You take every Holyman is a Jnani.

The Sampradaya of the so called Holyman is important. Nowadays we see
Holymen with no proper Sampradaya. They are not Jnanis they are false
Sanyasis. They are after money and luxury in life. True Jnani will not
act like that.
> Yes, for that matter all holymen within saMpradAya cannot be invariably
jnAni-s...There might be real jnAni-s within saMpradAya- who are
'seemingly' enjoying the facilities at their respective maTha-s and
parallelly there might be fake guru-s as well within saMpradAya who are
comfortably enjoying with real attachment...And at the same time we cannot
conclude that jnAni-hood possible ONLY within one particular saMpradAya
when atyAshrami jnAni-s who donot belong to any saMpradAya is quite
evident. And we the ajnAni-s cannot prepare the list of do's & dont's for
the jnAni and expect him to follow...A jnAni may be a king like janaka,
gruhasta like yAjnAvalkya saNyAsi like our bhagavatpAda, atyAshrami like
ramaNa or nagna yOgi like saMvarta...The external appearances, statuses,
attires etc. of these jnAni-s are only our perception, and the real jnAni
would not identify himself with BMI and say: see I am a 'king jnAni'
there is another 'saNyAsi jnAni' in forest :-)) The popular saying goes
: ONLY jnAni can identify another jnAni ( but for the real jnAni there is
no 'another') :-))
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
