How come Sankara Bhagavatpada, whose vision reverberates with shruti vakya
"EkaM sat viprAH bahudhA vadanti", is labelled as vaishnava?
One line of argument to call shankara as vaishNava is that shankara
whenever talks about 'pratikOpAsana' he invariably refers to 'vishNu
sAligrAma' & nowhere he gives the example of shiva lingam. And another
line is, since shankara is himself an incarnation of bhagavAn shiva, he
always contemplates & prays vishNu. It is just like shiva who is parama
bhAgavata, always immerse himself in rAma dhyAna !! IMO, these are all
some fanatic observations of some staunch vaishNavaites.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
