Example text

The soul is thus not autonomous and hence could not be fully liberated. (8) Omniscience and Omnipotence through Contact In order to avoid the problem of a lack of autonomy, the Sankrantivadin shifts his position slightly and maintains that it is as a result of contact with God’s omniscience and omnipotence that the soul too becomes omniscient and omnipotent. How does this avoid the problem of a lack of autonomy? In the previous example the water’s qualities were completely irrelevant; the heat in the water is explained entirely by the heat in the fire atoms.

26 Ramakantha’s refutation of this position consists primarily in arguing for the reality and permanence of the perceiver. His target is the Buddhist idea of a stream of momentary perceivers. 2). He first shows that the stream of con­ sciousness is plural, then argues that there is no self or perceiver beyond that. For such a thing can neither be perceived nor inferred. The only way it could be inferred would be if all we were aware of were objects of cognition (grahya, prakasya) and not the perceiver (grahaka, prakasaka) of these objects.

There are many things which share a common nature and yet do not have that as their common material cause. A brown pot and a brown butterfly both have brownness as a common nature, but they do not have the same brown thing as their common material cause. Cows all have cowness as their common universal, but that universal is not their material cause. e. to have existence as part of one’s nature, were equivalent to hav­ ing anvaya with existence, then problems would result for the Pancaratrika. Para Prakrti exists for the Pancaratrika, yet if it had anvaya with existence it could not be the Supreme Cause: it and all other things that had anvaya with existence would have to emerge from some greater material cause.
