Theory Of Error As Per Madhvacharya Philosophy

Error is the opposite of knowledge. Different schools of Hindu philosophy have discussed the nature of error and its occurrence with great interest. Jayatirtha has expounded theory of error in Madhvacharya philosophy after showing inadequacies in the theories of other schools. The Dvaita or “dualist” school of Hindu Vedanta philosophy originated in 13th-century South India with Sri Madhvacharya (Madhva). The Dvaita theory of error is known as abhinava – anyatha khyati. According to this theory, whenever there are any defects in either the subjective or the objective conditions of knowledge, error occurs. The appearance of unreal as real and of real as unreal is illusion. In bhranti (error), the non-existent is present as existent and the existent is presented as non-existent. The Dvaita school subscribes neither to the view of the wholesale unreality of the constituents of an error nor to the view that one real object appears as another real object existing elsewhere.

Kuravanji Nadagam – Dance Drama Popular In Tamil Nadu

Kuravanji Nadagam is woven around the theme of a woman falling in love with a king or a minister or a local deity. The term Kuravanji denotes a Tamil work, Prabandham, which falls in the category of Nadaga-t-Tamil. Kuravanji Nadagam is traced to the tribal vanavasi (woman) and the kuratti predicting the fulfillment of the heroine’s longing to be with her lover. She speaks in glorious terms of her tribe and of the accuracy with which her tribesman could foretell the events to come. Originally, this dramatic presentation was known as Kuzhava Natakam. The kuravanji type of composition takes its place between the classical Bhagavata mela nadagam and the rustic Terukkuttu. This folk art has been elevated to classical heights by adopting the theme relating to a temple, or the love towards the Lord or even the life of a devotee. The earliest of them is Tirukurrala Kuravanji of Tirukuta Rasappa Kaviryar, which gives a vivid picture of Tirucourralisvarar, the Lord of Kutralam, the

What Is God Experience?

I had longed for God. I had given long years of service to my pupils for I was a teacher of youth - and, yet, the Truth was not revealed to me. I sought my Teacher, J.Krishnamurti, and when we were alone on the hills with the snow-clad peaks of Kanchenjunga in front of us, I ventured to ask him to tell me of God. At first he was silent, and then, suddenly, he spoke to me. "Look there and tell me what you feel". I gazed at the glory of the entire range of the eternal snowy mountains, and told him what I saw. He seemed disappointed, and I too knew that I had not understood, for, my heart and mind were burdened with many anxieties and much sorrow. Years passed, and I still aspired and searched and once again I sought my Teacher, and asked him if he could not remove the dark cloud of ignorance from my heart and mind. We were walking on the Adyar bridge and he explained to me with infinite patience the nature of God-experience. "You are perfectly well, are you not?"
