So far, I have not gone through a post atleast on niama bhadha sanyasa for
sthri shudradi vyaktis. My doubt is, whether a proper initiation into
sanyasa ashrama is a must for these vyaktis?
I dont think so, for them itihAsa purANa etc. are the pramANa-s and they
can attain the self realization by following the japa, upavAsa,
devatArAdhana etc. which are not shAstra viruddha. Shankara says in sUtra
bhAshya (3-4-38) : vidhurAdee nAma viruddhaiH purushamAtra saMbandhibhiH
japOpavAsa devatArAdhanAdibhiH dharma visheshaiH anugrahO vidyAyAH
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
