well, neoadvaita has its purpose too.

lets see.
For example, a "nowaday swami" tells "You are That" to, lets say, 5 000 000 people.
Out of those 5 000 000 people there is a chance that one or two will be mature enough to catch and experience what is being said.  :D

Neo advaita makes it simple but it is not workable.  What Beloved
Abstract posted is not neo advaita, but simple Ajata Vada.  Bhagavan
Ramana was not realized until He reached 16 and then the advaitic
realization came through death experience, which lasted for about
15 to 20 minutes.  In fact, for sometime, He was thinking that it was a pleasant disease!  He says this in Sri Arunachala Ashtakam, Verse 1.  The feeling of maruL, that is the feeling that it was a pleasant disease, disappeared when He 'saw' Arunachala.  He says "How
can I say, I saw.  There is no 'seer' but only the non-moving Self.
If I could not say 'I saw', how can I also say 'I could not see'?  Who
can explain this right from the beginning? You have explained this
by your state of non-movement?   

We are all the Self.  But it takes efforts, a lot of them, to realize that we are the Self.  We are for long long time struggling with the
various manifestations of non-Self.  The Buddha attained it at the
age of 50 or so.  Bhagavan Ramana attained it at the age of 16.
The devotional history in Tamil says only Tiru Jnana Sambandha attained at the age of 3. 

Well written Beloved Abstract.

Arunachala Siva.
