    Hi,

    Unlike user devotee, I would suggest that you do NOT jump into any threads online.

    To understand the intricacies of our various darshanas, it is a much better idea to become familiar with the basics using a physical book. Get a hold of a good translation of the Samkhyakarika to understand the intricacies of Samkhya. Once you understand Samkhya, you will be well prepared on the basis Advaita builds its metaphysics on.

    Also, get a hold of Shankara's commentary on the Bhagavad Gita and his Brahmasutrabhasya.

    All of the books mentioned above are available at a very reasonable price here.

    Namaste Vipranarayanan,

    Please go through the blog I have written below

    http://hindudharmaforums.com/entry.p...within-Advaita.

    Also for a better understanding of Advaita Vedanta please read the book Introduction to Vedanta by Dayananda Saraswati.

    He introduces the subject in a beautiful way. There are many videos of his as well on youtube.

    Just know that terms with in Sankhya and Yoga philosophy is used in all Darshanas of Hindu Dharma.
