~vlm.3. Bhusunda replied, You sir, that know all things and would yet ask me to tell thatyou know full well. Such bidding of my master emboldens your servant to speak out where he should otherwise hold his tongue.

~sv.6.23.3. BHUSUNDA replied: O sage, you know everything, yet you ask this question in order to cultivate the eloquence of your servant. I shall answer your question; for obedience is the best form of worshipping saints.

~vlm.29. There is nothing that is felicitous or persistent in this world, amidst all its sorrows and sicknesses and troubles which encompass all about. All our actions are for trivial matters and all our gains are but trifles at best.

Ø#tt. #tuccha -adj.- empty, vain, small, little, trifling • tuccham anything trifling • chaff • "the absolutely non-existent". •• "The world-appearance is not, since it does not continue to manifest itself in all times, and has its manifestation up to the moment that the right knowledge dawns. It is not therefore "is not" in the sense that a "castle in the air" or a hare's horn is "is not," for these are called #tuccha, the absolutely non-existent. The world-appearance is said to be "is" or existing, since it appears to be so for the time the state of ignorance persists in us. Since it exists for a time it is #sat (is), but since it does not exist for all times it is asat (is not). This is the appearance, the falsehood of the world-appearance (jagat-prapaJca) that it is neither .sat nor .asat in an absolute sense. Or rather it may also be said in another way that the falsehood of the world-appearance consists in this, that though it appears to be the reality or an expression or manifestation of the reality, the being, .sat, yet when the reality is once rightly comprehended, it will be manifest that the world never existed, does not exist, and will never exist again."

The world.appearance is said to be "is" or existing, since it appears to be so for the time the state of ignorance persists in us. Since it exists for a time it is #sat (is), but since it does not exist for all times it is asat (is not). This is the appearance, the falsehood of the world.appearance (jagat.prapaJca) that it is neither .sat nor .asat in an absolute sense. Or rather it may also be said in another way that the falsehood of the world.appearance consists in this, that though it appears to be the reality or an expression or manifestation of the reality, the being, .sat, yet when the reality is once rightly comprehended, it will be manifest that the world never existed, does not exist, and will never exist again."
