TEXT 131

sarva-veda-sūtre kare kṛṣṇera abhidhāna
mukhya-vṛtti chāḍi’ kaila lakṣaṇā-vyākhyāna


sarva-veda-sūtre — in all the aphorisms of the Vedānta-sūtra; kare — establishes; kṛṣṇera — of Lord Kṛṣṇa; abhidhāna — explanation; mukhya-vṛtti — direct interpretation; chāḍi’ — giving up; kaila — made; lakṣaṇā — indirect; vyākhyāna — explanation.


“In all the Vedic sūtras and literatures, it is Lord Kṛṣṇa who is to be understood, but the followers of Śaṅkarācārya have covered the real meaning of the Vedas with indirect explanations.


It is said:

vede rāmāyaṇe caiva purāṇe bhārate tathā
ādāv ante ca madhye ca hariḥ sarvatra gīyate

“In the Vedic literature, including the Rāmāyaṇa, Purāṇas and Mahābhārata, from the very beginning (ādau) to the end (ante ca), as well as within the middle (madhye ca), only Hari, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, is explained.”
