Sri Dakshinamurty Stotram, Verse 10, is a Palasruti, the Benediction Verse. 

The all-pervasiveness of the Atma is clearly expounded in this
hymn.  By its recital, hearing, and meditation on its implied
meaning, the devoted disciple attains to that all-pervasiveness
of the Atman.  He further fully realizes his oneness with It,
including the unhindered lordship over the whole universe, becoming the very essence of the eight fold manifestations referred
to in Verse 9.  He reaches the plenitude of realization and spiritual

This Verse speaks about all-pervasiveness of the Atman, which is
attained by the devotee or a sadhak. Sarvatmavtam says Sri
Sankara.  What does it mean?  Does it mean, that you will
become God or Brahman.  Yes.  You will become Brahman or
God but you will not become the ruler.  Here the rulership is
not indicated because, after realizing Brahman, where is separate
"you" to become a ruler and have many people to be ruled?
The ruler and the ruled implies dualism and it is not definitely
indicated here.  We become one with Brahman and whatever
Brahman is, we are.  That is all.

Then, Sri Sankara says Isvaratvam and mahavibhuti sahitam.
WE become Isvara with all powers and riches.  Here again
it is indicated here, that the mahavibhuti sahitam isvaratvam,
is the power of siddhis and supernatural powers.  But a Brahma
Jnani will not care for them.  Bhagavan Ramana says that siddhis
are again dreams.  Why do you want dreams, when you are
constantly awake in Brahmanhood?  So these powers and riches
would come if one wants, but one will not want.

Why great Jnanis do not exhibit supernatural powers?
We shall see.
