The Twelve Levels of Vairagya #47
To renounce the world, whether one is a monk or a householder, is most important. Peace of mind comes after such renunciation is attained. And there are levels of detachment that reveal the progress of a practitioner dedicated to this beneficial end. This weaning of the immature mind off of the idea that the world, separate from Brahman is real, reflects authentic progress along the razor’s-edged path of spirituality. The twelve levels of Vairagya act as a definitive measure for such rare internal advancement.
