Yes, it does. As I said one particular person has quoted rock stars in
support of advaita on this very list. As I never met Ramana Maharshi,
the question of what I asked him does not arise at all. If he had made
the statement and I was around, I would have requested clarification.

incomplete statements of everyone, much less a mahant like Ramana
Maharshi. Perhaps you can help.
