    Veda says that bliss is Brahman
    62) Sopi vargottamo Brahma shrutah .

    (If you say that Veda says that bliss is Brahman, here the word Brahman stands for the best in the category of desirable qualities. If you give same meaning to Brahman, contradiction appears).

    Veda also says that bliss is Brahman (Anando Brahma). Here the word Brahman stands for the best in the category of desirable qualities. Bliss is the most desirable quality of awareness. Hence, bliss can be called as Brahman. Like this, you have to give different meanings for the word Brahman in both these contexts. Otherwise, there will be self contradiction. If you say that this is the house of the king and at the same time say that the house itself is the king, it becomes self contradiction. In the first statement king means an alive person. In the second statement, king means the best among the houses. Now both the statements can be correlated.
