AMRUTHA BINDU UPANISHAD:







This is a very small Upanishad  explaining  about  mind  in 22 lines.










1. This Upanishad  tells us that there are two parts for our mind.






2. Part   one  is the location where  all the cravings and negatives  are stored  which is the asuddha /impure part.  Part two  where all the  positives are stored which is the pure part of mind.






3.  Greatness of an individual is due to the active positive /pure part of the mind  and  people becomes negative in their nature  due to the active negative part
of the mind, says the Upanishad.






4. The influence of meditation in mind is  greatly  explained in few lines here. 










5. The method of controlling the impure part of the mind  through saadhana  is further  explained 










6. The meditation is  said to be possible only by controlling the negative part of the mind and then  focusing  omkaram through  the positive part of the mind.










7.  By taking the pure mind to  brahmajnaana praapti level  and  elevating   himself  spiritually, the  yogi can attain  a level free from  rebirth. Through great  sacrifice 
also  one can attain the level to become free from the rebirth










8. Vedas  are the main source of knowledge  and one should learn Vedas and attain higher and higher levels n spirituality.






9 Just like the  butter is present  in milk, the knowledge is present  in Vedas  and it should be  taken by churning the Vedas by yoga saadhana. Just like the clay is present in   all pots, the Brahma thathwam is present in all living and non living beings says  this Upanishad.






10. Every one should understand that knowledge is present in  every living beings and everywhere   and  one should realize this to become  brahmajnaani, through brahma saakshaathkaara 
and  enjoy the brahmaananda.

VIDUROPADESA.







201. For human beings the character is the most important  factor based on which  he gets respect from the society.






202.  When the character is lost    everything is lost including  relatives, wealth….






203.  The royal and wealthy family member may include  high quantity of  meat
in their food, the middle class opts for milk products where as the
poor people may have to satisfy with simple foods.






204. But the poor
always enjoys the food because of  hunger factor which  will always be with them






205.  But this hunger and related  taste  are almost  absent for the rich
due to many other worries .






206.  Generally the rich cannot take  good food for a long time, the restrictions fall upon their  eating soon due to health factors. 










207.  For the poor  even  a piece of wood can get digested  in their stomach.






208.  The poor people are always afraid of  the availability of their daily food. The middle class is always afraid of  the death  and rich are afraid of the bad name and fame in the society.






209.  The most important and crucial danger is due  to  liquor/ alcohol.






210.  By this the  wealth and  corresponding ego will  destroy an individual /rich men. He realizes
 this only after  the great fall  due to ego .
