Sadhana chatushtaya sampatti .

HARIH  OM 
Sadhana  chatushtaya  sampatti .

               Attaining  Self -knowledge  requires  that  a  seeker  is  a  sadana  chatushtaya  sampannaha. . He  should  be  having  preparatory  disciplines  ,so  that  he  is  fit  to  conduct  the  Self- enquiry. . Sadhana  chatushtaya  sampatti  is  a  fourfold  preparatory  discipline   consisting  of  viveka-  discrimination,  , vairagya-  dispassion,  mumukshutvam  -  desire  for  moksha,  and  shatka  sampatti  -sixfold  disciplines. 

              Viveka  is  the  understanding  of  what  is  nityam  and  anithyam  ,  the  permanent ,the  real  and  the  impermanent  ,  the  unreal. . The  capacity  to  discriminate  between  the  two  is  viveka. . The  world  is  perishable,  and  hence  cannot  give  us  permanent  happiness  and  peace. . To  expect  permanent  happiness  and  peace  from  an  impermanent  thing  is  foolishness. . So  the  seeker  turns  towards  nitya  vastu  ,  to  the  Real  ,which  is  the  changeless  substratum  ,  the  eternal  factor  called  Brahman   for  securing  lasting  and  permanent  peace  and  happiness. . This  understanding  is  called  nitya  -anitya  vastu  viveka. 

           Vairagya  is  called  dispassion  .  Passion  is  clinging  to  the  world  for  happiness. . The  absence  of  desire  for  enjoyments  for  the  fruits  of  one's  actions  in  this  world  and  in  heaven is  called  vairagya. . It  does  not  consist  in  running  away  from  the  world.. It  is  having  the  strength  to  give  up  the  sorrow  giving  impermanent  and  joyless  objects  mentally  or  physically  .  With  total  dispassion  ,one  does  not  even  desire  the  subtlest  pleasures  of  heaven. . A  man  develops  dispassion  only  after  having  a  certain  amount  of  discrimination  between  nitya  and  anitya  vastu  . Dispassion  purifies  the  mind  and  makes  it  fit  for  subtler  discrimination. . Dispassion  increases  when  likes  and  dislikes  are  given  up   and  when  one  surrenders  to  the  Lord's  Will.   One  with dispassion  becomes  fearless  because  he  now  does  not  depend  on the  world  for  his  happiness. . So  the  two  ,  viveka  and  vairagya  are  the  two  wings  with  which  the  seeker  flies  in search  of  Truth.
