it goes contrary to the कृतकृत्यता

Hare Krishna

Attaining the ekatva jnana is something different from 'experiencing' that same ekatva jnana, like knowledge about swimming and practically swimming in the water ---saying goes like this in some of the traditional texts.  Hence jnAni is krutakrutya only when he practically has the experience of this ekatva jnAna at a particular point of time and in a particular state of mind.  More details with regard to this can be had from the popular works like pancha dashi, jeevanmukti viveka, yoga perfection and enlightenment etc.  Just providing the additional information with regard to this not for any debate.

Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!

If there is something remains to be attained, even after sadAtmana ekatva
(advaita) jnAna prApti, it goes contrary to the कृतकृत्यता mentioned in sruti, smrti and bhAshya ..

‘आत्मानं चेद्विजानीयादयमस्मीति पूरुषः । किमिच्छन्कस्य कामाय शरीरमनुसंज्वरेत्’ (बृ. उ. ४-४-१२)

‘एतद्बुद्ध्वा बुद्धिमान्स्यात्कृतकृत्यश्च भारत’ (भ. गी. १५-२०)

यद्ब्रह्मात्मावगतौ सत्यां सर्वकर्तव्यताहानिः कृतकृत्यता चेति (BSB)

एवं प्रसन्नचेतसः अवस्थितबुद्धेः कृतकृत्यता यतः,  (BGB)
