The vedas are a pramANa, a means of knowledge. When will a pramANa be a
pramANa? If there is a knower, who uses the pramANa to know the known. What
do the Veda's ultimately reveal? That Brahman is the only reality. That is,
apart from Brahman, there is nothing. What is Brahman? It is the jIva
himself. Thus apart from the essence of the jIva, there is nothing else.
Everything that appears, is that essence, the jIva's svarUpa. Thus once
this is known- the knower, the known and the means of knowledge are all
understood as Brahman, and nothing else. Therefore, because there is
nothing further to be known, and because the division of the one Brahman
into a knower, known and the means of knowledge is revealed to be unreal,
the Veda is no more veda.
