<< Chapter 13 verse 29


yadā bhūta-pṛthag-bhāvam
eka-stham anupaśyati
tata eva ca vistāraṁ
brahma sampadyate tadā

‘When he perceives the diversity of existence centred in the unity; that from thence (unity) alone is expansion, then doth he attain to brahma (soul).’

Diversity (pṛithag-bhāva) is the diversity such as being deva, being man, being short, being tall etc., seen in the variety of existences such as deva and the rest, —existences constituted of the dual principles of prakṛiti (matter-stuff) and purusha (spirit-stuff)

Eka-stham=centred in the unity=the unic principle (=eka-tatva) =the matter-stuff not the soul-stuff.

Expansion (vistāra) is the multiplication of differentiated existences to run on in successive form-manifestations such as children, grand-children etc., all emanating from that unic matter-principle. Whoso thus perceives that all differences have their origin in matter,
(not ātma), attains to brahma, i.e., realizes ātma in its state of infinitely expanded consciousness.

>> Chapter 13 verse 31
