MUNDAKOPANISHAD

Ceremonials and sacrifices lead men round and round, and not to the ultimate goal to which an understanding of the Self-alone can lead.

The popular belief as regards the efficacy of sacrifices is, though not rudely negatived, politely put aside in the Upanishads as not leading to what is true and imperishable happiness.

The passage that occurs in Katha Upanishad about fools fancying themselves learned appears here with just one verbal change. Light is here thrown on what is meant by the important term avidya which occurs in the Katha and Isavasya Upanishads and also in the Gita (ch. 2, 42, 43).
