And it is that formality and clarity which counts.
Other kinds of
Vedantins also claim their descent from Shri Narayana,
such as Yajnavalkya etc. as their own. we can claim
we really can't prove it either way. It's only with
Shankaracharya that we can really establish Advaita
parampara on a
historical footing. I've also given the names of a
on advaita-l but their particular parampara no longer
through Shankaracharya. If others were able to grasp
however poorly it has been due to Shankaracharya.
Else we would be
to trace their ideas through history. We can't.
A side question:
We recite: sadAsiva samarambham ....
also, I know based on Bhagavata tradition, we believe
Lord Narayana taught Sanaka, Sanandana rishis.
What is the reconciliation between these two
Om Namo Narayanaya !!
So, how and why
