Also Krishna glorifies the teachers who teach this knowledge to those who
deserve and approach them with sincere desire to know.
It is very true that the teacher should not 'pass' his secret knowledge to
an 'ayOgya' or 'anadhikAri' disciple. But irony is that now-a-days, we
have been seeing Acharya-s or traditional teachers, who are supposed to
maintain the secrecy of this guhyAtiguhya vidya, writing volumes &
volumes on this vidyA with all available details, giving public lectures
on upanishad rahasya vidyA which is supposed to be taught to the 'able'
shishya on 1:1 basis. There was a time when they used to say, when
shishya is ready (pakva), guru himself will approach him till then
struggle hard to purify your mind..But I think those days have gone,
irrespective of 'adhikAra' 'yOgyata' this vidya has become an open secret
to one and all :-)) Perhaps this would be one of the reasons, today, we
have somany versions of same vedAnta jnAna with conflicting view points
from various schools of thought like dvaita, advaita, v.advaita etc.. Just
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
