We are assuming that a sthitaprajna ( the word sthiraprajna has also appeared ) will be the right guru. It is not necessarily so. Guru has other requirements too such as he should have the compassion, knowledge of the art of teaching and patience to teach the disciples.

Perhaps the stitaprajna verses follolwing this (2:55-2:70) are the answer.
Do all modern jnAnis pass the Lord's litmus test? Questions to ponder....
For that matter, strictly speaking, even our *bygone guru-s/jnAni* had not
met all the qualities of stitaprajna as enshrined in gIta...have they
prabhuji ?? there were instances where it seems they have been fallen
from that lofty state of stitaprajna...but we do overlook those instances
by labelling it either it is leela of the jnAni or by questioning
ourselves "how dare we are to question jnAni's activities" ?? :-)) What I
am trying to say here is..our adjudication with regard to call one person a
jnAni or another person a fake ...is purely subjective...he may be a rich
person like janaka maharaj or he may be a avadhuta like dattatrEya or he
may be a atyAshrami like ramaNa...only jnAni recognises another
jnAni..nobody else...IMHO it is very difficult to mesure the level of jnAni
by his external activities...
