Anup: One clarification to my earlier mail. sudarshan>> the "Eternal" category is Not a self contradiction. sudarshan>> Consider it as an "irreducible axiom" which is essential to explain further sudarshan>> Upanisadic concepts, but this axiom itself is not contradicted by anything else sudarshan>> we know. (perception, inference, Sabda) What I should have said here is: Consider it as an "irreducible axiom" which helps to explain other Upanisadic concepts, but whatever is posited due to this axiom (resultant or consequent concepts) are not self contradictory. PS: This is all with a view to coherently interpret all of the Ideas in the Upanisads without exclusive bias towards any one Aphorism, thereby presenting one non-contradictory corpus of thought.
