INDICATORS OF PREPAREDNESS FOR VEDANTA STUDY

Swami Sadatmananda, Chief Acharya, Arsha Vidya Gurukulam, Anaikatti while answering a question of a Student during satsangh on March 2, 2017 explained the indicators of preparedness of a Student for Vedanta Study.

The four fold qualification prescribed for a student of Vedanta is not possible to be achieved 100% and also not necessary. But minimum level of preparedness is required, when one starts the Vedanta study.

The minimum preparedness can be gauged through the following indicators. This is just to give an approximate idea. It is not rigid or all all- inclusive list. But useful for a Sadhaka for introspection without judgment.

1. There is clarity of the goal of life. This results in dispassion which is there for most of the time. One is able to see the disconnect between one’s activities and one’s goal of life.

2. One is able to remain attentive during most of the time while attending a class or listening to recordings.

3. One has self-esteem and relative self-acceptance. One feels confident that one is capable of pursuing moksha.

4. One’s mind does not go to adharma deliberately. One does not plan, scheme or maneuver for doing a non-righteous action. Sometimes one may inadvertently do a wrong action.

5. One is able to relatively accept the world. One does not have a cynical and complaining approach.

6. One is not having a hangover of situations and is able to overcome before going to bed or atleast within a period of 24 hours.

As mentioned earlier, the above mentioned points are not exhaustive and are only indicatory.

Sastra study becomes fruitful on reaching the critical level of adikaritvam. When adikaritvam increase there is growing clarity.
