It is in this light that one should understand the Advaitic view of the
entire Veda(anta) being valid only in the vyavaharic state which is
characterized by the tripuTee : pramAtR, pramANa and prameya.
> And from pAramArthik view point this shAstra vyavahAra & other
vyavahAra-s as well do not exist apart from the Self. That is what has
been said in the above extract :
(a) Even prior to and after the realization of the Universal Self, it is
held that the shAstra or its validity has no existence other than that of
(b) That the shAstra is regarded as being different from Self is only
because of ignorance.
> The point to be noted here is shankara does say apart from Self there
exists nothing!! sadAtmanA satyatvAbhyupagamAt sarvavyavahArANAM,
sarvavikArANAM cha satyatvaM says somewhere shankara.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
