In fact Dr.Mani Dravid SastrigaL who is perhaps unmatched in scholarship
had this to say:  It is enough for a mumukshu to take up just one text,
even a prakaraNa grantha like 'aparokshanubhuti' or 'Atmabodha' and
sincerely practice what has been taught there.  There is no need for
delving into countless texts, bhashyams, etc.

praNAms Sri Subbu prabhuji
Hare Krishna

I dont know in which context Sri Mani Dravid shAstrigaL said some 
prakaraNa grantha is enough for brahma jignAsa.  Is he intended here to 
say even for the sAdhaka-s who have vedAdhikAra, prakaraNa grantha would 
suffice without any veda shAstrAdhyayana??  If prakaraNa grantha-s 
themselves act as valid pramANa for the brahma jignAsa why there is so 
much emphasis on shAstras' antya prAmANyatva??  Kindly clarify.

Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
