NOTe sudarshan your double pruning is correct regarding advaitins view on tattwam asi. but you have to properly prune both the objects " tat " and tvam. tat should mean according to advaitin - ishwara , devoid of all adjuncts that makes him an ishwara...ie. it is bramhan (nirguna only) without the maya adjuncts which make him appear as ishwara is the same bramhan as the the jeeva - devoid of all adjuncts that make bramhan appear as finite jeeva. note the clear double pruning alll the way. this was not clear in your statement. only then the "art" or " are" part of the statement can be taken to mean " identical" Please let me know where you got your double pruning algorithm? I hope this is not from standard authors!! oops.
