Dear Rajaram Venkataramani,
>>>This "fall down", "saviour" etc. are good initial sentiments.
Examples are meant to convey certain aspect; not for enquiring further with 'whys' & 'hows'. It will lead to more confusion and also..
>>>>When we ask who fell down, who saves, why did he allow me to fall etc. these sentiments will not persist.
... leads to infinite regression
>>>You have not answered the key questions in yes or no format.
>>>Hence, I don't know your position clearly on Lord's form as much as I know Madhusudana's.
I 'm repeating for your convenience the following:
>>1. Is the lord's body made of five elements?
>>2. Is the lord's body made of subtle elements?
>>3. Is the Lord actually embodied as we are?
Lord shortchanged the subtle and gross unlike me to appear. I see him embodied because of my ignorance.
>>Is there a real relationship between the Lord and His body?
When the body of the Lord is an appearance (due to my ignorance) what relationship can one cast!
>>Am I an advaitin?
Mine is for 'vasanakshayam'. i.e work in progress.
