Sri Kalyan ji,

Calm down. No this is not what I mean :) - the point is  --no one is above
shastras, but there are always exceptions and exception is not a rule.

Can this logic be applied to Sringeri Jagadguru too. Is he exception or is
he not? I am not in a position to comment on this issue.

But I would not question you as you have already given your opinion -
follow smriti and shruti is to be restricted to Brahmins. Point Noted.
Thank you.

I am also studying the Br. Up. 1.3.8-17 and beyond. It looks like there is
slight difference in the translation of Gita Press (Sanskrit-Hindi) and
English one by Swami Madhavananda of Advaita Ashram. Maybe other members
can shed some light on the translation by comparing it with original

Hari OM

Please do remind me if I too forget to delete old responses or my long
