The Vivekachudamani is a famous work by Adi Shankara that expounds Advaita Vedanta philosophy. In Vivekachudamani, Shankara describes developing Viveka—the human faculty of discrimination—as the central task in the spiritual life and calls it the “crown jewel” among the essentials for Moksha.’Viveka’ means discrimination, ‘Chuda’ is crest, and ‘Mani’ means jewel. Hence the title means ‘Crest-jewel of discrimination’.
