The absence of Self-enquiry is responsible for bondage. For a qualified seeker, possessing both purity of the mind and focus of the intellect, Self-enquiry immediately bestows Self-realisation and ends the bondage. For seekers who lack the capacity for deep and subtle Self-enquiry, due to the inadequacy of their mind-intellect equipment, Vedanta advocates that they first gain the paroksha-jnana to comprehend the Truth through the teachings of the shastra and the Guru, and thereafter, meditate upon It. Gradually such seekers also gain direct Self-realisation.

In Pancadashi Chapter 9, Dhyanadipa-prakarana (The Lamp of Meditation), Swami Vidyaranya details this meditation in his characteristic logical fashion by explicating the concepts of ‘samvadi-bhrama’ and ‘visamvadi-bhrama’. He delineates how meditation on Brahman, though being a samvadi-bhrama, nevertheless has the capacity to usher in the direct Realisation of the Self.
