Does a jivanmukta know he is liberated?
Sankara in BSB 4.1.15
For, when somebody has the
conviction in his heart that he has realised Brahman and yet retains
the body, how can this be denied by anybody else?
If so when/how?
YadA Sarve PramUchyantE KAmAh Ye'sya Hrdi SthitAh
When all the desires, forms of yearning, of One, who is a Knower of Brahman, are destroyed, conjointly their root, then alone does this One attain to liberation.
Shri Gurubhyoh namah

According to the book, a disciple may become deluded that he is liberated
but it is the guru who
confirms that he is liberated.
> I would like to read it in this way, if shishya is deluded that he is
jnAni then guru would come to the rescue of his deluded shishya & educate
him that he is not yet realized!! shAstra says, after realization there
remains no saMshya (bhidyate hrudaya granthim chidhya 'sarva'
saMshaya)..so, a really realized jnAni would not approach anybody for his
jnAna certification, he is svAtmAnandaleena & krutakrutya.
It quotes the case of Narada who though he had realized the absolute on
realizing the Prana but SanatKumara corrected him.
> correction required means it is not absoulte paramArtha jnAna, that is
the reason why sanatkumAra had to teach nArada.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
