The Institute proposed to be opened is to teach Vedic Karmakand mainly on
ritualistic upasanas which philosophically belongs to Purva Mimamsa
Darshan. Though it is encouraged to revive the lost heritage, it is pointed
out by all his teachings by Shankara that Vedanta Philosophy is the highest
which is followed by Advaitins i.e. Nondualistic. Even most of the Mutts
preach advaita but practice rituals by conducting Homa, Yajna and Yaga etc.
Shankara says in his Gita Bhashya that " KEvaladeva Jnanat Mokshaha
ItyarthO nishchitO Gitasu Upanishatsu cha" and also "Chittasya ShudahayE
karma na tu Vastoopalabhdaye" in his Viveka Chudamani. Infact the whole text
of Viveka Chudamani talks of a single Objective of Atma Anatma Viveka
leading to Moksha.
Hence it is imperative to open Schools which teach Uttara Mimamsa or Vedanta
Philosophy only as it is the highest rung of all Darshanas. I am unable to
comprehend why Karmakand is practiced even after knowing the above Reality
by the existing and new Schools. The learned can elucidate in justification.
