 Dear friends.
   "I AM"  alone  is  jagadguru  because  "I AM"  appearsas   jagat   and   'me'. There  is  no second  conscious  entityother  than  "I AM".  Please  refer to mantras  3-7-23  and  3-8-11  of  Bruhadaranyaka Upanishad.
In  the  light  of  the  teachings  of  Upanishads 
 actually  and  factually  no  name  and  form (entity)  
can  be  a jagadguru!
With respectful namaskars,Sreenivasa Murthy

It is a debate on 'whether Shankaracharya alone can be 'Jagadguru'.  I
don't see nyaya shaastra here. The sannyasi says, rather reasons: For us,
Krishna is Jagadguru. And Shankaracharya alone can be Jagadguru and
Ramanuja and Madhva can't. Reason: Shankara's realization is 'aham brahma
asmi'. Brahman alone can be jagadguru, same as Krishna. But in Ramanuja and
Madhva, their realization is never 'aham brahma' but 'aham jiva alone.'
How can jiva be jagadguru? This is the line of argument.
