Duality and non-duality (Gaudapada)


“The dualists (Samkhya o Vaisheshika, Buddhists or Jains) firmly cling to their respective systems and contradict each other. But this system is not contradicted by them. For non_duality is the only Reality, while duality is only its appearance. For them it is duality alone both ways ( i.e. as Reality or appearance). Therefore this system is not contradicted by them.”
