English of translation of Brahmasutra 4.2.10 by Roma Bose:
“Hence not (the immortality which takes place) through the destruction (of the body).”
Nimbārka’s commentary (Vedānta-pārijāta-saurabha):
Śrīnivāsa’s commentary (Vedānta-kaustubha)
“Hence,” i.e. on account of the group of reasons stated above, the scriptural text: “Then a mortal becomes immortal” (Bṛhadāraṇyaka-upaniṣad 4.4.7) does “not” speak of an immortality which takes place “through the destruction” of one’s connection with the body.
Comparative views of Śaṅkara and Bhāskara:
Interpretation different, viz. “Hence (i.e. on account of its subtleness), (the subtle body is) not (destroyed) through the burning (of the gross body)”.
