Verse 1.2.17

एतदालम्बनँ श्रेष्ठमेतदालम्बनं परं ।
एतदालम्बनं ज्ञात्वा ब्रह्मलोके महीयते ॥ १७ ॥

etadālambanam̐ śreṣṭhametadālambanaṃ paraṃ ।
etadālambanaṃ jñātvā brahmaloke mahīyate ॥ 17 ॥

17. This prop is the best. This prop is the highest Knowing this prop, one is worshipped in the world of Brahman.

 

Shankara’s Commentary:

Com.—This being so, this prop is the best, i.e., the most praiseworthy of all props, to attain the Brahman. This prop is both the higher and lower; for, it leads to both the highest and the manifested Brahman i.e., of the highest Brahman and the manifested Brahman. The meaning is: he becomes one with the Brahman and he becomes fit to be worshipped like Brahman.
