praNAms Sri Subbu prabhuji
> Little free time at office, hope you wont mind continuing this
A contact with a Jnani can be such a conducive circumstance.
> My question is particular here..whether this jnAni is ONLY accepted
paramArtha jnAni of vedAnta saMpradAya or any other noble 'father'from
Christianity or 'sufi'or sacred mullah from Islamic religion will do??
His paripaaka is such that he accepts that sage, his words as the exact
ones required for
his liberation. Even a book on this topic can bring about such an effect.
> interesting, prabhuji, you are saying here a written book, news paper
article, internet mesg. or website information will be an alternative for
the physical presence & interaction of the guru ?? In that case what is
the need of traditional gurukula, importance of sampradAya and sAmpradAyic
instructions like : tadvijnAnArthaM sa gurumevAbhigacchet samitpANiH
shrOtreeyaM brahma nishTaM?? tadviddhi pranipAtena, pariprashnena
sevayaa?? etc. Do you mean to say here for the 'ready' sAdhaka' a book is
more than enough to complete the role of 'guru'?? I am not sure you are
saying this as a genral rule or an exceptional one for some particular
These terms may not matter but their meaning is clear for every seeker of
Vedanta sampradaya accepts that this knowledge can come to a person
puraaNa shravaNa also, any other kathA or essay on the topic can work.
> If that is the case where does the scope of vedAnta as untya pramANa
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
