Sample text

But this difference could be lessened by maintaining that the source of rivers can be traced back to rainfall, which comes from clouds, which come from the ocean. Introduction 33 But for Ramakantha selves do not have anvaya and yet they are qual­ itatively identical to each other: all fundamental aspects of their nature they have in common with all other selves. And despite not having anvaya with existence, they do of course exist in his view. So we can conclude that Ramakantha conceptualises anvaya differently.

What we need, but what Ramakantha has not supplied, is a non-circular definition of anvaya that can allow us to know whether things have anvaya even if we do not know whether they are effects of one material cause. Ramakantha has achieved a definition that establishes the pervasion be­ tween possession of anvaya and possession of a single material cause; the hetu is no longer inconclusive (anaikantika). But we cannot know whether it is established (siddha) in a particular proof-subject (paksa) unless wc already know that the things in question are effects of a single material cause; and in that case the inference is redundant.

See Figure 7. It is the source of everything in the universe: both sentient souls and in­ sentient matter. Hence souls are temporary transformations of Para Prakrti: they arise from it and they disappear back into it at liberation. The search for liberation is thus, on this view, a search for a return to one’s source, something that is not true of any of the other twenty positions apart from that of Transformationist Vedanta. Indeed the closeness of this position to the parinamavada outlined in the previous section will be apparent.
