There is a very pithy verse in naishkarmyasiddhi on this -
niyamaH parisaMkhyA vA vidhy artho 'pi bhaved yataH |
anAtmA-adarSananena eva parAtmAnam upAsmahe ||
Whether one takes the meaning of the upanishad (e.g. vijnAya prajnAM kurvIta
etc.) as a niyama vidhi (limiting injunction) or a parisaMkhyA vidhi
(excluding injunction), only through not seeing (adarSana) the not-Self
(anAtma) do we worship (upAsmahe) the supreme Self (parAtmAnam).
