023 – by Swamini Ma Gurupriya – Have Desire for Vairagya Only

1478 Views | 2 years ago

Most of us think we need desires to move forward in life. Ma Gurupriya lovingly opens our eyes to the truth – that desires are nothing but poisonous vines that bind, causing fear and suffering. The only way to free ourselves from their clutches is with the powerful blade of vairagya (dispassion).

As we go along this path, we may feel we are growing in dispassion and have dropped worldly desires. Seekers beware, cautions Ma, desires lurk in our innermost recesses. What we must be extremely watchful of, and develop dispassion to then are our own thoughts. It is our thoughts that ultimately victimize us, making us fall prey to raga-dvesha (preferences and prejudices). The solution is given by our scriptures – simply overcome all desires, with the most powerful desire for dispassion.
