Sri Venkatraghavan Ji,
Reg << I was referring to your statement that Bhagavatpada had
interpreted kshetragya as Iswara in PRB also.>>
My mistake attributable to carelessness/laxity in discussing vedantic
issues !!. It applies to other places also where I have committed the same
error. It should be read as Sakshi instead of Iswara.
Thanks for pointing it out.
