Knowledge, pedagogy, and practice

The fundamental intention of the #Bhagavad #Gita is to heal an inner division, writes @hari_ravikumar https://t.co/5AjtsdLa7A
Just because different people view the same thing in different ways doesn’t imply that the subject under consideration is flawed. In the case of the Gita, the very fact that so many people have interpreted it in subtly different ways over time indicates that they have all found the text rather interesting. They have found it worthwhile to spend their time and understand the text in their own way. 
Further, the interpretation of a text doesn’t happen in a vacuum – there is a tradition of interpretation and anyone who has written a classical commentary adheres to the tradition. This is different from the commentary of someone like Gandhi, who interpreted the Gita based on his own whims without a strong grounding in the traditional commentaries (or in Hinduism, for that matter).

Theoretical knowledge is not sufficient for a person to become anacharya. He must acquire knowledge (praptisangraha), he must understand pedagogy (paddhativyavasthapana), and he must practice the message (jivananvayaanushthana). This is the reason why an acharya’s words can be taken as truth. Their words truly have value.

Sri Aurobindo gave a symbolic interpretation of Rig Veda pertaining to higher zones of consciousness. Further, he tried to fit disparate ideas into a neat Ontological framework. Vedic metaphors have their own poetic/taxonomic value but finally they have to be understood in terms of how Sri Aurobindo explains them, for convenience's sake. [TNM55]
