saṃbandhāt—On account of the connection; evam—like this; anyatra—in other cases; api—also.
20. In other eases also (e.g. in the Vidya of the Satya Brahman) on account of the connection (i.e. the object of the meditation being the Satya Brahman) (we have to combine particulars) like this (i.e. as in the Sandilya Vidya).
This Sutra sets forth the view of the opponent. “Satya is Brahman. . . . That which is Satya is that sun—the being who is in that orb and the being who is in the right eye” (Brih. 5. 5. 1-2). This gives the abode of the Satya Brahman with respect to the gods and the body, and two secret names of the Satya Brahman are also taught in connection with these abodes; the former is ‘Ahar’ and the latter ‘Aham’. Now on the analogy of the Sandilya Vidya, since the object of meditation is one, viz. the Satya Brahman, we must combine the particulars. Therefore both the names ‘Ahar’ and ‘Aham’ have to be combined with respect to Satya Brahman.
