There being only BRAHMAN alone , be of the certitude that there is no non-Self .

There being only BRAHMAN alone , be of the certitude that there is no non-Self .

RIBHU GITA | CHAPTER 1 | VERSE 21

If there be any concept of nontruth , a concept of truth will also arise , with it .

Likewise , if there is auspiciousness , there will be inauspiciousness .

There being only BRAHMAN alone , be of the certitude that there is no non-Self .

If there is " this " , there is " that " ; in the absence of " that " , there is no " this " either .


RIBHU GITA | CHAPTER 1 | VERSE 25

If there is duality , there is ( a concept of ) nonduality ; in the absence of duality , there is no ( concept of ) nonduality either .

If there is something to be seen , a seer is also there ; in the absence of anything to see , there is no seer at all either .
