विकल्पः, अविशिष्ट-फलत्वात् ॥ ५९ ॥
vikalpaḥ, aviśiṣṭa-phalatvāt || 59 ||
vikalpaḥ—Option; aviśiṣṭa-phalatvāt—on account of (all Vidyas) having the same result.
59. There is option (with respect to the several Vidyas), because the result (of all the Vidyas) is the same.
As the result of all the Vidyas is the realization of Brahman, it is enough if one takes up any one of them according to his liking and sticks to it till he reaches the goal. And once Brahman is realized through one of these Vidyas, resorting to another is useless. Besides, to practise more than one meditation at a time would only distract one’s mind and thereby retard one’s progress. Therefore one must restrict oneself to one particular Vidya.
