AchArya's prapa~nchasAra : Is it shruti, smR^iti or purANa?
In shankara's(what is our list? :-)) lalitA trishatI bhAShya we have a quote
from the bhuvaneshvarI kalpa which apparaently does not belong to the category
of shruti smriti purana
>smruti-s, purANa-s and itihasa-s have been considered as pramANa granTha-s in
>the advaita vedAnta >tradition.
The purANa-s have lots of material lifted from the tantra-s sometimes without
even a change in the shlokas.
Furthermore, you are aware that the nirNaya sindhu which you probably know is a
comprehensive work on dharma shAstra quotes freely from the tantra-s like
rudrayAmala and other ancient tAntrika works along various smriti-s & purANa-s?
Or why not think about the statement in the devI bhAgavata where it clearly says
that some tantra-s can be adopted?
