so, we are accepting mUlAvidyA presence(bhAva rupa) in Pure Existence
Brahma svarUpa), though as mithyA ? ( just like jagat experience as mithyA
after jnAna prApti)
In that case, Pure Existence was never without mUlAvidyA (though mithyA) ?

Existence alone IS :)
Isn't the context , in the beginning ( before creation, before jagat,
before world).. Pure Existence alone IS ( without any mithyA) ? :)

this anvaya introduced the world, to link the context to, after creation as
