How do you develop viveka?

Post by Whippet » Tue Nov 20, 2018 1:22 pm

Hello all.

Does anyone know of specific practices to develop viveka?
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Viveka

I'm familiar with Buddhist practices, but my knowledge of Hindu practice is very limited.

Your link provides a excellent guide, the Crest Jewel of Wisdom by Shankara. There are several good translations in English. Basically Shankara gives practices on how to discriminate between the Real & the Unreal.

This one of the popular versions, if you get the book it has commentary.
