Dear SrI Ravi,
I just wish to add a few lines to my earlier message as to your wise
I am outright aware that I by hammering it in, I might soon be irritating
quite a few (if not all) members, although it is not at all in my intention.
And I also must stress that I have not been committed by anybody to "teach"
anyone, being only a very common or even very lowly seeker, knowing nothing
about the bare fact that I know that I am knowing nothing, which is already
something in itself.
It happens, however, that I remain sometimes under the impression (maybe
false) that a certain number of A-L members, while they pose to be advaitins
are in fact behaving more or less like the dvaitins criticized in the Maa.
Kaa. 3-17: firmly rooted (nishcitAH) in the methodologies leading to their
own conclusions (svasidhAnta-vyavasthAsu) they stand arrayed against one
another (parasparam virudhyante). The non-dualist never quarrels with
"If there is a second thing only, one will have to be afraid of it - is it
(BR^i° U° 1.4.2). Paraphrasing this quite famous statement, we could say "if
there is a second entity only, one may quarrel with it or have a dispute
I do apologise for these conceited and probably preposterous remarks.
