discrimination has a lot of meanings.. because discrimination has so many aspects.. it may discrimination of knowledge of happiness, ultimate reality, self, so on and so forth. what i mean here is general discrimination. i guess, you know it already..

It comes from the noun discrimen (spelt discrimin- in oblique cases) "difference/distinction".  As in Vergil's Aeneid, when Tyrian Dido offers hospitality to the sore Trojans:

Tros Tyriusque mihi nullo discrimine agetur

"Trojan and Tyrian shall be treated by me with no discrimen (difference/distinction)"
