Namaste Praveen Ji,
Reg << Would anyone know if these Swamijis talk of DSV/ EJV anywhere in
any of their talks in explaining Srishti prakriya of any work?>>,
You can refer to the ongoing talks on Vichara Sagara by Swami
Paramarthananda. In the earlier part of the talks he mentioned that the
work subscribes to DSV though I am not sure if it subscribes to EJV.
Swamiji mentioned that a detailed account of DSV will be covered in later
part of the talks. But I lost access to that part since the talks are not
made available freely for the past some time.
Reg << I do not see why it has to be that way and so I do not agree it is
that way. If its not specifically mentioned, one can explain it using
either SDV or DSV as long as the explanation fits. I can bring in DSV too
in almost all creation stories.>>,
I did not mean that they cannot be explained by DSV. I only meant that
generally explanation is given by way of SDV.
