My fundamental question here is can our senses cognize an object as object without any attributes of that object??  What exactly does it mean nishprakArika vrutti??  When I see a pot, I would get the 'pot' vrutti, how can this 'pot' jnAna would arise in mind without any attributes of that 'pot'??  Don’t you think the term 'pot' itself is an attribute (nAma rUpAtmaka vishesha) of the clay??  Is there anything that can be called an 'object' without recognizing / perceiving its attributes / vishesha-s?  Don’t you think it is as good as saying:  I have the nishprakArika(attributeless) jnAna of 'necklace', when the 'necklace' itself is vishesha / attribute / nAma rUpa of the 'gold' ??  

And in dAshtrAntika, can we say this nishprakArika vrutti itself is brahma jnAna that is attributeless jnAna of brahman?? Since brahman is ultimately in its svarUpa nirguNa, nirvishesha, nirvikAra !! 

Sorry to say that I am getting stuck in the basic level itself.  

Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
