Pranams to all.
Sri Shankara in his Introductory commentary to Shloka 1-3-13 of Kathopanishad writes
EvaM puruShE Atmani sarvaM pravilApya nAmarUpakarmatrayaM yanmithyAJnAnavijRumBitaM
kriyAkArakaPalalaKsHaNaM svAtmayAthAtmyajnAnEna marIcyudakarajjusarpagaganamalAnIva

Readers may please refer to mantra 2-2-12 of Mundakopanishad and Sri Shankara's commentary upon that mantra which has a bearing upon the above quoted BAShya.
Upanishads loudly proclaim : ahamEvEdagaM sarvam ||Chandogya 7-25-1
AtmaivEdagaM sarvam || Chandogya 7-25-2.
WHere do the gods of theology come into the picture?
In the light of the above teaching I would like to know in what way the information provided in the posting is of any use to a mumkshu who is after Atmajnana. Will it not be more beneficial to majority of the readers to familarize the members with such kind of precious teachings of Sri Shankara as quoted above. I am of the opinion that this kind of highlighting of Sri Shankara's such teachings by eminent leaders of this group will be very beneficial to all.
Kindly pardon me for sharing my thoughts.
I will close this posting of mine with a quotation from Mundaka Upanishad : anya vAcO vimuNcatha ||
