but they downplay varna and believe in Veda Adhikara for all, etc.
Veda adhikAra has been denied to non-dvija-s and stree, that is the traditional stand which has the stamp of bhAshyakAra also. And traditional mutts dare not to deviate from this injunction. Other neo-advaitic and other institutions hardly care !!! Few years back I was talking to a very knowledgeable 'vaishya saNyAsi' at kAryAlaya, during the discussion, he made a passing comment that there is no entry as a participant in the vidvat sadas (vAkyArtha sabha) for the sanyasi-s and scholars other than brAhmaNa community !! I don’t know the existing practice with regard to this at traditional mutts. Would like to hear more on this issue.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
