Hari Om !!
Thank you for the information.
I read that Sri Malayala Swami studied Pancha Kavya
along with the Prasthana Trayi.
My doubt is why should one study (rather recommended
to study ) these Kavyas instead of Puranas, as part of
essential (aid in) Advaita sadhana ? What help are
these supposed to render.
Thank you for your comments.
Om Namo Narayanaya !!
