MUNDAKOPANISHAD

This appears in the Kathopanishad also.

Much learning or scholarly discussion or force of intellect cannot enable one to realize the Spirit within.

The Spirit that yearns for self-realization realizes itself.

III-(2)-3

The yearning for realization automatically destroys other desires and attachments, and enables one to reach self-realization.

The feeble-minded, who do not make earnest effort through well-directed meditation and control of mind and senses, cannot hope to realize the Self within. The will to realize and strenuous effort are necessary. Balam in the following sloka stands for effort and strength exercised in the way of self control and steady application.
