By saying so Shankara confirms that not only
does the Jnani have a mind, he 'desires', wishes, and that the Jnani has
ahankAra too: the word मह्यं ' for me' shows this.
Again, I am afraid, out of context proof. It can be noted that this
maNtra & bhAshya are not meant to prove jnAni's ahaMkAra & mamakAra. It
is an eulogy of brahmavidya and an appreciation of importance of brahma
vidyA/jnAni. The 'saNdarbha' (context) here is glorification of
brahmavidyA!! Noway, it can be taken as proof to prove jnAni's 'ahaMkAra'
and his 'kAma'. The jnAni is 'AptakAma' & 'AtmanishTa' how can he desire
for mundane wordly things by keeping his individuality intact by
entertaining the 'bhOktrutva' bhAva in him !!?? As Sri vidyA prabhuji
just said, literal reading of these sentences would definitely lead to
'arthahAni' and 'siddhAnta hAni' as well.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
