I came across two texts:

  1. The first one
  2. The second one

Yet they both say that they're saraswati rahasya upanishad, and they're slightly different. Which one is the correct one or are they different sources? (If possible please give link to a translated version of the second one as well, or perhaps the translation of the untranslated part if anyone knows sanskrit )

P.S: Also, if anyone could tell me what lines like these mean to say: Of this mantra (chodayitri), Madhucchandas is the seer; Gayatri, the metre; Sarasvati, the divinity; BLUM, the seed, power and lynch-pin; consecration is with the mantra. , It'd be really helpful. I may not get it fully but a bit of hint if possible.

  • Can you provide reference to that mantra?

  • The PS part means that those are the various limbs of the mantra. A mantra can have 3 limbs or even 6 or 7 limbs. Just like a human being has limbs like head, hands etc a mantra is also having limbs. Mantra and the Devata are not separate. So, a Mantra is like a living being.
