The fact is very simple, direct and self-evident (that is
why it is called no phala vyaapti). It is the very subject
Knower who is currently confused by taking anaatam as the
self or aatma. For him, teaching is required to recognize or
reclaim his true nature- End of the Story.
It is further complicated first, by the sophisticated word
- Akhandaakaara vRitti - second sanskrit derivations and
commentaries, and further commentaries - As I understand:
The word which neither scriptures used or Shankara
used but latter Advaita Acharyas had to use it to counter
arguments of the non-advaitic daarshanikas
Currently I take myself what I am not as myself, therefore
suffer. I have to drop that misunderstanding . That
can be dropped by correct and clear understanding that
involves I am pure sat chit ananda but expressing myself
with the traid - jiiva-jagat-Iswara - in essence I am
infinite or aham brahma asmi and everything else or anaatma
is just appear to be there for only transactions and not
there from absolute point - For this I need the Vedantic
teaching which says the world is nothing but naama and ruupa
with the substantive - the self that I am. This
understanding has to occur for the mind that is confused
currently. Hence it can only happen in the waking state
since inquiry is required using a pramaana by the mind that
Krishna puts this in simple direct teaching as -
sarvabhutastam aatmaanam sarva bhuutanicha aatmani or from
Bhakti point - yo maam pasyati sarvatra and sarvanca mayi
pasyati. One who sees himself in everything and everything
in himself - or one who see Me in everything and everything
in Me - That seeing or recognition as FACT and not just as
THOUGHT is self-realization and that factual knowledge
remains in the mind all the time (provides all the lingering
vaasanas that contribute to confusion have been sorted out)
- is same as akhandaakaara vRiti - A fancy name for the
simple self-evident fact, but being missed due to vaasanaas.
With that understanding - every thing else or anaatma become
vibhuti of my own self. Hence anaatma does not perturb my
clear understanding even while I am transacting with the
traid - jiiva-jagat-Iswara.
My apologies to scholars here if they feel offended.
