Regarding the example
itself, is it not that, had Vishnumitra had
perceived devadatta earlier (A - during
childhood days when they used to
play :) and
after many years ( grown up), seeing devadatta again (B)
not knowing A = B, when yaGYadatta says
- this is that devadatta ,
happens as detailed above ?
My question specifically is -
if Vishnumitra is seeing devadatta for the
very first time in his life and
yaGYadatta says - this is that devadatta,
does the above discarding
vRRitti of the type bhAga-tyAga, since there is no
context of 'that' as far as Vishnumitra
is concerned ?
Ravi Kiranji - PraNAms.
The point Pranipataji was making is the equation involves one Devadatta from memory and one from direct perception. Memory need not be based on previous perception - it can be based on shabda - or hear say about Devadatta by his friend Yagnadatta.
The contradictory attributes of this and that devadatta are there and bhaaga tyaaga is involved in unitary knowledge
