> 4) adhikaari for nivRtti maarga is a sannyaasin.
Can you quote any teacher or text that says the above point. I can understand
that a sanyasi is an adhikAri for nivR^tti, but should every adhikAri be a
sanyAsi. I understand that it is the stand of this list, but is it possible to
quote some text where it clearly states so (other than "tyAgainEkEna amR^tatva
mAnasuH - mahAnArAyaNa Up - which I don't interpret as above). I am asking for
my own informed decision making.
> 10)karma and jnAna are antagonistic to each other and cannot be
> practised simultaneously.
The above statement should always be followed by the statement that while karma
and jnAna are opposites, karma yoga and jnAna yoga are NOT opposites. karma
yoga is a preparation to jnAna yoga. Otherwise, some may confuse the above statement.
Do You Yahoo!?
