It needs to be borne in mind that what we have today is a highly truncated version of the Shrutis.

>  and with the available very limited shruti resources and commentaries on it,  we have concluded some very important  Upanishad siddhAnta and arguing shrutis' parama siddhAnta is not dvaita and  only Advaita.  mahAshruti is the unknown shruti  to other schools of thought  but very authentic one for tattvavAdins to propagate dvaita siddhAnta..how far we, the vedAntins,  are liberal enough to accept that Sri Anandateertha brought back the lost shruti directly from vaikunta?? As I said earlier, in one particular shruti we have the list of brahma jnAni-s but since it is short of names of jnAni-s that we accept as jnAni-s, can we,  by citing this truncated reason,  explain this list is incomplete and this shruti itself is partial and not complete and there is some more names in the lost portion of this shruti??  I think with this way of perception, anyone can push any pet theory in the name of shruti and claim that their siddhAnta might be / will be there in the non-available portion of shruti-s.  How can we sort out this problem ??  

Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
