Sri Anand Ji observed
<< I think this is what the Swamiji is
alluding to when he says the BrahmajnAna from the upanishad pramANa is a
vRtti jnAna, as opposed to a svarUpajnAna. The brahmajnAna is only required
to put an end to avidyA, and not beyond that. >> .
My understanding is the same. Svarupa Jnana of Brahman is not under
consideration in the context in which the Swamiji has referred to the term
“ Akhandakara Vritti “ in his talk. Same is the case in the context in
which Sri Sadananda Yogi has referred to that term in his work Vedanta Sara
quoted by me earlier in the thread. I had highlighted it in my response to
Sri Aurobind Padiyath Ji also.
This will be my response to Sri Nitin Sridhar also ( in another related
thread ) . No doubt Sri Sadananda Ji also alludes to Svarupa Jnana in the
context of Akhandakara Vritti ( in the related thread ). However I have not
come across the use of the word “ akhandakara Vritti “ in that context so
far. And my understanding of the talk by the Swamiji is that he has not
referred to it either.
