Lord Shiva advised Sage Vyargrapadha to worship Lord Ranganatha at SriRangam to enable Vyagrapada to attain Moksha (Vaikunta)

Vyaghrapada was joined by Sage Patanjali in his journey.

 

Because of  poor eyesight,the sages instead went southward, lost their way and reached KrupaSamudram (current Sirupuliyur).

They prayed to Vishnu to come to Srirangam to grant them moksha.

It is believed that Vishnu originally gave darshan (appeared) to the sages as Ranganatha, the form worshipped in the Srirangam temple.

Because of their old age, the sages could not see the big image of the Lord clearly and hence the Lord appeared in a smaller form known as Bala Sayanam

(smaller recline), a small kid in sleeping posture. Being the Lord in small form and the saint who worshiped was in the form of a tiger, this place is called Siru(small) Puli(Tiger)yur(Living place).

It is believed that the deity of this place gave protection to the snake Shesha from his enemy Garuda (eagle)

A special feature of this temple is that this is one of the only two Divya Desams where the Lord in Sayana Kolam (sleeping posture) is facing the Southern

direction, the other being Lord Ranganatha of Srirangam.

Garuda does not fly over this place-

Fight between Garuda and Adhiseshan

Once Garuda(the Vechile of the Lord) and Adiseshan(on whom rests the Lord) got into an argument as to who was more powerful and devoted to the Lord.

Seeing Garuda a little arrogant, Lord Vishnu went in favour of the Serpant God. Worried that Garuda might be angered at this, Adiseshan seeks Lord’s

protection, upon which Lord asks him to roll himself and lie under him. It is said that as a result of this anger, Garuda never flies over this place.

There is another story that Adiseshan won the argument and since snakes were sworn enemies of Garuda, Adiseshan hid himself under the waters of the temple tank.There is since been a temple for Adisesha.

A separate shrine for Sri Adhiseshan is present near to the pushkarani – known as Ananthalwar Temple.

It is said that one will be relieved of Naaga Dosham if one visits this place. Unmarried people and childless couple can also visit this temple for solution

How to reach Thiruchirupuliyur.

It is located 2 km away from Kollumangudi. Kollumangudi is 40 km away from Kumbakonam and 10 km from Karaikal.

It is also the junction of the Mayavaram – Tiruvarur high road.

I have been posting articles on two issues.

1.Tamil and Sanatna Dharama  are inseparable and Vedic culture emanated from the South

2.Sanatana Dharma was spread throughout the world.

I have posted quite a few articles on these two issues.

Now it is found that  in Egypt and Oman, Tamil Brahmi scripts have been discovered , dating 1 BC.

 

As I have pointed out in my earlier posts, History has been distorted to the extent that people think of Africa, Middle east as having peopled with Nomadic tribes with no religion worth the name.

Islam is being projected as the Religion in Middle easy , while in Africa, their early religion has been erased from memory by Christianity.

 

The words Nanthai ,Keeran are found. ணந்தை- கீரன்

Refers to Nakkeran of the First Tamil Sangam?

In that case it has to be at least 5000 years old.

” A broken storage jar with inscriptions in Tamil Brahmi script has been excavated at Quseir-al-Qadim, an ancient port with a Roman settlement on the Red Sea coast of Egypt. This Tamil Brahmi script has been dated to first century B.C. One expert described this as an “exciting discovery.”

The same inscription is incised twice on the opposite sides of the jar. The inscription reads paanai oRi, that is, pot (suspended) in a rope net.

An archaeological team belonging to the University of Southampton in the U.K., comprising Prof. D. Peacock and Dr. L. Blue, who recently re-opened excavations at Quseir-al-Qadim in Egypt, discovered a fragmentary pottery vessel with inscriptions.

Dr. Roberta Tomber, a pottery specialist at the British Museum, London, identified the fragmentary vessel as a storage jar made in India.

Iravatham Mahadevan, a specialist in Tamil epigraphy, has confirmed that the inscription on the jar is in Tamil written in the Tamil Brahmi script of about first century B.C.

In deciphering the inscription, he has had the benefit of expert advice from Prof. Y. Subbarayalu of the French Institute of Pondicherry, Prof. K. Rajan of Central University, Puducherry and Prof. V. Selvakumar, Tamil University, Thanjavur.

According to Mr. Mahadevan, the inscription is quite legible and reads: paanai oRi, that is, ‘pot (suspended in) a rope net.’ The Tamil word uRi, which means rope network to suspend pots has the cognate oRi in Parji, a central Dravidian language, Mr. Mahadevan said. Still nearer, Kannada has oTTi, probably from an earlier oRRi with the same meaning.

The word occurring in the pottery inscription found at Quseir-al-Qadim can also be read as o(R)Ri as Tamil Brahmi inscriptions generally avoid doubling of consonants.

Earlier excavations at this site about 30 years ago yielded two pottery inscriptions in Tamil Brahmi belonging to the first century A.D.

Another Tamil Brahmi pottery inscription of the same period was found in 1995 at Berenike, also a Roman settlement, on the Red Sea coast of Egypt, Mr. Mahadevan said.

These discoveries provided material evidence to corroborate the literary accounts by classical Western authors and the Tamil Sangam poets about the flourishing trade between the Tamil country and Rome (via the Red Sea ports) in the early centuries A.D.

Balambika Dasakam Text Sanskrit English Balambika is the child form of Lalitha Devi. Detailed posts follow on this. Balambika Dasakam is a rare stotra.

Lalitha Shobanam is used to be sung by ladies of  Brahim households every day, especially from Palakkad, after they take bath .

It is believed that there Asthu devatas, two in number who roam the skies and keep saying ‘Let this Happen’(Asthu).

 

 

The last line of each stanza of Lalitha  is repeated twice, so that the Asthu Devatas may Bless by saying “let It happen’

Everything will turn out to be well as the words use in the Lalitha Shobanam is auspicios and as such good things of Life shall be showered to the place where it is recited.

It is customary in Brahmin households not to use words with negative meaning or sounds, as these also would attract “Asthu’

Lalitha Shobanam contains the story of Lalithambal.

 

Devas troubled by Tharuka and Soora prayed Lord Shiva to save them.

 

Sathi the wife of Shiva had died.
Lord Shiva was doing penance.
Sathi was born as the daughter of the Himalaya Mountain.
Devas requested Manmatha to disturb Shiva to enable Him to marry Uma
Manmatha shot an arrow made of Sugarcane.
Shiva woke up, opened his third eye and burnt Manmatha in to ashes.
Later Viswakarma, the deva architect made a doll out of the ashes of Manmatha.
Lord Shiva not only gave him life but made him formless.
Manmatha is with out body from then onwards.
.Lord Brahma gave him the name of Banda.
Though initially this Bandasura was pious, later he waged a war against devas.
The devas found out only the Goddess who would marry Shiva can kill her.
On the advice of Brahma they prayed.
 Lalitha Devi took incarnation.
She married Kameswara (the handsome gentleman form of Lord Shiva) and later she killed Bandasura and his huge army.
After that listening to the plea of Rathi Devi (wife of Manmatha) she brought back the god of love to life.
The Shobanam also gives detailed description of Sri Pura where the Goddess lived.
This story is also told in Lalitha Sahasra Nama.
Bandaputhra Vadothyukta Sakthi Sena sSmanvitha’ Lalitha Sahasranama.

Devi Lalithambal Shobanam Meaning Lalitha Shobanam is used to be sung by ladies of  Brahim households every day, especially from Palakkad, after they take bath .

The Moon is considered as a Devata in Hinduism.

It is reckoned as a Planet in Indian Astrology.

Moon rules the mind and is responsible for the soundness of mind.

If the Moon sign is not favorable, one is assailed by doubts,indecision, confusion ans depression.

Moon waxes and wanes.

From the New Moon day(Amavasya), it waxes.

This period of waxing till the Full Moon (Poornima) is called the Shukla Paksha, Shulka means white.

Waning from the Full Moon to New Moon is Krishna Paksha, Krisha mans black

There are 1 5 Days in between Poornima and Amavasya.

Each day, the Moon’s effulgence(Kala) is ruled by a Devi

They are sixteen .

They Kalas are,

1.Amrita,
2.Manada,
3.Poosha,
4.Tusthi,
5.Pusthi,
6.Rati,
7.Dhruti,
8.Sasichini,
9.Chandrika,
10.Kanta,
11.Jyostna,
12.Shree,
13.Preeti,
14.Angada,
15.Poorna and
16.Poornamruta.

The sixteenth Kala is invisible.

Each of these Kalas is ruled by a Devi.

These ae Shodasa(16) Nithyas,

1.Maha Tripura Sundari,
2.Kameswari,
3.Bhagamalini,
4.Nityaklinna,
5.Bherunda,
6.Vanhivasini,
7.Maha Vajreswari,
8.Shivadooti (Roudri),
9.Twarita,
10.Kulasundari,
11.Nitya,
12.Neelapataka,
13.Vijaya,
14.Sarvamangala,
15.Jwalamalini and
16.Chidroopa (Chitra).

 

The first one, Maha Tripura Sundari is the Devi Para Shakti herself, and hence the kala ruled by her is not visible to the normal mortals.

In the Sri Chakra these 15 nityas are present in the innermost circle, and the Devi is in the central Bindu.

These 15 Nityas rule the famous 15 letters Devi mantra known as Panchadasakshari Mantra.

Ka E Aie La Hreem Ha Sa Ka Ha La Hreem Sa Ka La Hreem
These 15 Nityas in the form of the 15 Tithis (Phases) have two aspects each – Prakashamsa, which rules the day portion of the Tithi, and Vimarshamsa,

which rules the night part of the Tithi. At night they collect the divine nectar and during the day they release it.
On Poornima or full moon day all the 15 Nityas are in the moon and the moon is shining brightly. On the 1st Thithi after the Poornima, i.e., Pratipada,

one Nitya leaves the moon and goes to the sun and the moon is reduced slightly in size.

This goes on till New Moon.

After Amavasya they return one by one on each Tithi and the moon starts shining again till its full on the Poornima when the last Nitya returns to it.

This is called Shukla Paksha. Kameswari to Chitra are the Nityas ruling the Krishna Paksha Tithis from Pratipada to Amavasya.

In Shukla Paksha the order of the Nityas is reversed, i.e., Chitra to Kameswari.

The Nitya of the Asthami or 8th Tithi, Twarita, is common and constant to both the Pakshas. Hence she adorns the crown of Devi.

The inner triangle of Sri Chakra is known as the Sarva Siddhiprada Chakra and the Nityas are next only to Tripura Sundari in importance.

Kameswari is Goddess Parvati, Vajreswari is Maha Lakshmi and Bhagamalini is Goddess Saraswati.

One Year has 360 days and 360 nights(720)

There are 720 aspects of Devi in a Year.

Each Devi rules 100 Nadis in our body.

Our Body has 72, 000 Nadis.

The Nityas or Eternities of Lalita represent the fifteen lunar days or tithis of the waxing Moon.

Each has her own yantra, mantra, tantra and prayogas or ritual applications.

The full circle of the Nityas also represents the 21,600 breaths a human being takes in a full day and night.

As such, the Nityas are the Kalachakra, or Wheel of Time.

The 15 Nityas are modifications of Lalita with her three gunas and her five elements of aether, air, fire, water and earth.

As the moon remains itself, though appearing differently according to phase, so too does Lalita.

Lalita or Tripurasundari is the 16th day or full moon, with her 15 digits.

Each of the Nityas has a certain number of arms, the totality of arms (= rays) of the whole circle being 108.

Because any unit of time is taken as a microcosm or parallel of any other valid unit, each of the fifteen Nityas thus has 1,440 breaths.

This identity between space, time, Tripurasundari and the individual is elaborated at great length in the Tantraraja Tantra.

The Nityas are the vowels of the Sanskrit alphabet and are identical with both time and space.

For example, if the number of tattvas or consonants (36) are multiplied by the 16 Nityas the number of letters is 576

The multiples of this number provide the number of years in the different Yugas. So the circle of the matrikas and the Nityas is identical with the sidereal zodiac as well as mantra.

 

This is the primary reason why Poornima Pooja done for Devi.

Kameshvari is the Rudra Shakti – Parvati. She is white in colour, besmeared with camphor, adorned with pearls and crystal, and various other gems, holding book, rosary, bestowing boons and dispelling fear. 

Vajreshi is the Vishnu Shakti – Lakshmi. She is bright as red kumkuma, adorned with flowers and gems, like the dawn sun. Her eyelids are smeared with sapphire dust, she holds sugarcane how, flowery arrows, bestows boons, dispels fear. 

Bhagamalini is the Brahma Shakti – Saraswati. She is effulgent as molten gold, adorned with priceless gems, holds noose, goad, and shows the gestures of knowledge and bestowing boons. 

The beeja is Hsraim Hsrklim Hsrsauh. The gem of the mandala is Gomaya. The dhatu is Fat. The time is season (two months). The Mudra is the Bija Mudra. 

The 9th Avarana: This Avarana is the Bindu – the Cosmic Union of Shiva & Shakti as Kameswari & Kameswara. It is called Sarvanandamaya Chakra. The Yogini is the Queen of Queens, Rajarajeshvari, Her Transcendent Majesty Lalita Maheshvari Mahatripurasundari. 

The beeja is ka e i la hrim. The gem is ruby. The dhatu is hair. The time is year. The mudra of this Avarana is Yoni Mudra.

Shreechakra Navavarana Pooja as per the Khadgamala vidhi

The basic Rules: Devi worship must be done only after taking bath and wearing clean clothes. As per the rituals to be observed – various pooja books and websites prescribe long preparations and rituals for poojas. It is not possible for every one to perform a pooja like an ordained Vedic priest. Hence our scriptures allow one to do a pooja “Yatha shakti” or as per ones capability and convenience. Doing it with faith is what really matters. The minimum is: light a lamp and an incense stick and offer some prasad – if you don’t have anything at home then simple milk or sugar will do.
People worship the Shreechakra made of various materials and in shades. The simplest and the best one is a clear diagrammatic picture. In the olden days people used to draw the Chakra on various materials. Now you do not have to go through all the trouble. You can use a simple printed one, which is equally effective. We have enclosed one for your benefit at the top. Take a print out of it to worship. Preferably laminate it so that it is not soiled or damaged. 

While doing the pooja of the various deities in the Nine Avaranas, you can worship the Chakra with Akshintas (Turmeric rice) or flowers or with Panchamrut. A still better way is to worship the particular Devi in the places indicated in the pictures given in the previous pages.

The Devi is worshipped in many forms and names – Lalita, Katyayani, Kameswari, Kamakshi, Durga, Chandi, Kali, and Amba etc. The closest matching form of the Shodashakshari Devi as described in the scriptures is that off Goddess Kamakshi of Kanchi. You will find it here>Click to see picture

The Anganyasas and Karanyasa beejas are the purification ritual before the pooja. The basic Anganyasa & Karanyasa are given for the benefit of those who are conversant with this ritual. If you do not know you can omit it. 

If you are conversant with the other pooja rituals like Aachamanam, Bhuta Suddhi, Dehasuddhi, Shankha pooja, Kalasha pooja etc., you can perform them before the actual pooja. If you do not know simply offer a prayer to Lord Ganesha and do the pooja. At the end of the pooja offer the following prayer. 

“Avahanam najanami, najanami visarjanam, 

poojamchaiva najanamani kshamaswa Maheswari. 

Yatkrutam yatkarishyami tathsarvam twamarpanam, 

poojam poorna phalam kuru”. 

Roughly translated it means – “I am not conversant with the Aavahana, visarjana etc.. pooja rituals and hence forgive me. Whatever I have done and I am doing, I am offering to you. Give me full results”. 

This pooja, along with the four other poojas that must be performed before that, will take about 45 minutes time but it is more effective than any other pooja both materially and spiritually.  

When you sit facing the east and with the tip of the top triangle pointing at you, at the bottom right hand side corner of the Shreechakra resides Lord Ganesha. The bottom left hand side corner resides Lord Surya. The top left side corner resides Lord Vishnu and the top right corner of the Shreechakra resides Lord Shiva. They must be worshipped before starting the Pooja of the Nava-Avaranas.

After that the eight primordial directions are guarded by the eight Lokapalas. Indra guards the East, Agni guards the South East, Yama guards the South, Nirriti guards the South West, Varuna guards the West, Vayu guards the North East, Soma guards the North and Ishana guards the North East.

Image provided in the Post.

** I am posting this with what little I know of the subject.Corrections,Improvements are welcome.

May people be benefited by these Maha Mantras,

Location of Devis in Sri Chakra.

Five downward pointing triangles representing Devi intersect with four upward pointing triangles representing Siva, forming 43 triangles including the central triangle.

From the five Shakti triangles comes creation and from the four Shiva triangles comes the dissolution. The union of five Shaktis and four Fires causes the chakra of creation to evolve.

At the centre of the bindu of the Shri Yantra is Kamakala, which has three bindus. One is red, one is white and one is mixed. The red bindu is Kurukulla the Female form, the white bindu is Varahi the Male form, and the mixed bindu is the union of Shiva & Shakti – the individual as the potential Shri Cakra. Varahi, the father-form, gives four dhatus to the child and Kurukulla, the mother-form, gives five dhatus to the child. Theses represent the nine dhatus of the human body.

Varahi’s four fires are the 12 (4 x 3) sun Kalas, the 12 Zodiac constellations. Kurukulla’s five triangles are the 15 (5 x 3) Kalas of the moon, 15 lunar Tithis.

These nine triangles also represent the nine stages of growth of the human child in the womb.Surrounding the 43 triangles formed by the intersection of the nine triangles is the 16 petals circle. Surrounding the 16 petal circle is an 8 petal circle. After that the 3 lines and at the outermost part of the Sriyantra there are 3 lines called the Bhupura.

The Form of the Goddess is Kanchi Kamakshi.

*The Poojas to be performed for the other Devatas, Ganesha, Surya, Shiva,  Vishnu and Devi are provided ina separate post.

(Citation . http://www.astrojyoti.com/scpooja3.htm

Yatkrutam yatkarishyami tathsarvam twamarpanam,
poojam poorna phalam kuru”.

Navavarana Pooja Procedure Mantras Part 1 I am providing the Navavarana Pooja details with Mantras below. Begin the Pooja with Ganesha Partishta, Kalasa Pooja and follow the  procedures here with Sankalpa.

The scriptures of the Hindus, Vedas speak of Embryology.

There are references in the Puranas to Embryology.

1.Dadisi’s Stemcell was taken from his backbone, when Dadisi gave his backbone to Indra, Chief of Devatas to enable him to create a Powerful weapon, Vajrayadudha.

2.Sage Agasthya was born in Pot, with Semen being kept in it.

3.Lord Krishna taught Abhimanyu the Chakravyuha., a Battle formation.

There are more instances, I shall be posting on this in detail.

I have published an article on Human Conception Embryology in The Vedas where I have dealt with references to Bhagavatham and Charaka Samhita.

We have a Upanishad fully devoted to Embryology.

It is Garbhopanishad by Paippalada.

Here is the Translation.

 

Om ! May He protect us both together; may He nourish us both together; May we work conjointly with great energy, May our study be vigorous and effective; May we not mutually dispute (or may we not hate any). Om ! Let there be Peace in me ! Let there be Peace in my environment ! Let there be Peace in the forces that act on me !
The body is fivefold in nature (the five elements), existing in the five, depending on the six (tastes of food), connected with the six qualities (kama etc.,), seven Dhatus, three impurities, three Yonis (of excretion) and four kinds of food.
Why say ‘Fivefold in nature ?’ The five elements Earth, Water, Fire, Wind and Ether. In this body, whatever is hard is of Earth, liquid is water, warm is fire, whatever moves about is air and space-enclosed is ether. The function of the Earth is to support, water is to consolidate (digestion etc.,). Fire is to see, wind is for moving, Ether is to give space (for vital functions).
The eyes are used in seeing form, ears for sound, tongue for taste, the skin and nose for touch and smell respectively; genital for pleasure, Apana is for evacuation (of bowels). The person cognises through the intellect, wills with the mind and speaks with the tongue.
The six-fold support is the six tastes (of food): sweet, acid, salty, pungent, bitter and astringent.
1-7. Sadja, Risabha, Gandhara, Panchama, Madhyama, Dhaivata, Nisadha – these are the seven agreeable and disagreeable sounds. White, Red, Black smoke-coloured, Yellow, Tawny and Pale-White – these are the colours of the seven Dhatus (primary Humours). Why ? For Devadatta (any person) there springs up in his mind desire for enjoyment of objects. From relish of food blood is born, from it is flesh, thence fat, bones, marrow, semen; by the combination of semen and blood the foetus is born.
Vital warmth springs up in the womb and the belly. In the seat of the warmth bile, Prana flows – at the proper season ordained by the creator.
8. The embryo lying (in the womb) for (a day) and night is a confused mass; after seven days it becomes a bubble; after a fortnight, a mass and in a month, it hardens. In two months develops the region of the head; in three months, the feet; in the fourth, belly and hip; in the fifth, the backbone; in the sixth, nose, eyes and ears; in the seventh the embryo quickens with life and in the eighth month, it becomes complete.
9. By the dominance of the father’s semen, the child becomes male; the mother’s – female. When equal, a eunuch. If, at the time of impregnation, the parents are agitated, the child will be blind, crippled, hunch-backed or stunted in growth. If the couple have vital-air-trouble, the semen enters in two parts resulting in twins.
10. In the eighth month, in conjunction with the five vital airs the Jiva gets the capacity to know its past affairs (of past births), conceives of the imperishable Atman as Om, through perfect knowledge and meditation. Having known Om he sees in the body the eight Prakritis derived from it the five elements, mind, intellect and ego and the sixteen changes [see Prasnopanishad].
11. The body becomes complete in the ninth month and remembers the past birth. Actions done and not done flash to him and he recognises the good and bad nature of Karma.
12-17. ‘I have seen thousands of wombs, eaten several kinds of food and sucked many breasts; born and dead often, I am immersed in grief but see no remedy. If I can get out of this, I will resort to Sankhya-Yoga which destroys misery and yields liberation; or I resort to Maheshvara who destroys misery. Or I resort to Narayana, who destroys misery. If I did good and bad deeds for the sake of my dependants, I shall myself be burnt for the deeds – the others who enjoyed the fruits go away (unaffected).
18. The person being squeezed as it were by a machine is touched by all-pervading air and forgets previous births and deeds.
19. Why is the body so called ? It has three fires: the Kosthagni ripens all that is eaten; the Darsanagni helps one see colour etc., the Jnanagni is the mind which helps perform good and bad deeds.
20. The Daksinagni is in the heart; Garhapatya in the belly and Ahavaniya in the mouth; the intellect is the performer’s consort, contentment is Diksha, sense organs are the utensils, head is the jar, hair is the sacred grass, the mouth the interior of the altar etc.

Here ends the Garbhopanishad belonging to the Krishna-Yajur-Veda.

Date of Garbhopanishad.

Moore hints at amazement with the Garbha Upanishad in almost the same breath. Regarding this text, he writes:
A brief Sanskrit treatise on ancient Indian embryology is thought to have been written in 1416 B.C.

This scripture of the Hindus, called Garbha Upanishad, describes ancient ideas concerning the embryo.

It states:
From the conjugation of blood and semen the embryo comes into existence.

During the period favorable to conception, after the sexual intercourse, (it) becomes a Kalada (one-day-old embryo).

After remaining seven nights it becomes a vesicle.

After a fortnight it becomes a sperical mass. After a month it becomes a firm mass [12]

Pre-2000 BCE
The first question concerns the date of the Garbha Upanishad. Since it is ascribed to Pippalāda, we need to determine this sage’s place in the Vedic tradition, although it is believed that the text may not be as old as the sage. Pippalāda is also the instructing sage of the Praśna Upani¬ad and the author of the Atharvaveda śākhā named after him (Paippalāda śākhā). As a principal arranger of the Atharvaveda, he should be assigned to at least the middle of the second millennium BCE, if the ›gveda is to be taken to be no later than 2000 BCE, as is suggested by hydrological evidence related to the drying up of the Sarasvatī river around this time, and the fact that the ›gveda celebrates this river as the great river of its time, flowing from the mountains to the sea.
According to the Purāªas, Pippalāda was the disciple of the ›¬i Vedasparśa, and he instructed Yudhi¬−hira in the significance of the A¡gāravrata, which is based on a dialogue between ˜ukra and Virocana.
The physiological knowledge in the Garbha Upani¬ad is consistent with that found in the oldest Upani¬ads. Like the other texts, it speaks of recursion, but it doesn’t list as many channels (veins and nerves) as the other texts do. This indicates that this Upani¬ad may be older than what has been assumed.
Pippalāda answers six questions in the Praśna Upani¬ad, a number that is reminiscent of the six darśanas. The six questions touch upon six different aspects of reality: forms (nyāya), basis of life (mīmā÷sā), origins (sā÷khya), devas within (yoga), next world (vedānta), and modifications (vaiśe¬ika). This is not an argument for the lateness of the Praśna Upani¬ad, but rather for the remote antiquity of six bases to reality, which mirroring the six directions..
