Discussion-2. "Swami Adi Sri Sankarachrya's  debate  with  Sri  Bhaskara  on  this"  .....



Here  Swami Sri Adi Sankaracharya avargal, has to debate  with  Sri Bhaskara  since  he  is  one  believes  ( samuccayavada)  that  vidys  and  avidya  are  of  equal  importance  as  practices  for  a  seeker,  and  each  works  independently  of  the  other  with  neither  of  them  subordinate  to  the  other.


This  is  not  necessary :  We  need  not  consider  both  'vidya' and'avidya'  as  independent  of  each  other,  with  neither  of  them  subordinate  to  the  other.


It  is  sufficient  if  we  consider  them  as  an  integral  whole  with  a  mutual  relationship  as  "anga  and  angi."





They  must  be  considered   as  serially  connected :  Selfless  dedicated  work (avidya)  prepares  one  for  contemplation,  and  when  through  contemplation 'Vidya' ( Jnanam )  is  fulfilled  in  direct  apprehension  of  the  'Self ,'   thereafter  the  'Perfect  One'  undertakes  'Karmam'  as  a  sacred  satisfying  fulfilment  of  his  realisation  and  spiritual  experience.




When  such  great  souls    ----  "Buddha,  Christ,  Vivekananda,  and  others"   ----  work,  the  joy  of  life,  the  beauty  of  existence,  the  very  values  of  life  in  the  socety  are  revitalised  and  reoriented.


Thus  cultural  revival  takes  place......
