The gItA bhAShya gives some clues on his hostile attitude towards some
widely worshiped in shaiva, smArta and to some extent in vaiShNava
Yes, shankara says worshipping vinAyaka & mAtru gaNa (sapta mAtruka-s) is
'tAmasik' in nature. However, elaboration & further explanation of these
bhAshya vAkya-s by saMpradAyavit-s is that shankara refuting here only
tAntrika devata-s which have been worshipped by sAdhaka-s in vAma mArga.
But unfortunately no bhAshya support for this...but there are various
beautiful hymns on vinAyaka & devi attributed to shankara bhagavatpAda.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
