Everything is born from the viewpoint t of ordinary men (samvriti), and therefore there is nothing eternal. As a matter of fact, however, everything is unborn and so there is no destruction whatever. Gaudapada karika – 4-57
Here samvriti means ‘concealing’, the common sense view of people under the influence of ‘ignorance’ (Avidya), but from the viewpoint of things as they are, i.e. viewed from the position of reality, everything is the One entity, the unborn Self, and there is nothing destructible.
