According to shrii Adi shaNkaaraacharya's
commentary in the prakaaraNa grantha "tattvabodha",
the four-fold qualifications are:
The capacity to discriminate between the permanent
and the impermanent.
Dispassion to the enjoyment of the fruits of
one's actions here and hereafter.
The group of six accomplishments beginning with
mumukShutvaM cheti |
The yearning for liberation.
The group of six accomplishments spoken of above
are the accomplishments of saadhana as follows:
shamo dama uparamastitikShaa shraddhaa
samaadhaanM cha iti |
They are: shama, dama, uparama, titikShaa,
shraddhaa, and samaadhaana.
An explanation of these according to "tattvabodha"
will be given later.
