Jnani Debates

"Lately there have been a lot of people studying in Advaita, deciding they are jnanis and going around studying and arguing and going around teaching....We ought to have jnani debates, where all the jnanis in the world show up. Whoever shows up loses of course."

-Robert Adams
(Advaita Teacher, direct disciple of Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharshi. I paraphrased the first sentence from a longer digression in the original).

Note: A jnani is a liberated sage in Advaita Vedanta, literally a "knower".
