विद्यैव तु, निर्धारणात् ॥ ४७ ॥
vidyaiva tu, nirdhāraṇāt || 47 ||
vidyā—Vidya; eva—indeed; tu—but; nirdhāraṇāt—because (the Sruti) asserts it.
47. But (the fires) rather form a Vidya, because (the Sruti) asserts it.
‘But’ refutes the opponent. The Sutra says that the fires constitute a Vidya, for the text asserts that “They are made of knowledge only,” and that “By knowledge and meditation they are made for him.”
