In Bhagwaat – Bhagwaan (God) said to Rukmaniji. “Nishkanchana vayam shaashvat nishkanchanaa janah priya.” God is without anything at all. We too are without anything. Bhagwaan (God) says that He who is without anything is loving to Bhagwaan. “Vasudeva Sarvam” – Everything is God. Yet, God has nothing with Him. When everything is God, then He Himself has nothing. Bhagwaan has said “Matah paratan naayatkinchitdasti dhananjaya.” (Gita 7:7). “Nothing else exists except Me.” He has nothing with Him. We have nothing with us either. A devotee (bhakt) does not consider anyone as His own. Bhakta (Devotee) considers only God as His own, nothing else. We are all “empty handed” (nishkanch). Besides Bhagwaan nothing is ours.
“Naivam kinchit karomiti” “I am doing nothing, not in the least bit” (Gita 5:8). Paramatma (God) is Consciousness, Existence of all beings. Existence is all that we have. Nothing else remains with us. Bhagwaan has nothing, and we too have nothing, as nothing remains with us. If even the body does not remain, then what else can we consider ours? Neither the mind, nor intellect, nor life-breath is ours. Our true self is all that we have, and that is Existence, Consciousness. The unreal is not ours, never was and never can be. We are also without anything and God is also without anything.
As long as something is ours, we cannot be freed. When we accept that nothing is ours, then it will make us free of all worries. (nischint). The worries come when we think something is ours. Considering these things as ours is the main bondage. Therefore knowing that we have nothing at all, become free of all worries (nischint). When nothing is ours, then we can be very firm and sure about our aim. If something remains i.e. if you feel something is yours, then you cannot attain salvation, liberation, devotion etc. The world itself is perishable as nothing will remain. We have only accepted these things to be ours. That which we have accepted as ours, is itself bondage (bandhan). If we do not accept anything in the world as ours, then we become peaceful (nischint). I am His and He is mine. What an amazing point this is.
