Sri.Bellamkonda Rama Raya Kavi, while interpreting the "tat-tvaM-asi"
mahAvAkya, has said that this points towards advaita only which is
also the vyAsa nirNaya. He cites a reference sloka from skAnda purANa
(vide 70th chapter of kAshi mAhAtmya) to prove that the sage veda vyAsa has
upheld the use of bhAga-tyAga lakSaNa in interpreting the mahAvAkya.
The slokas are given below:
pratyagbOdhO ya AbhAti sO(a)dvayAnanda lakSaNaH /
advayAnandarUpO yassa pratyagbOdhalakSaNaH //
itthaM anyOnyatAdAtmya pratipattiryadA bhavEt
aikyajnAnaM yadOtpannaM mahAvAkyEna cha AtmanOH //
tattvamasyAdi vAkyESu lakSaNA bhAgalakSaNA /
sO(a)yaM ityAdi vAkyasya padayOriva nAparE //
The above 3 slokas are from skAnda purANa which is vyAsa virachita.
Which implies that the "tat-tvaM-asi" mahAvAkya points towards
jIva-brahma-abhEda tattva which was approved by vyAsa Himself.
However, I need the exact location of these slokas in kAshi mAhAtmya.
Grateful if the source can be shown.
