On a fit recipient of the knowledge of the Atman – Vivekachudamani

Success depends essentially on a qualified aspirant, and time, place and such other means are but auxiliaries in this regard.
Hence the seeker after the Reality of the Atman should take to reasoning, after duly approaching the Guru – who should be the best of the knowers of Brahman, and an ocean of mercy.
The intelligent and learned man skilled in arguing in favor of the scriptures and refuting counter argument against them, - one who has got the above characteristics is the fit recipient of the knowledge of the Atman.
The man of discrimination between the Real and the unreal, who possesses calmness and the allied virtues, and is long for liberation, is alone considered qualified to inquire after Brahman.  Vivekachudamani
