Sanskrit text, Unicode transliteration and English translation by Ganganath Jha:
प्रधानपरिणामेन समं च ब्रह्मदर्शनम् ।
तद्दूषणानुसारेण बोद्धव्यमिह दूषणम् ॥ १५२ ॥
pradhānapariṇāmena samaṃ ca brahmadarśanam |
taddūṣaṇānusāreṇa boddhavyamiha dūṣaṇam || 152 ||
This doctrine of ‘Brahman’ also is similar to the doctrine of the ‘evolution from primordial matter’; and the objections urged against this latter should be understood to be applicable to the former also.—(152)
Kamalaśīla’s commentary (tattvasaṃgrahapañjikā):
With the following Text, the Author applies the previously-detailed objections to this doctrine also:—[see verse 152 above]
The objection may be stated thus:—‘The World cannot be the effect of Sound,—because it exists,—like the cognition of the Cause; hence what is meant to be the Cause cannot be the Cause,—because it cannot be so proved,—like the other Self’,—and so on.—(152)
End of the Chapter on the Doctrine of ‘Sound-Brahman’.
