The way I see it, while Srishti-Drishti is good as a philosophy to explain
the world, need for Moksha etc. especially to those in Pravritti marga, a
Mumukshu will invariably have to travel through Drishti-Sristi before
reaching the ultimate state of Jnana (which is Ajati).

Thus, while SDV appeals to mundane and the Jivanmuktas remain established
in Ajati-V, it is the Mumukshu's for whom DSV has greatest relevance.
