It is possible that either he did not know the answer or he did not want to give the correct answer for the reasons best known to him. I am compelled to call him a hypocrite, at least on this count.

The point I tried to make was that the knowledge claims of Vedas and Vedanta are bogus and spurious and that the later grafts on it and the spin of latter day theologians and apologists have been co-opted into its prevailing philosophy, which is uncritically accepted and revered by many Hindus and such delusional beliefs affect their perceptions of coming to terms with problems of social crisis and its resolution.

Switching to Shankara, even using the information we have at hand on the life and times at Shankara, this one episode is not enough of a sample to make a claim that Shankara did not do enough panchzkam take on the evils like untouchability or casteism. In Eashopanishad upon which he wrote an elaborate commentary, there are two shlokas bearing Nos. The Self Brahman is the eternal ocean of Supreme Panchaiam.

He could have exhorted upon his teaming bhaktas to work towards eliminating this practice.

Very interesting post and reference to this text. The perfect man of Self realization – Sir, I wish to know, whom are you addressing to get away from your esteemed presence apnchakam of hatred? Satish, It is not about me, Sir. Explanatory manthra shlokas for this from Shuka rahasyopanishad, preached by Lord Parama Shiva, to Shuka are. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed. However, when it comes to putting the principle into practice, the practitioners of AV are becoming drastically different and I think the change will continue.

We just give names so that we can develop an attachment to them in the form and name we like. Adi Shankaracharya’s Manisha Panchakam is one of the most famous in Indian religious and philosophical literature. Similarly very few others actively encourage their wards to achieve greater knowledge.


Maneesha Panchakam Of Shankaracharya

Shiva, in the guise of a chandala, wants an explanation or a reply from this great advaitin, according to whom, the entire Universe is the manifestation of Brahma and every thing is Brahman, why chandalas are so badly discriminated against and asked to manishaa away from vipras brahmans while on road? Human values are not new thinking to Indians.

That is why Ambedkar was so unconvincing. When we have the knowledge that ‘we are not the doers’ and we are not that experience the result removes the tension or curiosity of doing and the fear of having pancbakam experience the unwanted probably and when we realise that This World is not Permanenthence all the pleasures and pains that it possesses are also not permanent, when we know ,anisha the ‘Brahmam’ or the ‘Supreme God’ is the permanent one, all this with the help of a Sadguru, we have to and we will, naturally, turn towards the permanent one throwing away the temporary ones.

Can someone help me understand pannchakam the author of this post is trying to convey: Taking into account the points put forth earlier I would gladly like to provide citations 1. This is my perfect understanding. The modern research needs large money, westerners may be able to spend.

Pachakam, who is doing, what is done, good manish bad is to be decided with the help of manidha, 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 mabisha fruit bearer’, 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 responsible!

Surely there must be critics who do not buy into the monumental nonsense of this extraordinarily inane, conceited and delusive religious creed of AV, but have not come forward to unequivocally denounce and condemn it. Nowhere in these five verses are there references to the questions posed to him by the chandala.


So, if the author of this post wants to convey the failings of the acharya with reagrds to taking on the key social evil panxhakam untouchability, the evidence cited above does not cut it.

But Shakaracharya could not utter a single word against this practice even when Shiva posed this question to him. In that limited number of years, his calling was completely towards metaphysics,philosophy and the writing of commentaries on Upanishads, Brahma Sutras etc.

Chandala continues his query: According to the legend, Adi Shankaraachaarya, was on his way to the temple after finishing his bath. The outcaste then asked him some questions which form the substance of two verses which are a prelude to the main work. That is the meaning of varnashrama dharma. This is especially evident with the youth IMO. The pertinent question here is whether or not Shankara was condoning the then existing scheme of caste manishha. Substance I mansiha none other than a part and parcel of the Brahman The Absolute.

I think it is limited to what the Wachowski brothers sold. Each to his own. No other class except Brahmin and beneficiary of caste systems hangs around strongly with Vedas. Why would anyone pabchakam listened to them centuries ago? Panvhakam the form the soul, You are within me and similarly in every other being or animal or thing that I behold. He is as fallible or infallible as anyone else and he was obviously conditioned by the flavor of castiesm, as practiced during his time.

A person of perfect realization and wisdom due to his complete and clear understanding ever meditates in his mind on this supreme consciousness. In line with this tradition Sri Ranganathananda sees or rather invents great contribution by his Gurus Ramakrishna and Vivekananda.

Moreover in each of these warslower castes lost their lives more than the upper castes. The Acharya acts smart by telling something totally unrelated in bombastic words.

And so on… — rkk. The question was quite pertinent and pointed:
