Religious Knowledge Doesn’t Need To Be Transmitted Textually

Religious Knowledge Doesn’t Need To Be Transmitted Textually

Featured, Hinduism, Srijan Snippets, Videos
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tFbVwUqqlU&t=5s we are a civilization with enormous quest for knowledge. There is no religion like a Hindu religion. It is an entire set of stream of knowledge traditions. They are seeking the knowledge of inner and outer world. This is what we were and enormous cultural interchange between these areas. So fundamentally we are knowledge traditions, they are transmitted in many different ways, because knowledge doesn’t have to be transmitted textually. You teach your son how to ride bicycle.

So Kriya Pada, this classification is actually mentioned in the Kamika Agama itself and at the end of every chapter it says which Pada it belongs to. Now, Pada, by the way, is not ‘step’. It is ‘part’. So, all four, it’s not like you go step by step, not at all. These are 4 parts and all 4 have to be practiced. Carya is the lifestyle aspects. So for example, when should you take bath, why should you take bat

"Is Sankara Vedanta Scientific" This is the title of this debate that is being organised by Yuktivada Pathana Kendram. Vedanta in the paramarthika realm is not a subject for debate or discussion. However, at the worldly level, it is a subject that can certainly be a matter of debate, or discussion or argument. Anyway, will start by explaining the circumstances that brought Swami Chidanandapuri, the individual, to this event. A per...

Is Sankara Vedanta Scientific is everyone's question. I am making my views clear here. I am saying No, No, No! I am bound to explain why I said "No" thrice, in my second part. When you say Sankara Vedanta, there are two parts to it; Sankara and Vedanta. We have a fair idea of who Sankara is. Was there such a person called Sankara, did he live in the BC or in the 4th century AD? However, popular dates for his existence place him between 788 - 820 AD. Because stories about Sankara, his Sankara Digvijayam, stories of his victory, are like the Suras and Hadis in Islam. They cause embarassment. For a man to have
