View of the Shastras[edit]

The "View of the Shastras" section mentions info about the beliefs of followers and not specifically Nimbarka, and so I am removing it. The info is here for reference. --Shruti14 t c s 23:55, 20 April 2008 (UTC)


Members of the Nimbārka Sampradāya, the disciplic tradition founded by Śrī Nimbārkācārya, tend to lean toward the date as accepted in the Vedic Scriptures. There are many sources for this date, but primarily the focus tends to be on the Puranas. The members of that tradition suggest the fact that many verses of the Puranas, which have been evolving since their creation, have disappeared in the modern versions that are available.[1]


POV[edit]

The "Life" section has some minor POV issues. --Shruti14 t c s 23:59, 20 April 2008 (UTC)

Krishna supremacy ref to verify and complete[edit]

'In the Nimbarka tradition, there is Nimbarka's Dasa-sloki and its commentary by Giridhar Prapannam published as "The Theology of Nimbarka" by Gita Khurana, Vantage Books, NY. It describes not only that Krishna is superior to Vishnu, but that the two-armed Krishna is superior to the four-armed Krishna form, from a rasa standpoint.' Anyone can verify and complete this ref?
