अविभागः, वचनात् ॥ १६ ॥
avibhāgaḥ, vacanāt || 16 ||
avibhāgaḥ—Non-distinction; vacanāt—on account of the statement (of the scriptures).
16. (Absolute) non-distinction (with Brahman of the parts merged takes place) according to the statement (of the scriptures).
“Their names and forms are destroyed, and people speak of the Purusha only. Then he becomes devoid of digits and immortal” (Pr. 6. 5). The digits get absolutely merged in the Supreme Brahman. The merging in the case of the knower of Brahman is absolute, whereas in the case of an ordinary person it is not so; they exist in a fine potential state, the cause of future rebirth. But in the case of the knower of Brahman, Knowledge having destroyed ignorance, all these digits which are but its effects, get merged absolutely, without any chance of cropping up again.
