Namaste Vidyasankar-ji,

But, as per our previous discussion on "gauDapAda kArikA-s" topic, it was
mentioned that, Advaita holds, whatever you & I perceive here (in
vyavaharika domain) is ultimately not real in paramArthika level. This
means, what we perceive here about this world and it's business
(knowledge-A) is subsequently sublated when one moves from v-level to
p-level. Don't you agree, this is what Jay is referring to "no guarantee"
knowledge-A ?
