Bhagavat Sandarbha is the second book of this anthology. In this volume, Śrī Jīva builds on the overview provided in Tattva Sandarbha to elucidate on, in explicit detail, the nature of that nondual Reality. He covers the topic of ontology, or sambandha-jñāna, knowledge of Reality as the nondual Absolute, which finds its highest completion exclusively in Bhagavān, the transcendent personal Absolute. The one indivisible total Reality is referred to primarily by the names Brahman, Paramātmā and Bhagavān.
The book describes Bhagavān, the Supreme Person, as the most complete manifestation of nondual Reality, inclusive of Brahman and Paramātmā. It also describes His diverse energies, qualities, name, form, associates, and abode as intrinsic aspects of His essential being.

The spiritual ahankara is giving energy to the material ahankara. The spiritual I gives consciousness to the material I, so you think that, ‘I am this body.’ This identification is very deep and it is not easy to get out of it. It is very difficult to transcend the maya because the atma itself doesn’t have any potency to get out of it. It needs the intrinsic potency. That is why Bhakti is necessary.
