1.one should have the notion of isaavasyam idam saravam…,in order to protect one’s Self. The result is
that one is protected from samsara

- When one lacks interest in walking the path of knowledge and also lacks the relevant qualifications required to walk this path(nivritti maarga), the Upanishad prescribes duty to be performed(pravritti maarga).By the dedicated performance of one’s duty, one starts purifying the mind(performance of duty has the power to purify the mind keeping raga Dvesha at bay).The mind then starts inquiring (vichaara) . Through Vichaara one starts moving towards Karmayoga,having developed ishwaraarpana budhi and Prasada budhi.The mind then starts developing the qualifications necessary to walk the path of knowledge( nivritti maarga).

mind to perform Karma yoga, which
then produces nishkaama karma
