D.: What are the sadhanas or requisites for this process?

M.: The knowers say that the sadhanas consist of an ability to discern the real from the unreal, no desire for pleasures here or hereafter, cessation of activities (karma) and a keen desire to be liberated.

Not qualified with all these four qualities, however hard one may try, one cannot succeed in enquiry.

D - Devotee
M - Ramana Maharshi

Dear prasanth,

Yes. Mumukshatvam (desire for liberation and not for Heaven)
is the first pre-requisite.  Then comes chitta suddhi.  This chitta
suddhi comes from malapari pagam, the vanquishing of karma and
maya.

Arunachala Siva.
