CONTRIBUTION OF FATAH SINGH
Indu happens to be one of the 101 synonyms for
waters in vedic glossary. In vedic mantras, this has been stated to impart
activeness and wisdom. In Saamkhya philosophy, this trait has been attributed
only to complex of man and nature, or purusha and prakriti. But Indu also
happens to have both qualities. Word Indu can be derived from a combination of
roots Eem and Dru. Soma is also called indu.
The plural form of indu is indavah. This represents the consciousness at
mental level. Indu represents the consciousness at super – mental level. When
Indra is called in vedic mantras to drink indavah, then this Indra represents
that soul which is lying scattered at mental and gross levels etc. In order to
drink soma, this soul has to converge itself. When Indra residing at highest
level has to drink, then these indavah have to be purified through the sieve of
super – mental level.
Trita has been stated to kill Trishiraa with a weapon. The weapon used is
Indavah and Trishiraa is having three heads. Symbolically, Trishiraa is the
demonical part prevailing in the trio of emotion, knowledge and action.
