Chapter 11
Vishvarupadarshana Yoga

I am Pure - due to such experience of the self each self can be identified as distinct and separate. In the case of yarn each yam being distinct and separate cannot experience the common identity with the cloth. Therefore, separate identity for the yam and the cloth has to be accepted. Nothing ever exists which has no parts at all.Even for atoms, there exist prior and a later state. But by this one cannot conclude that the atom is made of parts. They remind one only of the totality of its existence. This would make the parts, in fact, incompatible. With the change in the attribute of the parts the change in the entirety could also be predicated. If we accept such change, then it would be difficult to deny the existence of difference even in gross objects.
In the sentient things the attributes etc. exist in deep sleep, in potential form, powerful and wise. Therefore, between the sentient things and the attributes there exists an unbroken connection. In the gross objects there exists nothing else as energy save the one without the second. Besides Him nothing else exists. The Death gives death for him who perceives this as otherwise. Like the rain water falling on the top flows down from the mountains, he who thinks Perennial Principles of the Lord distinct and separate from Him will also go down likewise. Thus, since all the scriptures accordingly so make it evident and the supreme splendour of the Lord also similarly declares all the events terminate in Sri Vishnu alone, through His beneficent attributes. Thus, in Brahma Tarka.
