I had some discussion earlier about those verses. srI Subramanium ji always
gives (good) logical answers :) . What I pointed out was that
The famous verse everyone speaks is - Brahma satyA jagat mithyA -
BrahmajnAnAvalI mAlA - 20
In the above verses BG 16.7-8, the word used is 'asatya' and not 'mithyA'
and people miss (deliberately ?? )
3 levels of truth
talking from pArmArthika satya is not the same as vyavahArika satya
Those verses point to cArvAka-s
I have seen one thing. Few people actually read bhASya-s written by
AcArya-s other sampradAya. They would conclude from what their Guru teaches
(i.e. discourses) and info and advaita given by AcArya-s in convoluted way
in their commentaries on Gita and other shastra-s.

nothing but unhappiness" - Bhagawan Ramana Maharshi
He who has faith has all
He who lacks faith, lacks all
It is the faith int he name of lord that works wonders
