This we attempt briefly in chapter two. Interesting as Bhartrhari's theory is, we want to be able to avoid some of the metaphysical assumptions that are germain to his system - for instance, that there is an ontological identity between language, at its most subtle level, and reality, in its penultimate nature. Nor do we want to assume that the problem of the relation between knowledge and reality is reducible to the problem of the relation between knowledge and meaning and between language and reality.

A is sometimes taken to be discrete units of meaning, such as a word, a letter,or a particle, through which 'meaning', as it were, 'bursts forth'. D. 22 The reference, then, is not to any meaning-bearing element as such, unless the association is with a sentence. Bhartrhari may, however, in certain circumstances, and for purposes of grammatical analysis, accept pada or word-unit to be meaningful independently of a sentence, but he would, it seems, deny meaningfulness to varlJa or 'phonematic unit' ('letter') in its own right, as Joshi points out.
