Can I put it a bit differently. Without developing the Sattva guna it really not possible to appreciate Advaita properly.

Namaste Sri Jaldhar
You missed the point. History cannot be changed . All people
misunderstand Advaita except the pure and intelligent. Without Citta
Suddhi it is impossible to understand Advaita. Without Samskaras and
Nitya Karma it is impossible to get Citta Suddhi.
