Paravairagya & Aparavairagya #298
The principle of detachment, termed vairagya in Sanskrit, is crucial to spiritual life and its ongoing stages. There are also several levels of detachment, as this wisdom chart illustrates. The father of Yoga details these steps copiously so that aspiring seekers can know when to exert personal will, when to wait on time and circumstance, and when to recognize and claim higher stages for themselves. At the height of it all is Paravairagya, wherein all attachments have been released and the best of peace and equanimity has been attained.
