उपपत्तेश्च ॥ ३५ ॥

upapatteḥ—From reasoning; ca—and.
35. And it is reasonable.
This Sutra explains further that connection and difference are not to be taken as real, but only metaphorically. The connection of the Jiva with Brahman in deep sleep cannot be real. “It merges in its Self” (Chh. 6. 8. 1), shows that the connection of the soul with Brahman is a natural, inherent identity, and not as between two things. Similarly the difference referred to is not real, but due to ignorance, as can be gathered from hundreds of texts.
