अविभागेन, दृष्टत्वात् ॥ ४ ॥
avibhāgena, dṛṣṭatvāt || 4 ||
avibhāgena—As inseparable; dṛṣṭatvāt—for it is so seen from the scriptures.
4. (The Jiva in the state of Liberation exists) as inseparable (from Brahman), for it is so seen from the scriptures.
The question is raised whether the Jiva in the state of Liberation exists as different from Brahman or as one with, and inseparable from, It. The Sutra says that it exists as inseparable from Brahman, for the scriptures say so. “That thou art” (Chh. 6. 8. 7); “I am Brahman” (Brih. 1. 4. 10); “Being but Brahman, he is merged in Brahman” (Brih. 4. 4. 6)—all these texts declare that the released soul is identical with Brahman. Passages which speak of difference have to be explained in a secondary sense as expressing unity.
