Adishankara Charithram Vol. I, Book 1 , Chapter 2. Sh

loka 3 & 4

 

न क्वापि हरिनामानि श्रूयन्ते हि धरातले

सर्वत्र माया मायेति वाद एव प्रवर्तते

Na Kvaapi Harinamani Shruyantehi Dharatale

Sarvatra Maya Mayeti Vada Evapravartate

 

Kechit Paramavaideeka Vimukha Harikirtane

Nanakarmani Kurvanti Kevalam Karmavadinah.

 

Nowhere on this earth was heard the chanting of the Holy Names of Lord Hari. Everywhere the repetition of the concocted and untenable idea of Maya (Illusion) alone was heard.


Some who followed the principles of Mimamsa were deeply rooted in the Vedas and considered Karma to be all powerful. Hence they engaged in various rituals ignoring the chanting of the Divine Names of Lord Shri Hari.
