    Let’s look to another śloka that gives us ( perhaps me) some pause on how profound the bhāgavad gītā’s offering is and its ability to talk on mutliple levels.

    Within the trika¹ view of reality all and everything that exists, or did not exist is none other than śiva – a very full and encompassing view no doubt.

    Within dvaita, one may say - oh yes, I feel one with you, and with you, and you. It is one person's "I-feeling' saying they feel one with another 'I' person ( or...

    From the bṛhadaraṇyaka upaniṣad - puruṣavidha-brāhmaṇa, 2nd śloka.
    Any time there is a sense of 2, fear arises i.e. dvitiyad vai bhayam bhavati¹ - Fear is...

    If there is not two, how can ātmasamarpaṇaṃ¹ or Self-surrender be possible ?

    Where can we find this knowledge ? For those looking , you will be well-served by the māṇḍūkya¹ upaniṣad :

    The ~one~ is quite interesting. We can agree that it is the absence of all 'two' , the absence of all diversity. Yet there are a few ways to look at this. Just like...
