This post is the author's conclusion on the correct manner with which to proceed for true knowledge to be attained:

Bhakti marg only leads to gyana, once gyana is attained bhakti disappears.

The mind analyses factual information gathered by the senses, that is the only way to proceed in the quest for the development of awareness which one needs to have at its peak of perfection for karma to manifest itself as Sanatan dharma. This perfection is achieved by losing all ones attachments of the material and spiritual realms. At this point the mind becomes a mahatman and the person becomes a purnavatar. He or she is then known as a Purushottama.

Rita Gupta posted on Facebook Sanatan Dharma- Ask a Hindu: Early parts of Ved talk about Varna system. Later parts (Upanishadas) talk primarily about Atma which goes beyond body.

Should not Varna system have end after the development of Vedant ?

Shantanu Panigrahi

Dharma never ends. Vedanta shows how dharma is perfected, so atma idea was an extension of Vedic Verna system to fine tune it.

Rita Gupta

Shantanu Panigrahi I didn't get it. Vedant teaches Atma is more important than body, body should be down played Instead Varna system which seems to be based on nature and karma becomes rigid and birth based. Body is birth based not Atma.

Shantanu Panigrahi

Rita Gupta In Vishista-advaita Vedanta, there is a balance, a rajasic balance to be struck between the body and the mind so karma and dharma are both needed for Sanatan dharma. We rely on the atman for this balance.

Shantanu Panigrahi Bhagawan Krishna says, He is the basis of Sanatan Dharm.

Adhyay 14, Shloka 27

Brahmano hi Pratishtha Aham Amratasya Avyayasya Cha.

Shashvatasya Cha Dharmasya Sukhasya Aikantikasya Cha.

Shantanu Panigrahi

Rita Gupta Through the mind losing one's attachments and thus becoming from a jivatman to a manatman a person is accessing the source of Sanatan dharma constantly focussed on Sri Krishna yet aloof from Him at the same time. It is a yogic endeavour that one nonchalantly, spontaneously and unpremeditately does in full surrender to truth as it dawns in the mahataman. The karma is then perfected as Sanatan dharma. At least this how I conduct myself each moment of the day and I have learnt that from experience of the precise relationship between me and God over the past 23 years of trial and error experimentation. So Sri Krishna is still the basis of Sanatan dharma in this manner for me. I do not request Him to come to me anymore, but I do serve Sanatan dharma as the puja implicit worship.


14 June 2021 Update:

However, in considering God and Me I also ask: should we rely on God for our daily living conditions, or does He wish us to be free and independent.

My experience this morning on the 14 of June 2021 is that we must not rely on God no matter what level of bhakti we have. For bhakti changes with time and when the chips are down one must not fall into the trap of surrendering to God as the last straw that will break the camel’s back.

In following Him constantly from 1999 to 2004 initially I ended up in the mental hospital suffering from paranoia and delusions and had to be kept there for 3 months before the Mental Health Tribunal would release me back into the Community but still under supervision as an outpatient of the Community Mental Health Team Services of the United Kingdom. I went on to develop deep depression from that episode, and became an atheist. However, under the belief that I had visions in 1997-1998 and utterances I wished to test whether those were God  imparted into my psyche if this was the last thing that I did in my life. So when I recovered my poise and got myself a steady job to get on with life, I relapsed into surrender to find out if God had truly come into my life for a mission yet to unfold. This led to me being sent back into the mental hospital in 2008 for another spell of seclusion from the Community. That time I was only kept in the hospital for one month and when I came out I decided that I should approach the question of God and me from a different angle. This was to start learning the meaning of life by interacting with people in Forums, in employment, in setting up my own Blog, and developing my knowledge from scratch. In 2014 however when I got banned from the Forums I found that these had limited use in the search for the truth, and I reverted to seeking instructions from God using my digital clock for checking for messages from Him.

I undertook my work of developing my material objectives to restore my reputation as a sane person from that point onwards and this has continued to this day with the creation of numerous websites and litigation against the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom at the Central London County Court under Claim No Ee5YM660, that took over from an earlier Claim HQ17X01773 at the Queens Bench Division of the High Court against Kent Police for protecting criminals who harassed and obstructed justice in their dealings with me. The outcome of this litigation in which I am demanding £100 million in damages and compensation from the Prime Minister directly or from the UK Treasury is due out soon, perhaps on 21 June 2021.

Since I abandoned the idea of Brahmoadvaita Vedanta a year ago and went on to outline the framework of Vishista-advaita Vedanta, under which I conduct myself nonchalantly, spontaneously and unpremeditatedly to seek my destiny on the assumption that everything in the universe is preordained and preorchestrated, this morning I am still inclined to say to myself that this is only a theory. Nothing is proven. Satyameva Jayate and Dharma Rakshati Rakshita is not proven in this manner of seeking to perform sanatan dharma. So before I am incarcerated for a third time in a mental hospital or worse in a prison, I am giving up my search for the truth of the meaning of life as a misadventure, for liberation is the crucial objective that I seek. I must be free, independent, and liberated in what remains of my life at the age of 64. So I do not rely on God directly or indirectly to help my in my material living conditions, whether or not He does wish us humans to be free and independent. I have a life. I intend to lead it to the best of my ability to become as prosperous in security with a risk-averse attitude from now on. There is no bhakti left for me. It was all part of my satya-advaita yoga that has brought me to this point.
