By the time BhagavAn took his Krishna avatar the pUrva mImAmsa had corrupted leaving very little scope for Vedānta to even breathe!
> I am not able to understand this. Would you please elaborate it. KrishNAvatAra in dvApara, pUrva-uttara meemAmsa divisions etc. is in Kaliyuga..or am I missing something here?? Pls. clarify.
Hence had to denounce it badly. Also 'jnAnam' being a matter of mind and intelligence; external, physical renunciation, sannyasa was less important.
> Shankara repeatedly insists formal saNyAsa (not mere karmaphala saNyAsa but Ashrama saNyAsa) for the jnAnArjana. But also says jnana is not adheena to saNyAsAshrama.
Also BhagavAn had an ulterior motive - to keep Arjun in his present Ashrama to fight the war, destroy 'adharmIs' and reestablish 'DHARMA'. Hence HE promoted 'inner renunciation'!
> Yes, I agree, ashOcyAnanvashOchatvaM, kamaNyevAdhikAraste mA phaleshu kadAchana...are the best suited advice for the arjuna on the battle field.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
