The ten orders created by Shankaracharya can be defined as follows:
One who is free from bonds and is confined to Ashram and has embraced sanyas.
One who is fully laden with learning?
One who lives in forest and is steady.
One who lives in forest and has steadfast knowledge about the transient nature of the mundane world.
One who is full of real knowledge and has mastered the knowledge of Brahman and is as such in union with the Parabrahman.
One who is devoted to knowledge of tunes and is also called Lord of poets.
One who knows not only the full depths of oceans of truth, but has also lived to the bottom and collected jewels of knowledge.
One who takes bath at the confluence of three rivers in the form of knowledge and the realisation of truth?
He always lives in the realisation of identity of his self with the universal self.
One who has transcended the snares of desires and resides in a forest.
