This last verse is the phala sruti. It has been made clear that Lord Dakshinamurti is the truth of everything, the manifested and the manifest is one and the same and this takes a form of Sarvātmābhāva whichi s the hallmark of a Jnani. Lord Dakishinamurti is the last frontier of duality that resolves into Sarvātmābhāva.

Dakshinamurthy Stotram 13

The one who sees the world as cause and effect is the same 'I' that shines in and through all the states. The logic that the 'I' never comes to an end is in keeping with the Śruti, which says there is no difference between Īśvara and jiva other than añjanaṃ. When it is removed the person sees everything as one. The purpose of the teaching therefore, is the removal of removal of añjanaṃ or añjanaṃ nivṛtiḥ.
