dha-buddhaych tsB 10.2.321. The realization o[the Absolute Truth is the platform of vistrddha-sailva. So unless one comes to the platform o[ personal realization of the Lorcl, one is supposed to be aviSuddha-buddhi: intelligence is not yet perfectly pure. So here it is said, elta-vastu. So far the substance is concernecl, that iseha-vastu. Just like in logical categories the substance is there, and there are many categories. Take for example that the Absolute Truth is one, but there are categories: "This is Sahti-tattva; this is prahasa-tattvd; this is incarnation tattvd; this is marginal potdn- cy; this is external potency." Parasya ialttir vividhaiva Srhyate [Cc. Mcrclhya 13.65, purportl. There are many mu.ltipotencies. Because the original is Absolute Truth, in one sense everyone is in the same absolute platform.

Dehino'stnin yatha dehe haumarai'r yauvanarh.jara lBg.2.l3l. The dehi, rhe soul, is within the bocly. The body is nor rhe soul. So rhis is different. Soul is difflerent from the body. We have studied. But in another sense, soul is not different from the body, another sense. How? Because the body', the material body, is also coming from the same source, and the spiritual soul is coming from the salne source, Kfsla. Krsna says, apareyam.
