I was unaware of this prohibition by bhAskararAya. Could you kindly point
to the section in LS commentary where this is mentioned? To clarify, this
is not to question that such a prohibition exists, but to myself understand
the context better, since we Havyakas do chant in our own sampradAya
without shrIvidyA initiation. There are some orthodox maThas that
proactively teach such chanting in abhiyAnas and promote pArAyaNa too.
