‘Sankararum-Vaiṇavamum’ – Or vimarśanam

An Tamil article titled ‘சங்கரரும்-வைணவமும்’ – ஓர் விமர்சனம் is available in this location:

The article points out the mistaken ideas the author of the Tamil booklet ‘Sankararum-Vaiṇavamum’ has put forward to claim a relationship between Shankaracharya and vaiśṇavism. Since it is in Tamil, the present article is also in the same language.

ANTARYĀMĪ IS NIRGUNA BRAHMAN – SHANKARA

Antaryāmī is Nirupādhika Brahman – Shankara

In the bhāṣya shown below, Shankara characterizes the ‘antaryāmī’ as non-different from the nirupādhika Brahman, also known as Nirguna Brahman:

Bṛhadāraṇyaka Upaniṣad Bhāṣya  4.3. introduction:
यथा रज्जूषरशुक्तिकागगनादिषु सर्पोदकरजतमलिनत्वादि परोपाध्यारोपणनिमित्तमेव, न स्वतः, तथा ; निरुपाधिको निरुपाख्यः नेति नेतीति व्यपदेश्यः साक्षादपरोक्षात्सर्वान्तरः आत्मा ब्रह्म अक्षरम् अन्तर्यामीप्रशास्ता औपनिषदः पुरुषः विज्ञानमानन्दं ब्रह्मेत्यधिगतम् ।
Translation by Swami Madhavananda:
// It suffers transmigration owing to adventitious
limiting adjuncts, as for instance the appearance of a
rope, a desert, a mother-of-pearl, and the sky as a
snake, water, silver and blue respectively, is due to the
superimposition of foreign elements, not intrinsically.
But devoid of the limiting adjuncts, it is known as indefinable, to be described only as ‘Not this, not this,’ the Brahman that is immediate and direct, the self that is within all, the Immutable, the Internal Ruler, the mighty Ruler, the Being who is to be known only through the Upaniṣads, Knowledge, Bliss and Brahman.//
