* Thanks for the reference with regard to SMN and again S of mahAvAkya for the jnAna as sAdhana part. Will have a look at it to-night.
Also please see the footnote 4 by Sri SSS in his translation of BUB 2-4-5 on the meaning of the term * kevala shravaNa * mentioned by you.
* Yes, will have a look at it too, just to add, normally, kevala sharavaNa of vedAnta vAkya will not fetch the ultimate knowledge (vedAntra vAkya janya jnana) but keval shruti vAkya shravaNa could definitely give the ultimate knowledge in some exceptional cases, as narrated in shwetaketu uddaalaka episode, krishnArjuna saMvAda in geetOpadesha, in the story of 10th man and neti neti pratishedha vAkya pramANa. So, nAnyathA shravaNa mAtreNa needs to be contextually understood!! for manda and madhyama adhikAri-s or for those who do not have the capability to get Atmaikatva jnana through shravaNa mAtra, then manana and nidhidhyAsana prescribed for them.
Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
