शास्त्रदृष्ट्या तूपदेशो वामदेववत् ॥ ३० ॥
śāstradṛṣṭyā tūpadeśo vāmadevavat || 30 ||
śāstradṛṣṭyā—Through realization of the Truth confirmed by the scriptures; tu—but; upadeśaḥ—instruction; vāmadevavat—like Vamadeva.
30 . But (Indra’s) instruction (to Pratardana is justified) by his realization of the Truth confirmed by the scriptures (viz. that he is Brahman), as did (the sage) Vamadeva.
Rishi Vamadeva having realized Brahman said “I was Manu, and the sun,” etc., which is justified by the passage r “Whichsoever of the gods knew It (Brahman) became That” (Brih. 1. 4. 10). Indra’s instruction also is like that. Having realized the truth, “Thou art That”, declared by the scriptures, he identifies himself in the instruction with the Supreme Brahman.
