Panchadasi - (111)

The Chapter XI continues.....

Verse 22:- (Objection):  Granting that there is no happiness
in duality, there is not happiness in non-duality either.  If
you maintain that there is, then it must be experienced,
and then there will be grief.

Verse 23:-  (Reply): 'Let there be no experience of happiness
in the state of non duality.  But non duality is itself Bliss. 'What is
the proof?'  'The self reealing requires no other proof.

Verse 24:-  Your objection itself is evidence of self-revealing
nature of the existence of the self-conscious non duality.
For, you admit the existence of the secondless and merely
contend that it is not bliss.

(The saying that there is no happiness in the condition of
non duality, you only entertain a doubt regarding the existence
of happiness, but now about non duality)

Verse 25:-  (Objection): I do not admit non duality but only
accept it as a hypothesis to be refuted.  (Reply):  Then tell us
what existed before duality emerged.

To be contd....
