Understanding BG 2

"The Mayavadi theory of oneness of the spirit soul cannot be entertained on the ground that the spirit soul cannot be cut into pieces as a fragmental portion. Such cutting into different individual souls would make the Supreme cleavable or changeable, against the principle of the Supreme Soul being unchangeable :-Bhagavad Gita 2:13" What does it mean

    The individual soul can never become one with the supersoul.
    Mayavada philosophy gives the analogy of water, that, when a drop of water merges in the ocean, it becomes one with the ocean. There is no difference.
    Such an analogy cannot be entertained with respect to the soul and supersoul because the soul is an eternal fragmental part of the supersoul.
    Moreover there is inconceivable difference between the volume of water in a drop and in the ocean. Quantitatively they are different even if they are same in composition or quality.
    The philosophy of acintya bhed-abheda tattva propounded by Lord Caitanya is the correct philosophy.
    Hari Bol!

    Mayavadi philosophy in essence is that two or more spirit souls can merge to form one spirit soul and conversely one soul can split into two or more souls. This is a false philosophy which has no support of any scriptures. But some portions of scriptures(including BG) can be interpreted on the basis of this false understanding. 

    Here SP is providing a logical inference from BG on why mayavada philosophy is wrong. 

    The Mayavadi theory of oneness of the spirit soul cannot be entertained on the ground that the spirit soul cannot be cut into pieces as a fragmental portion.

    This means that mayavadi philosophy is wrong because Krsna says in BG (2.25) that soul cannot be broken into pieces. 

    Such cutting into different individual souls would make the Supreme cleavable or changeable, against the principle of the Supreme Soul being unchangeable

    Here SP is saying that mayavadi philosophy accepts souls to be breakable & changeable which is directly against the eternally unbreakable unchangeable attribute of soul presented in BG(2.25)

    The conclusion is that mayavadi philosophy is wrong and against the principles given in Bhagavad Gita.
