Srinivasa Rao

Oxford University Press

The term Advaita which literally means non-duality, is a denial only of the ultimacy of duality and difference. It only means that there is no difference which is so radical, ultimate and fundamental that we will have to concede that there is something else or someone that is truly “other” than ourselves. In other words, it is sarvātmabhāva. While we may always have enough basis to say about anything: “It looks or appears to be different”, we never have sufficient basis to say: “It is different; it is really, absolutely another”

Keywords:   duality, non-duality, difference, sarvātmabhāva, different
