Aha I had a feeling this must have come from some other pen than that of
Swami Sacchidanandendra. I would be surprised if he used an infelicitous
word like mere which suggests a negative comparison.
It's like if someone said "A private island cannot be bought by a mere
millionaire." This does not imply a beggar can buy it right? If it is
hard for a millionaire how much more so for a beggar? No the intent is to
compare _up_ to, say, a billionaire, not down.
When one has assimilated all the concepts of the shastras, one must give
them up but not a moment before.
