Unfortunately I do not know how such statements can be made unless we know
what exactly Sringeri mutt follows. When you consider SSS is aligning
against Sringeri mutt, the Acharyas of the mutt do not think so. The direct
disciple of H.H. Chandrasekhara Bharati Mahaswamigal openly visited the
place and helped SSS cause for propagating his writings. So what is the
Not only Sringeri mutt, but other mutts also join to help SSS.
Sankaracharyas are sanyasis practising the tradition everyday. They can
accept SSS in spite of the differences. They breathe Advaita, it is a full
time work. For us in the list, this is more of a learning and not physical
practice. Truly speaking, we should not be discussing so much Vedanta if we
are not following Sanyasa Ashrama now. That is what H.H. Chandrasekhara
Bharati Mahaswamigal would say. By listening to HH, we would become fit to
talk Vedanta eventually.
May be you know something about SSS we all do not know, which is what is
causing all these. Suppose everyone here accepts to your statement that SSS
does not understand Advaita, would the problem be resolved? Advaita is more
of an experience which is why it will stand the test of time. It is just not
intellectual debates all the time. Please do not get personal, at least
others do not see any valid reason for this.
Sorry if I have overstated anything...
