> Nor do I object to the negation of Ishwaratwam of Hiranyagarbha. I only
> object to the negation of the Selfhood of Parameshwara and His Ishwaratwam
> that is dependent on His Selfhood. In BG 9.5, Sankara clearly says that
> there is no difference the Lord and His Self. In 9.12, Sankara talks about
> "the great Lord of all beings who is their Self". In 9.13, Sankara cautions
> of becoming vain all hopes, actions and knowledge of those who "disregard
> the Lord, who is there own Self". In 14.27, Sankara says the "Innermost
> Self is the Supreme Self".
