If BhartRprapancha considers both (jagat and Brahman) as Real (paramArtham)
viz bheda in bandha is satyam and abheda in mokSha is satyam too - which
seems Dualistic, which is termed BhedAbhedha, how can jnAna (it being vastu
tantra) bring about avidyAnivrittiH, by destroying the satya jagat ?

mithyA jagat alone can be destroyed/sublated by aikya jnAna.
