Hari Om Bhaskar Prabhu ji,
I have gone through the bhAshya.
Clay-pot requires space which is different from clay. Without that the
drishtAnta does not work. upAdhi-drishti and svarUpa-drishti are not
possible if there is singular changeless entity. How is upAdhi-drishti
possible? And even if possible, upAdhi-drishti itself connoted change.
यदि हि नाम रूप न व्याक्रियेते.. But on the contrary, if there is
manifestation of name-form, then changelessness is compromised.
