I think this is where you differ - I believe, based on the below (pasting what you had said earlier), you are saying that the mahAvAkya has to be once again physically heard:

"SMN have to be practiced together over and over till Realization which  takes place only during Shravana, on the utterance of the MahAvAkya (forming part of Shravana) by the Guru after Manana and NididhyAsana help in refining the mind to enable such Realization to take place, even though the sAdhaka  might have  heard the MahAvAkya from the Guru earlier."

The bhAShya portion you had quoted did not make this explicit requirement, but I may have missed it.

  *   Yes for this quote only I was asking for the bhAshya support.  AvruttyadhikaraNa and bhAshya do not speak anything in specific with regard to this.  But Sri ChandramouLi prabhuji assured me that there could be a specific support for this elsewhere in prasthAna traya bhAshya.  I heard that if the sincere mumukshu take sannyasa from his guru, after taking sannyasa, to this sanyasi shishya alongwith praNavOpadesha, Guru would give mahAvAkya upadesha also and ask him to do dhyAna on that!!??  I think this practice (if at all it is so) in tradition would support that after SMN once again mahAvAkya shravaNa required for the dhyAna to get jnAna.  Any authentic information on this would be highly appreciated.

Hari Hari Hari Bol!!!
