Sri Ranganathananda admits that the possibility of chandalas of those days having knowledge of Vedanta is difficult to accept.

It is an observation. For each there is a certain amount of logical explanation and beyond a point, logic and intellect cannot help comprehend the Brahman.

That being the case, how does the author know for sure that the acharya may not have publicly denounced untouchability, post this episode involving panchamam chandala? Instead he gave evasive replies and off the mark.

ADVAITA VISISTADVAITA DVAITA: Manisha Panchakam – Sri Sri Shankaracharya

That which divine glow replenishes through the three stages of ‘awakenness’,’dream’ and ‘deep slumber’ that which is present in all from the ‘Divine’ to the smallest creature like an ‘ant’, that is ‘I’, not just this ‘visible form’ to the naked eye Let us examine them.

But we can infer from what is available, which is what this article did. The rejection of discrimination based on jati is implicit in the philosophy. It is said that in these five verses Shankara brings out the essence of Advaita Vedanta. It might not have completely abolished untouchability but the growth and severity of the practice might have come down considerably over the centuries. Then present day ethics have been co-opted into AV, that too ethics born out of a scientific worldview.

Again in extant Bhagad Gita 6: With this as the sole purpose let us see the composition giving less importance to the stories around it.

Manisha Panchakam – Arsha Bodha Center

Rationalist activists are not leaving current problems as they are. A minute fraction of this Bliss Supreme is adequate to satisfy the Indra and other celestials. You probably tend to disagree unless proven. Let us be proud of them! We conveniently tend to believe what we agree upon and question what we do not agree upon. Notify me of followup comments via e-mail. This is my perfect conviction.


Then why even bother with AV when there exist other more readily accessible, not to mention equivalent if not better at the minimum alternatives? Also please do use google to panchkam our forums and this site.

From these shlokas one can not make out what exactly was his perception of untouchablility. You are all over the place. I am The Divine, This Universe is filled with The Divine, All This external and peripheral is ‘connived’ by me as ‘eternal’ and ‘permanent’ due to my ‘innosence’ under the influence of the Thrigunas, whoever possesses this blissful, eternal and pious knowledge is my ‘Master’, irrespective of his birth as a low-caste chandala or as a well-read brahmin!

So the so called panchakkam dont need worldly knowledge to speak about the Truth. Great soul, why is this indeed hatred inducing illusion of discrimination that one is learned and a Brahmin and that the other one is an outcaste and is untouchable! Brahmins never allowed chandalas to come near them, there panhakam absolutely no opportunities for them to get education. Can someone help me understand what the author of this post is trying to convey: So pancahkam was a indirect attack on caste establishment, but elite class compromised all, but not the social division.

Who are the responsibility of that case? My firm understanding manjsha that the great one who inculcates this concept is the real preceptor. AV has fooled even most of the rationalist intellectuals like Ambedkar who saw in some of its parts what he chose to term as BrahmaismNehru manieha surprise of surprises!

Such a person, whosoever he may be, and no matter at all, his feet are worthy to be worshiped by the Indra and all other gods. Vijayan TA January 31, at 8: And what about the other poor people in India who are not lower castes?

Maneesha Panchakam Of Shankaracharya

He lived for not more than 34 years give or take a pahchakam. Shankaracharya, while returning from The Ganges after having a ,anisha dip, in Varanasi, was encountered by a low-caste,chandala, whom the disciples of Adi Shankaracharya ordered to get aside, give way to their Guru.

Jesus Christ is the only true God! The outcaste then asked him some questions which form the substance of two verses which are a prelude to the main work. There were others also, manisna Sankara as we have seen but none of them really had any political clout.

It instead placed emphasis on gunas, as if people are just magically born with the right gunas a logical certainty if karma is true. Rationalists are not just criticizing ancients and their works. Secondly, who is doing, what is done, good or bad is to be decided with the help of ‘budhi’, or ‘intellect’ or the ‘pragnanam’, which is the ‘Brahmam’, ‘Pragnanam Brahma’, and we can not take it conveniently and do what ever is convenient and profitable, in what ever we like and say that ‘ I am not the doer or the fruit manisya, it has to be decided utilising the ‘budhi’, even then if we deceive our selves, there is the ‘antharyami or the pragnanam brahma, watching, not only he, The Pancha Bhuthas, The Sun, The Moon and Fire, these are all the witnesses for what we do, how we do and why we do, we can not escape from the responsibility, even if we become too smart and say it is not I, but the God doing through me, so I am not manieha

Manisha Panchakam

In this fifth and last shloka, Adi Shankaracharya goes on to present the Phala Shruthi, or the Fruit or result of attaining the knowledge of the Manisha Panchaka Sthothra! Could the all knowing Sri Sri Shankara who is the foremost profounder of Advaita Vedanta react thus seeing a Chandala? This learned and holy man, though theoretically very well versed in the Atma Jnaananot recognizing the true nature of the persons coming into him, uttered the words, you….

The modern research needs large money, westerners may be able to spend. It naturally implies, if he could not offer a viable explanation he must work towards eliminating this social wrong by putting all the weight of his personality.

Gurubhakti is a highest spiritual trait and as such a bhakta or a chamacha should take every opportunity to extol his Guru in finest words even if those are blatant falsehood! In the early stages, this concept of an illusory world is difficult pachakam comprehend or accept for the seeker and would be driven to inaction.

Shankara appears to have not understood advaita himself, but had he, then the vexed caste system would’ve been dead and gone long ago. Did Shankaracharya achieve this? Nowhere in these panchakaam verses are there references to the questions posed to him by the chandala.
