SWAMI SIVANANDA’S TEACHINGS
🔔 SPIRITUAL DON’TS FOR SUCCESS IN LIFE AND GOD REALIZATION 🔔
⚜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
Don’t try to find remedies or to set upright your problems.
This world is full of difficulties and troubles.
Attachment is the root cause of the innumerable miseries and troubles of this world. Discipline your mind little by little. The old evil habits will creep in. Destroy them to the very root. Lead a life of perfect non-attachment. This is the master key to open the realms of Brahmic Bliss.
Escape from these troubles. There is only one way. Lead a life of dispassion, self-control, purity, selfless service, cosmic love. Develop the habit of taking the right point of view, right thinking, right feeling, right acting, with right mental attitude or Bhav. Practice devotion and meditation.
