The scenario of Indian philosophy has changed due to lack of understanding of the concepts of the Advaita Vedanta

There have been wrong interpretations made about the core content of Advaita Vedanta. This is due to a lack of understanding and misconceptions about the subject, says a researcher. Earlier Vedanta works were not available, even in translations. This prevented the scholars to present their views on the works of Advaita Vedantato the general public, says project research on Dvaita Vedanta.
Vidvan Srinidhi Pyati, Research Associate, PSM Bangalore “To negate the colonial interpretation, the modern scholars, especially the American scholars have tried to interpret the content in a different meaning. They served their agenda by emphasizing on Marxism.”
The scholars are presently focusing on the translation of the Vedas in order to present it rightly in front of society. The western countries have a wrong interpretation with regard to the content of Vedanta. The clarification is done to review the subject, says the Vice-Chancellor. Students should be welcomed in such a platform of learning and make use of every opportunity.
Dr.A.V.Nagasampige, Director- PPSM, Bengaluru “The western thinkers have criticized each and everybody. All the vedantas have failed in understanding Buddhism in its true nature.”
Mesquita, a historian, argues in her works Madhavacharyas works is simply fictitious which does not have enough substance, says a researcher.
Vidvan Subodh Bhat, Vice-Chancellor, KSU sites an example of the clarified interpretation “ Connection of work that Madva has created and written in an English script with di-critical marks but nothing beyond that to actually argue that Madva’s work was his own creation

The need to validate the interpretation from the right source is ongoing in order to avail of the right form of philosophy and literature.
