Brahmajnana is not a karmaphala that it should be necessarily preceded by
samit and praNipAta. Of course approaching a Guru may help. But saying that
seeker perforce should approach a guru or should be an adherent of vaidika
is fundamentalism. We hear about jnanis in other nations who are not
vaidika dharma. After all God cannot be partial to Hindus only. Do not
forget that followers
every religion in world thinks that they are the chosen ones. Atleast let
us be more
intelligent and wise.
