What comes from the long term practice of yoga -2 ?
Finding the atma from the Mundaka Upanishad
नायमात्मा बलहीनेन लभ्य: (3.2.4)
Mundaka means shaven head. Therefore it is a Upanishad that shaves or Liberates us from the errors we commit that lead to an endless cycle of births and deaths. It is said that when one does the right practice (i.e. the limbs of yoga, especially meditation), for a long time without hankering for results then the Atma will reveal itself to the practitioner.
This atma cannot be attained by the study of the vedas nor can it be attained by the intellect nor much by listening to the sacred scriptures. This atman is attainable by they to whom it chooses to reveal its form.
This atma is never attained by the weak nor by the inattentive, nor even by one performing improper austerities. The wise who strive by these means (of yoga) his atma enters the world of the brahman.
