02.Apavada = Its removal.

05.Manana = Reflecting on sravana.
06.Vasanakshaya = Annihilation of latencies.
07.Sakshatkara = Direct Realisation.

10. Nirvikalpa Samadhi =
11. Jeevan Mukti =
12.. Videaha Mukti =

Another of the items I am overdue in dealing with is to post the PDF of
the English translation of this work very kindly provided by our member
Shri D.V.N. Sharma. Shankara Jayanti which was today in the U.S. seems
like an appropriate time to make it available.
It is an epitome of the teachings of Advaita Vedanta written in Sanskrit
in 8 chapters. (Supposedly there were originally 12, but the last 4 are
not available in print.) The author is the famous Swami Hariharananda
Saraswati aka Karpatra Maharaj. Swami Ramananda Saraswati translated it
A notable thing about this work is that it was held in great esteem by
Shri Ramana Maharshi who normally didn't care for written shastras.
