*shruteH gIH* means “the word of the Veda”.
Is that so? Does the Veda itself say that in the path of jnAna there is also bhakti? Where does it say so?
In Kaivalya Upanishad. It occurs in Krishna Yajur Veda.
The beginning itself of its teaching says
meaning, By shraddhA, bhakti and dhyAna-yoga (reach brahman).
It is these words of Upanishad that formed the basis of the Acharya’s own statements.
