tail.

Chapter
II

The Sheath of the Vital Breath

“From food, verily, are produced all creatures-whatsoever dwell on
earth. By food alone, furthermore, do they live and to food, in the end,
do they return; for food alone is the eldest of all beings and therefore,
it is called the panacea for all.”

“They who worship food as Brahman obtain all food. Food alone is the
eldest of all beings and therefore it is called the panacea for all. From
food all creatures are born: by food, when born, they grow. Because it is
eaten by beings and because it eats beings, therefore it is called
food.”

Verily, different from this, which consists of the essence of food, but
within it, is another self, which consists of the vital breath. By this
the former is filled. This too has the shape of a man. Like the human
shape of the former is the human shape of the latter. Prana, indeed, is
its head; vyana is its right wing; apana is its left wing; akasa is its
trunk; the earth is its tail, its support.

Chapter
III

The Sheath of the Mind

“The gods breathe after the prana, so also do men and cattle; for the
prana is the life of creatures. Therefore it is called the life of all.
Those who worship the prana as Brahman obtain a full life; for the prana
is the life of creatures. Therefore it is called the life of all.”

This is the embodied soul of the former. Verily, different from this,
which consists of the essence of the prana, but within it, is another
self, which consists of the mind. By this the former is filled. This too
has the shape of a man. Like the human shape of the former is the human
shape of the latter. The Yagur-Veda is its head, the Rig-Veda is its right
wing, the Sama-Veda is its left wing, the teaching is its trunk, the hymns
of Atharva and Angiras are its tail, its support.

Chapter
IV

The Sheath of the Intellect

“He who knows the Bliss of Brahman, whence all words together with
the mind turn away, unable to reach it-he never fears.”

This is the embodied soul of the former.

Verily, the different from this, which consists of the essence of the
mind, but within it, is another self, which consists of the intellect. By
this the former is filled. This too has the shape of a man. Like the human
shape of the former is the human shape of the latter. Faith is it head,
what is right is its right wing, what is truth is its left wing,
absorption is its trunk, Mahat is its tail, its support.

 

Chapter
V

The Sheath of Bliss

“The intellect accomplishes the sacrifice; it also accomplishes all
actions. All the gods worship the intellect, who is the eldest, as
Brahman.”

“If a man knows the intellect as Brahman and if he does not swerve
from it, he leaves behind in the body all evils and attains all his
desires.”

This is the embodied soul of the former.

Verily, different from this, which consists of the essence of the
intellect, but within it, is another self, which consists of bliss.

By this the former is filled. This too has the shape of a man. Like the
human shape of the former is the human shape of the latter. Joy is its
head, delight is its right wing, great delight is its left, bliss is its
trunk. Brahman is its tail, its support.

Chapter
VI

Brahman: The Source of All

“If a person knows Brahman as non-existent, he himself becomes
non-existent. If he knows Brahman as existent, then know him as
existent.”

This is the embodied soul of the former.

Thereupon the following questions of the pupil: Does anyone who knows not
attain that World after departing this life? Or does he who knows attain
that World after departing this life?

He desired: “May I be many, may I be born. He performed austerities.
Having performed austerities, He created all this-whatever there is.
Having created all this, He entered into it. Having entered into it, He
became both the manifested and the unmanifested, both the defined and
undefined, both the supported and unsupported, both the intelligent and
the non-intelligent, both the real and the unreal. The Satya became all
this: whatever there is. Therefore call It the True.

Chapter
VII

Brahman as Fearlessness

“In the beginning all this was non-existent. From it was born what
exists. That created Itself by Itself; therefore It is called the
self-made.”

That which is Self-made is flavour; for truly, on obtaining the flavour
one becomes blissful.

Who could direct the prana and the apana if this Bliss did not exist in
the akasa? Brahman verily exists because It alone bestows bliss.

When a man finds fearless support in That which is invisible, incorporeal,
indefinable and supportless, he has then obtained fearlessness.

If he makes the slightest differentiation in It, there is fear for him.
That becomes fear for the knower who does not reflect.

Chapter
VIII

The Supreme Bliss of Brahman

“From fear of It the wind blows; from fear of It the sun rises; from
fear of It Agni and Indra and Death, the fifth, run.”

Now this is an inquiry regarding the Bliss.

Suppose there is a young man-a noble young man-versed, the best of rulers,
firm in body and strong and possesses the whole world, full of wealth, is
his: that is one measure of human bliss.

This human bliss, multiplied on hundred times, is one measure of the bliss
of the human gandharvas, as also of a man versed in the Vedas and free
from desires.

This bliss of the human gandharvas, multiplied one hundred times, is one
measure of the bliss of the celestial gandharvas, as also of a man versed
in the Vedas and free from desires.

This bliss of the celestial gandharvas, multiplied one hundred times, is
one measure of the bliss of the Manes, who dwell in the long-enduring
world, as also of a man versed in the Vedas and free from desires.

This bliss of the Manes who dwell in the long-enduring world, multiplied
on hundred times, is one measure of the bliss of the gods born in the
Ajana heaven, as also of a man versed in the Vedas and free from desires.

The bliss of the gods born in the Ajana heaven,
multiplied one hundred times, is one measure of the bliss of the
sacrificial gods who have attained to divinity by means of sacrifices, as
also of a man versed in the Vedas and free from desires.

The bliss of the sacrificial gods, multiplied one hundred times, is one
measure of the bliss of the gods, as also of a man versed in the Vedas and
free from desires.

The bliss of the gods, multiplied one hundred times, is one measure of the
bliss of Indra, as also of a man versed in the Vedas and free from
desires.

The bliss of Indra, multiplied one hundred times, is one measure of the
bliss of Brihaspati, as also of a man versed in the Vedas and free from
desires.

The bliss of Brihaspati, multiplied one hundred times, is one measure of
the bliss of Prajapati, as also of a man versed in the Vedas and free from
desires.

The bliss of Prajapati, multiplied one hundred times, is one measure of
the bliss of Brahma, as also of a man versed in the Vedas and free from
desires.

He who is here in man and he who is in yonder sun-both are one.

He who knows this, after dying to this world, attains the self which
consists of food, attains the self which consist of the vital breath,
attains the self which consists of the mind, attains the self which
consists of intellect, attains the self which consists of bliss.

Chapter
IX

The Merging of Good and Evil in Brahman

“He who knows the Bliss of Brahman, whence words together with the
mind turn away, unable to reach It-he is not afraid of anything
whatsoever.”

He does not distress himself with the thought: Why did I not do what is
good? Why did I do what is evil? Whosoever knows this regards both these
as Atman; indeed he cherishes both these as Atman.

Such, indeed, is the Upanishad.

Om. May Brahman protect us both! May Brahman bestow upon us both the fruit
of Knowledge! May we both obtain the energy to acquire Knowledge! May what
we both study reveal the Truth! May we cherish no ill-feeling toward each
other!

Om. Peace! Peace! Peace!

Part
Three

Regarding Varuna and Bhrigu

Chapter I-Definition of Brahman

Om. May Brahman protect us both! May Brahman bestow upon us both the fruit
of Knowledge! May we both obtain the energy to acquire Knowledge! May what
we both study reveal the Truth! May we cherish no ill-feeling toward each
other!

Om. Peace! Peace! Peace!

Harih Om. Bhrigu, the son of Varuna, approached his father Varuna and
said: “Venerable Sir, teach me about Brahman.”

To him, the son, he said this: “Food, the vital breath, the eye, the
ear, the mind, speech.”

To him he said further: “That from which these beings are born, That
by which, when born, they live, That into which they enter, they
merge-seek to know That. That is Brahman.”

He performed austerities. Having performed austerities-

Chapter
II-The Body as Brahman

He realised that food is Brahman; for from food, verily, are these beings
born; by food, when born, do they live; into food do they enter, do they
merge.

Having realised this, he approached his father again and said:

“Venerable Sir, teach me Brahman.”

To him, the son, he said this: “Seek to know Brahman by means of
austerities. For austerities are Brahman.”

He practised austerities. Having practised austerities-

Chapter
III-The Prana as Brahman

He realised that the prana is Brahman; for from the prana, verily, are
these beings born; by the prana, when born, do they live; into the prana
do they enter, do they merge.

Having realised this, he approached his father again and said:

“Venerable Sir, teach me Brahman.”

To him, the son, he said this: “Seek to know Brahman by means of
austerities. For austerities are Brahman.”

He practised austerities. Having practised austerities-

Chapter
IV-The Mind as Brahman

He realised that the mind is Brahman; for from the mind, verily, are these
beings born; by the mind, when born, do they live; into the mind do they
enter, do they merge.

Having realised this, he approached his father again and said:

“Venerable Sir, teach me Brahman.”

To him, the son, he said this: “Seek to know Brahman by means of
austerities; for austerities are Brahman.”

He practised austerities. Having practised austerities-

Chapter
V-The Intellect as Brahman

He realised that the intellect is Brahman; for from the intellect, verily,
are these beings born; by the intellect, when born, do they live; into the
intellect do they enter, do they merge.

Having realised this, he approached his father again and said:

“Venerable Sir, teach me Brahman.”

To him, the son, he said this: “Seek to know Brahman by means of
austerities; for austerities are Brahman.”

He practised austerities. Having practised austerities-

Chapter
VI-Bliss as Brahman

He realised that Bliss is Brahman; for from Bliss, verily, are these
beings born; by bliss, when born, do they live; into bliss do they enter,
do they merge.

This is the wisdom taught by Varuna and learnt by
Bhrigu. It is established in the heart. He who knows this is established
in the Bliss of Brahman. He becomes a possessor of food and an eater of
food. He becomes great in offspring and cattle and in spiritual radiance
and great in fame.

Chapter
VII-The Importance of Food (1)

Let him never condemn food; that is the vow.

The prana is, verily, food; the body is the eater of food. The body rests
on the prana; the prana rest on the body. Thus food rests on food.

He who knows this resting of food on food is established; he becomes a
possessor of food and an eater of food. He becomes great in offspring and
cattle and in spiritual radiance and great in fame.

Chapter
VIII-The Importance of Food (2)

Let him never abandon food; that is the vow.

Water is, verily, food; fire is the eater. Fire rests on water and water
rests on fire. Thus food rests on food.

He who knows this resting of food on food is established; he becomes a
possessor of food and an eater of food. He becomes great in offspring and
cattle and in spiritual radiance and great in fame.

Chapter
IX-The Importance of Food (3)

Let him make food plentiful; that is the vow.

The earth is, verily, food; the akasa is the eater. The akasa rests on the
earth and the earth rests on the akasa. Thus food rests on food.

He who knows this resting of food on food is established; he becomes a
possessor of food and an eater of food. He becomes great in offspring and
cattle and in spiritual radiance and great in fame.

Chapter
X-Meditation on Brahman

Let him not deny lodgings to anyone: this is the vow. Therefore he should
procure much food by any means whatsoever. He should say: “The food
has been prepared for you.”

If this food is given first, food comes to the giver first. If this food
is given in the middle, food comes to the giver in the middle. If this
food is given last, food comes to the giver last.

He who knows this [obtains the fruit mentioned above].

One should meditate on Brahman as preservation in speech, as acquisition
and preservation in the prana and the apana, as action in the hands, as
movement in the feet, as evacuation in the anus. These are the meditations
on Brahman through actions.

Next through the gods: One should meditate on Brahman as satisfaction in
rain, as power in lightning;

As fame in cattle, as light in the stars, as procreation, immortality and
joy in the organ of generation and as everything in the akasa.

Let him contemplate Brahman as the support and he will be supported; let
him contemplate Brahman as greatness and he will become great; let him
contemplate Brahman as the mind and he will be endowed with mind.

Let him contemplate Brahman as adoration and all desires will fall down
before him in adoration. Let him contemplate Brahman as the Supreme Lord
and he will be endowed with supremacy. Let him contemplate Brahman as the
destructive agent and his enemies who hate him and also those who do not
hate him will perish.

This he who is in this man and that he who is in yonder sun, both are one.

He who knows this, after dying to this world, attains the self which
consists of food, attains the self which consists of the vital breath,
attains the self which consists of the mind, attains the self which
consists of the intellect, attains the self which consists of bliss. Then
he goes up and down these worlds, eating the food he desires, assuming the
forms he likes. He sits, singing the chant of the non-duality of Brahman:
“Ah! Ah! Ah!”

“I am food, I am food, I am food! I am the eater of food, I am the
eater of food, I am the eater of food! I am the uniter, I am the uniter, I
am the uniter!

“I am the first-born of the true, prior to the gods and the navel of
Immortality. He who gives me away, he alone preserves me. He who eats
food-I, as food, eat him.

“I overpower the whole world. I am radiant as the sun.”

Whosoever knows this, attains Liberation. Such, indeed, is the Upanishad.

Om. May Brahman protect us both! May Brahman bestow upon us both the fruit
of Knowledge! May we both obtain the energy to acquire Knowledge! May what
we both study reveal the Truth! May we cherish no ill-feeling toward each
other!

 

 

Om. Peace! Peace! Peace!
