The Lord said: “Seeing that the whole universe is comprised of one Paramatman, is pervaded by the same Prakriti and the same Purusha and is one with Purusha and Prakriti, one should neither praise nor condemn other’s natures and actions.
Whoever censures or praises the natures and acts of others will begin to think that the world is real and will fall from his purpose of attaining wisdom. He will thus soon get lost. The mind is directed to a false channel and it deviates from the right path.
When the senses, the product of Rajasic Ahamkara are overpowered by sleep, the Jiva loses his external consciousness and experiences illusive dreams or death-like sleep. Similarly does the man who perceives differences between objects and beholds plurality. They do not realise the eternal Atman within because of the mind’s delusion.
In duality what is unreal, what is good or what is bad and to which extent? To one who has realised the Self and beholds the one Atman everywhere, what is there good and bad or real in this world? Whatever is uttered by the tongue and conceived by the mind is unreal.
Even unreal things like reflections, echoes, illusory appearances like snake in the rope etc., produce some effect. Even so the body and other things produce fear till death or till they are dissolved in Prakriti.
