Example text

By permitting Kṛṣṇa to say of himself that he is brahman, Śaṅkara wants to blast through our inescapable limitations, for only in that way can we begin to see both Kṛṣṇa and brahman. ’40 Of course, text-historically, it is difficult to know precisely why Śaṅkara seems to move back and forth between different articulations of the relationship between brahman and Kṛṣṇa (as īśvara). ) The textual analysis is wide-ranging and highly instructive, but Hacker’s conclusion does not quite bear out his analysis.

Aṅkara therefore asserts the greatest intimacy possible between us and another – that of identity. Dull-wittedly, people interpret the physical presence of Kṛṣṇa in that time as a manifestation of the hidden God, an interpretation in whose narrative sequence the ontological distance of otherness between divine and human is always preserved. But the God who is in excess of both visible and invisible being (as we have already noted in the first section) is the supreme construal of selfhood, for self is nothing to become known – as in the third-personal story of a manifest God hitherto hidden – but that which is always and unquestionably established for itself.

One concerns loving devotion (bhakti) towards the self-declared God who is found in the person of Kṛṣṇa, and is interesting because of the way Śaṅkara takes such passages in the Gītā and makes them point to something else, even while never denying devotion and the complex of ritual life. The other concerns a theme familiar to us by now, which is the invocation of Kṛṣṇa’s selfhood that Śaṅkara sees as key to the rationality of spiritual life, what we might call, in a cumbersome way, a gnoseo-phenomenology of consciousness.
