Viveka and Vairagya

Viveka means knowledge. Vairagya, detachment. Knowledge is not mere accumulation of information from preceptors and scriptures.

    The quintessence of all spiritual practice is viveka knowledge and vairagya renunciation. Viveka is knowledge of the higher values of life. And vairagya, a sense of dispassion. They are two sides of the same coin. As one imbibes higher values, one tastes the joys of subtler living. Recognises the futility of his erstwhile involvements and grows above them.  Such growth enhances one’s ability to acquire more knowledge. Viveka and vairagya thus act as two pedals to the wheel of spiritual evolution culminating in Self-realisation.
