-nanu evam api pada-dvaya-lakye brahmai asti-eva vikra tasya


paramrthata sattva-rayatvasya vaktavyatvt anyath aa-vinavad
asattva-prasagt iti akya ha
nanu = no(objection); evam api = granting thus (the shuddhacaitanya is the only reality pointed by two words tat and tvam of the great
dictum), then also; -- pada-dvaya-lakye brahmai = in
Brahman which is the reality pointed by the two words tat and tvam;
- asti-eva vikra = there must be change;
- tasya paramrthata sattva-rayatvasya
vaktavyatvt = as ultimately its (Atmans/caitanyams) also to be declared
to have existence as locus; anyath = if not (if not having existence
as locus) then; - - aa-vinavad asattvaprasagt = just like horns of a hare it(Atman/caitanyam) will also become
non-existent; iti akya = faced with such objection; ha
= the counter is presented in the following verse no 22;


svarpameva me sattvam na tu dharmo nabhastvavat |
madanyasya sato'bhvnna hi s jtiriyate|| 22||
nabhastvavat = like spaceness (is of space); sattvam =

existence; svarpam eva me = (is) my nature alone; na tu

= and not; dharma = my quality; mat anyasya sata =


of (any) existence other than me; abhvt = (there being) absence;

s = existence (my nature); na hi = (is) not indeed; jti = (as)


a class; iyate = is considered

Like spaceness is the nature of space, existence is my very nature,


and not one of my qualities. Existence is not considered as a
classifiable quality because there is no existence apart from Me.

svarpam iti | me mama pada-dvaya-lakyasya sattvam svarpam eva na
tu mad-rita dharma | yath sattvasya sattva-antara-rayatva-abhvt

svarpam iti = verse no: 22 starting with words svarpam is

commented; me = mama = -- pada-dvaya-lakyasya =


for me, the Self, which is pointed by the two words tat and tvam;
sattvam svarpam eva = existence is nature alone; -

na tu mad-rita dharma = not a quality having me as the


locus; yath sattvasya = just like for existence; - - sattva-antara-rayatva-abhvt = since there is no other

existence as locus; na asattvam = (the existence can) not be of

the nature of non-existence; tadvad = similarly (since existence is


my(Atmans) nature and there exist no Self other than me, I, the
Self/Atman cannot be said to have become of the nature of non-existence);
iti artha = this is the conclusion.
