🔔 SPIRITUAL DON’TS FOR SUCCESS IN LIFE AND GOD REALIZATION 🔔
🔔After DON’TS in RIGHT CONDUCT. We begin with…….🔔
⚜Don’ts in VAIRAGYA⚜
Vairagya is the opposite of Raga (attachment). Vairagya is dispassion. Vairagya is detachment. Vairagya is indifference to sensual enjoyment here and hereafter. It
Vairagya is mental detachment from all connections with the world. That is all. A man may live in the world and discharge all the duties with perfect detachment.
A man can develop inner mental detachment from pleasure and pain while living in the world. He should see that he is not carried away by the pleasant experience of the world. He should not cling to them. He should simply remain as a silent spectator.
If he thus practises for some years, every experience will be a positive step in his ascent on the spiritual ladder. Eventually he will be crowned with sanguine success. He will then have an un-ruffled mind. He will have a poised mind also.
Don’t forget the miseries of the world
Don’t try to get comforts
Don’t forget Death
Don’t care for tomorrow
Don’t write letters.
Don’t read newspapers.
Don’t try to redress your problems
8th DON’T Don’t possess anything.
Not possessing anything is non-possessiveness (also known as abstinence from greed) called as Aparigraha.
It is actually complete freedom from greed or covetousness. You should not try to possess more than you minimally need.
This keeps the mind unoccupied and also he (the aspirant) does not have to worry about anything because there is nothing (no possessions) there to be protected.” When we become non-possessive, or non-attached, we become impartial
and in that way the conditioned love, affection, compassion and so on becomes unconditional.
