If prarabda is immutable even by jnana, then it will be deemed more
than jnana. The reason prarabda remains is so that there is a jnani
available to teach others.
No, actually it has been debated here that due to prArabdha the different
jnAni-s would have different set of antaHkaraNa-s and accordingly these
different kinds of antaHkaraNa-s would have different kind of 'capacity'
to withhold the 'same' Atma jnAna...So, with the result of this, jnAni-A,
may not get affected by vagaries of the material life at all and he
remains cool & calm always, whereas jnAni-B, due to his 'different' set
of antaHkaraNa (due to his prArabdha) may get kAma & krOdha and these type
of jnAni-s may require different time span to 'control' these kAmAdi
vAsana-s...The 'B' type jnAni may get irritated & disturb himself even
something goes against his comfort zone...like there is no 'news paper'
in time for him to read or there is no hot water for the morning bath due
to power cut or some other reason :-)) So, prArabdha is NOT ONLY the
cause for just continuation of the jnAni's body, but it may have different
impact on different jnAni-s & it holds sway on his behaviour also...If
this is the real state of affair for the jnAni-B, then we will have to say
prArabdha is more powerful than Atmaikatva jnAna.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
