My aim (as the title of my series indicates) is to show that the
traditional position is this - without sannyasa, even if one acquires
samyag Jnana, it does not confer the fruit of jivanMukti.

Quite funny observation. So according to you Janaka, who was a
chakravorthy was not a jeevan mukta, avatAra purusha-s like rAma, krishna
were not jeevan mukta-s, vidhura & dharmavyAdha-s, who were shUdra-s, not
jeevan mukta-s, prahlAda, dhruva who were kshatriya-s were not jeevan
mukta-s, raikva, vAchaknavi, saMvarta those who quote shankara in sUtra
bhAshya as atyAshrami-s were not jeevan mukta-s, uddAlaka who taught
brahma vidya to his son svetaketu was not jeeva mukta, ...so, ultimately,
you are telling jeevan mukta-s are those who are saNyAsi-s not others!!
could you explain me in one or two sentences what exactly do you mean by
the ter 'saNySa' here, if at all it is not an external attires &
I shall come back to your long reply to my mail on other list on the same
subject in due course....
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
