Namaste Latha-ji:
Why do you think that Acharya encompassed "strii, baala, andha & jaDa" in one group ?

hari om
yes, thanks to those who believe that 'tvam' in "tat tvam
asi" is all inclusive and hence have an egalitarian view.
when i wrote my comment, i was only remembering incidences when some
people used to equate stree with baala, jada, andha (just becoz sri shankara
has made that sentence in one of the stanzas of sri dakshinamurthy stotra) and
used to belittle a woman who was aspiring to realize the ultimate. the word
'people' in my comment does not include people from this List :))

People argue on what they want to agrue. Karma is kama driven.  Arguing is
karma too!

Our scriptures clearly say 'Tat Tvam Asi'.  It would not have said it
if you didn't have the right to know.  'Tvam' does not exclude
anyone.  It is an unconditional 'Tvam'!
