> > science can never validate or invalidate the absolute > truth of the universe. vedanta alone is pramaana. sir, there seems to be a misunderstanding here. i am not trying to discount sruti pramana. the utility of the sruti is a vast topic in its own right and is not something i want to get into at the moment. nevertheless, we must note the following key features of vedanta: 1. it proclaims jivanmukti 2. it holds mukti to be the realization of one's true svarupa any statement regarding the utility of the sruti pramana must take the above into account. to put it crudely, the sruti pramana is "valid because it works". on avasthatraya, there are certain issues with it that i find confusing. so all i wanted was to see if the same point could be explained through some other analysis. after all, the sruti teaches the same thing through innumerable prakriya-s. > any way, let me know if you find the answer to your > inquiry. sure, i will dhanyavadah ramesh -----------------------------_______________________________________________ archives: http://lists.advaita-vedanta.org/archives/advaita-l/ to unsubscribe or change your options: http://lists.advaita-vedanta.org/cgi-bin/listinfo/advaita-l for assistance, contact: listmaster@advaita-vedanta.org end of advaita-l digest, vol 55, issue 23 ***************************************** deletereplyforwardspammove... previous | next | back to messages save message text | full headers check mailcompose search mail: search mailsearch the web move options [new folder] dr. rajamohan writing flder advaita buying and selling dto franchise guide health and beauty
