The issue for non-advaitic thinkers about advaitic understanding is this;
1. The very term "māṁ vetti tattvataḥ" is quite irreconcilable given the
advaitic framework. Given that Shankara denies pramAtR^itva of the Self (
in BU2.4.14), there is no question of vetti of Krishna is talking about.
2. Given that Krishna said others have attained HIM, it is irreconcilable to
do non-duality of Krishna.
3. Given that only few will attain/attained Him, it irreconcilable to do
non-duality between those who attained and those who do not.
4. Given the past tense usage (many have attained Him), it is irreconcilable to
the fact that why this dvavda-prapanch continue to exist when a single
instance of jIva has already attained in the past. Does this means mOxa and
bhanda avasta co-exist in parallel? What happen to the denial of duality?
