May be Shankara used this analogy to show that the same analogy, as used
by the Buddhists before him, does not come to the same conclusion.
praNAms Sri Sunil prabhuji
For those who read the chAndOgya bhAshya in detail would know the fact
that first Sri shankara gives the rope-snake example and when the
pUrvapaxi specifically asked the question : is the world is just like
bhrAnti like 'snake' on the rope?? shankara starts his clarification
with a big NO !! and continue to say that jagat in its kAraNa rUpa nothing
but brahman only and there is nothing that can be called 'asatya'. shruti
also saying this same thing at various places, like : idam sarvaM
yadayamAtmA, brahmaivedam amrutam purasthAt, sarvaM khalvidaM brahma etc.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
