दर्शनाच्च ॥ ६६ ॥
darśanācca || 66 ||
darśanāt—Because the Sruti says so; ca—and.
66. And because the Sruti says so.
“The Brahman (superintending priest) who knows this protects the sacrifice, the sacrificer, and all the other priests” (Chh. 4. 17. 10). This shows that the scriptures do not intend that all the meditations should go together. If it were so, then all the priests would know all of them and there is no sense in the Sruti distinguishing the qualified superintending priest from the rest.
The meditations, therefore, may or may not be combined according to one’s taste.
