मुक्तोपसृप्यव्यपदेशात् ॥ २ ॥
muktopasṛpyavyapadeśāt || 2 ||
mukta-upasṛpya—To be attained by the liberated; vyapadeśāt—because of the statement.
2. Because of the statement (in the scriptures) that that is to be attained by the liberated.
A further reason is given to show that Brahman is meant in the passage under discussion. It is the goal of the liberated. Vide Mu. 2. 2. 9; 3. 2. 8. Therefore it can be Brahman alone.
