Yad Bhavam Tad Bhavati - Source? in Advaita Vedanta Posted October 26, 2011 · Report reply should it have been "Yad Bhavam, tat bhavati"? "What(ever) you be, that you become". I know that the general usage tends to be "yad bhavam, tad bhavati" But somehow, I find that "tad" does not sit in well with the meaning of the word. But it sure does rhyme well with "yad".
