In most SwayamAchArya families the AchArya is a Grihastha and will pay his respects to a Jeer since the all the Jeers have traditionally been SannyAsis. Besides in the Vadagalai SampradAyam at least even the SwayamAchAry family members and the AchArya himself generally get their Prapatti done at the Matha. The Jeer therefore becomes the AchArya even for SwayamAchArya families. The general rule followed is that one learns from a superior, exchanges experiences and indulges in discussions with an equal and teaches one who knows less. Whether one is a swayamAchArya or belongs to a Mutt does not make a difference. It is a question who one respects and is willing to learn from.
