[Advaita-l] Veda as source of dharma.

The point to be noted is that Taittiriya itself prescribes
आचारश्चैव साधूनाम् as pramana. This is the basis for
Apastamba giving first place to instruction of
dharmajnas and not vedajnas. It is very clear
that he gives only secondary importance to the Vedas.
Any way we are following only sistachara . The saying is
आचारप्रभवोधर्मः। Sistachara gets codified later as smriti.
None of us are tending tretagnis.
Thinking that we are following vaidika dharma by doing
sandhyavandana is oversimplification.
