THE SATRAS - II

Therefore, the longing of Jiva for Brahman is often shifted through the agency of inaya. Sankaradeva prescribes a mode by which Jivatma can purify itself. This mode is constant meditation of the narne of God. Sankaradeva has expressed the concept of ideal meditation in terms of a symbol throughout his works. Uddhava, the attendant disciple of Krishna is the symbol of Jivatma with its longing to merge
in the resplendent glory of Paramatma. According to Sankaradeva, through the constant meditation after the pattern of Uddhava, Jiva can be assured of its liberation from the bondage of birth.

Sankaradeva propagated his new religion at a time when ritualism was gaining ground with occasional intrusions of ultra- religious animism and occultism. In order to do away with the mushroom growth of gods, he was logically proceeding against the theological basis of polytheism. He emphasized the unity of essential Godhead.
