Vivekakhyatih (viveka = discrimination, judgement, true knowledge, discretion; khyati = the faculty of discriminating objects by an appropriate designation) awareness of knowledge, fame, celebrity
aviplava undisturbed, unbroken, un-fluctuating, unfailing
hanopayah the means for removal, the means for dispersion
The ceaseless flow of discriminative knowledge in thought, word and deed destroys ignorance, the source of pain.
Un-fluctuating sound judgement with unremitting awareness is the essence of true knowledge, the only means to eliminate ignorance and free the seer from the seen. It should always be kept in the highest state of awareness and attentiveness, known as vivekakhyati, the crown of wisdom.
The seeds of false knowledge need to be burnt up through unremitting yogic practices to maintain an unbroken flow of discriminative intelligence.
