Jivan Mukti
« on: June 10, 2009, 10:55:34 AM »
On 9th Jan 1946, one Mr. P. Banerjee asked Bhagavan:
"What is the difference between Jivanmukti and Videhamukti?"

Bhagavan:  There is no difference.  For those who aske, it
is said:  A Jnani with body is a Jivanmukta and he attains
Videhamuki when he drops off the body.  But this difference
is only for the onlooker, not for the Jnani.

[Ribhu Gita, English translation, The Song of Ribhu gives
a detailed chart as an appendix about these states, again
from the onlooker's point of view.]

Arunachala Siva.
