Four stages of learning

Acquiring a skill has, according to Indian tradition, four stages: adheeti, bOdha, aacharaNa and prachaaram.

  1. adheeti (అధీతి) involves studying the subject with due attention.
  2. bOdha (బోధ) involves distilling what is studied into the essential knowledge of the subject.
  3. aacharaNa (ఆచరణ) is putting the knowledge to practice.
  4. prachaaram (ప్రచారం) involves passing that practical knowledge to others.
