Dear Dr. Praveen Kumarji,
Here is my opinion. However, scholars may correct me if I am wrong.
The 10th & 11th sloka of 10th chapter of Bhagavat Gita has a tone of Advaita.
tEShAM satatayuktAnAM bhajatAM prItipUrvakaM
dadAmi buddhiyOgaM taM yEna mAM upayAnti tE ……10
// To them who are ever devoted and worship Me with love, I grant that possession of wisdom by which they reach Me.//
tEShAM evAnukaMpArthaM ahaM ajnAnajaM tamaH
nAshayAmyAtmabhAvasthO jnAnadIpEna bhAsvatA …..11
//Out of compassion for them alone, I, residing in their hearts, destroy the darkness born of ignorance with the luminous lamp of Knowledge.//
As kriShNa / vAsudeva is sarva-vyApaka tattva (vAsudEvaH sarvaM iti), so, mAM upayAnti tE & “nAshayAmi Atma bhAvasthA jnAnadIpEna bhAsvatA” are indicative of shattering the wall of duality.
