In this Satsang, Ma speaks about the quality of Vairagya (Dispassion). A seeker who has intense dispassion, has understood the ephemerality of life and is not interested in worldly enjoyments. He withdraws within and wholesomely pursues the spiritual path.

Those who are devoid of Vairagya, even if they are well-versed in scriptures, remain deluded. They are gripped by possessiveness, ‘I’ness, ‘mine’ness and clinging and as a result they undergo suffering. They believe that all their wealth and possessions are permanent. By this outlook, they are forever in the prison of worldliness.

A wise man may have a very good family, have wealth and possessions, but his outlook is different. He feels that everything in front of him is perishable and short-lived. So, he renounces the attachment and clinging to everything.

A householder spends his whole life taking care of the needs of his family, fulfilling his duties and obligations, but he fails to notice the passage of time. He does not reflect on the temporariness of life and his own possessions. He undergoes many sufferings but he still does not develop dispassion. He remains wedded to his family and possessions. He forgets the purpose of human life—to attain the Self.

Through shlokas from various scriptures, Ma urges all seekers to introspect on the impermanence and transitoriness of life. The Sadhana should be to make an effort to constantly do Vichara and grow dispassion.
