Because vedaanta j~naanam eliminates duality


      The first reason Shankara says is the vedaanta j~naanam eliminates duality, which is the very basis for karma and upaasanaa.

      tat kena kaM pashyet (there seer-seen distinctions gone) - na iha naanaa astiki.nchana (there is no speck of plurality) - yasmin sarvaaNi bhuutaani aatmaa eva abhuut ( where all the beings other than the self non-existent), etc says Vedanta. upaasanaa also requires upaasya - upaasaka bheda, karma requires kartR^i - karaNa aadi bheda and Vedanta knocks off all these bheda -s involving subject-object dualities. After a knowledge of Advaita how can Advaita j~naanam be applied in the field of dvaitam. It is impossible.
