Again I am not able to relate your geeta shloka quote with my doubt. Yes, it is no doubt this this jnana which is enshrined by vedOpanishat will be appreciated by all Rishi-s…But how can this answer my question with regard to pUrva meemAmsa and krishNAvatAra in dvApara!!?? Kindly pardon me for again raising doubt and bear with this dull wit.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!

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. // You may find this particular verse of Gita interesting-
ऋषिभिर्बहुधा गीतं छन्दोभिर्बिबिधैः पृथक।
ब्रह्मसूत्रपदैश्चैब हेतुमद्भिर्बिनिश्चितैः।। १३/५

By the time BhagavAn took his Krishna avatar the pUrva mImAmsa had corrupted leaving very little scope for Vedānta to even breathe!

Hence had to denounce it badly. Also 'jnAnam' being a matter of mind and intelligence; external, physical renunciation, sannyasa was less important.

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'!
