[Advaita-l] 'world' is not the mental creation of tiny soul !!

the creations and withdrawals of the universe have been merely imagined.
you have seen reality as it is, how can the notions of creation etc be
seen as possible? And
so, Suresvara keeps to the true vedantic tradition of stating that
supposed to produce the world is purely illusory.”
praNAms Sri Subhanu prabhuji
Thanks for the clarification. Yes, according to advaita's paramArtha
stand there is neither creaton nor dissolution, nor any bandha nor any
mOksha. kArika clarifies this and hence no disagreements here whatsoever.
But when it comes bedha vyavahAra, where jeeva, jagat & Ishwara seem to
have independent existence from the jeeva's point of view, shuruti does
not say this world is mere kalpita from the jeeva. Shruti and shankara by
insisting the kArya-kAraNa ananyatva say brahman is the abhinna
nimittOpadAna kAraNa of this jagat, he is not only antaryAmi (substance)
he is the material (upAdAna) as well. I dont think Sri SSS has differed
from this view of shankara and shruti in the context of real event of
creation and existing world (kArya) in its kAraNa svarUpa.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
