Sri Nitin Ji,
Reg << I was wondering if any
of our Acharyas specifically mention this that for Uttama Adhikari, Sravana
directly leads to Jnana and Moksha, while Madhyama adhikari require
Nidhidhyasa and the Mandha adhikari requires Karma+Upasana.>>,
You could refer to Jivanmukti Viveka of Swami Vidyaranya , vAsanAkshaya
prakaranam, pp 124 in the book by Swami Harshananda of RK mutt (English
विद्याधिकारी द्विविधः, कृतोपास्तिरकृतोपास्तिश्चेति ।
(vidyAdhikArI dvividhaH, kRRitopAstirakRRitopAstishcheti |),
Translation << Aspirants entitled for knowledge are of two kinds: those who
have gone through the discipline of worship (upAsanA), and those who are
yet to undergo >>.
The terms are further explained therein. The first kind is specifically
stated to be the real uttama adhikAri. The second could then be considered
the madhyama adhikAri.
I presume this is what you are looking for.
