Thanking all for responses with Sruti statements. There is also one more
angle. If Vaadiraaja is saying Ninda Sabdas are aimed at Brahman he must
also accept all names are aimed at Brahman because of Jeeva Aikya.
Therefore all good names like Bhagavan, Ishwara, Deva, Devi, Raajaa,
Samrat, Sarvajna are also His names only. They are also in Sruti. Therefore
when all names are His only what is the defect here?
OR we may say all names are for Brahman but for Saguna Brahman. There is no
word for Nirguna Brahman because no word can reach and describe Nirguna. If
there is any word It cannot be Nirguna.
