Freedom from Worldly Desires – 9 (Vairaagya)

(continued)

It is said in Ram Gita that –

Yeh sevate maamgunam gunaatparam,
Hrdaa kadaa vaa yadi va gunaatmakam |
Soham swapaadachitarenubhih sprshan
Punati loktritayam yathaa ravih ||

He who worships my attributeless form or sometimes he who serves and worships that which is beyond my magical attributes, the form with attributes, he is my very own Self. Just like the Sun purifies the three worlds, He too purifies simply by the touch of the dust of His lotus feet.

One can attain freedom from worldly desires even by beholding God’s loving devotees that wander around blissfully-inspiring while remaining in recollection of God. In the streets that they pass through, dispassion and God’s divine love flows like Gangaji. When one remembers devotees like Suteekshan, then dispassion takes place. God also hides and watches such devotees. Why? On seeing his devotee immersed in meditation, He too becomes joyful and begins to hide and look at them.

The inner-faculties are purified on doing spiritual disciplines. With that also one develops dispassion. This type of dispassion (detachment) is better than dispassion through thinking (vichaar).

On attaining God Realization, the freedom from worldly desires is extremely divine (alaukik). It cannot even be described; it cannot be called attachment or detachment. Such extra-ordinary dispassion is only among those great souls that have realized God. Till “Brahmalok” no matter how many different types of sense enjoyments one gets, there does not remain even the slightest possibility of a hint of passion arising in his inner faculty, because besides that One essence of God, there appears to be no where any relish or any thing significant.

Besides the essence of Paramatma nothing remains.

To attain that state which in inexpressible in words it is essential to associate with those men that have become free from worldly pleasures and those that have realized God. By their words, their actions, we must take lessons and learn very quickly. No one has ever had any happiness from worldly objects, nor can they ever have any happiness, it is not possible for them to have happiness from worldly objects. By thinking so, he who is following the path of devotion, must make an effort to engage his mind in God. And in the path of knowledge, he must lift off from the mind the existence of objects and must with a firm aim keep in mind at all times and understand that it is only existence, consciousness and bliss, entirely and only Brahm, Paramatma (God) alone.

  1. Pragnaben Vyas says,

    “વૈરાગ્યનો અર્થ એ નથી કે સામાજીક કર્તવ્યો તથા જીવનના ઉત્તરદાયિત્વોનો ત્યાગ કરવો. એનો અર્થ સંસારથી અલગ થઈ જવું એવો પણ નથી. એનો અર્થ એવો નથી કે વૈરાગી પુરુષે હિમાલયની ગુફાઓ અથવા સ્મશાનમાં જીવન વિતાવવું જોઈએ. વૈરાગ્યનો એ અર્થ નથી થતો કે સંસારના ભોગો છોડીને પાંડદા, ગૌમૂત્ર અને ગોબર પર ગુજરાન કરવું. એનો એ અર્થ પણ નથી થતો કે જટા ધારણ કરી તથા હાથમાં નાળીયેરમાંથી બનેલ કમણ્ડલ લઈને ભ્રમણ કરવું. એનો એ અર્થ નથી કે માથુ મૂંડાવી અને કપડાનો ત્યાગ કરી દેવો. આ આપણી બધી ધારણા અને સમજણ ખોટી છે.”
