According to Ramana Maharshi, "For the Self-realized,
there are no others to teach."

It is only we, the ignorant, who see Shankaracharya
and Shuka as teachers. It is only the ignorant who see
"others". Period.

For this and other differences between the teachings
of Sri Ramakrishna and the philosophy of advaita, Sri
Ramakrishna is generally not accepted as an authority
on this list.

Interesting, but not unanswered! The answer is that
there is no duality for the jIvanmukta.

Srimathe narAyanAya namaha

Dear Members,

I am looking for a good translation (either in English or Kannada) or
any commentaries on the purva mimAmsa, specifically the rig veda
samhitam and other early canonical texts.

I would also like to know if any acharya from the Advaita Darsanam
has written a commentary on the rig veda samhitam other than
Sayanacharya of the Vijayanagar Kingdom.
