(Contd. From the book “The Depth of Knowledge”)

Maiyaji:That is because of the excess attachment. We don’t even think about it that, the body which we have been decorating, the things we have been collecting, one day, they all will be left behind. This is the only wonder that while saying good bye to another, one thinks that he is going to stay forever.

Shriji: How to develop the virtue of detachment?

Maiyaji: whatever is visible in this material world is  constantly changing. Nothing is permanent. The only thing that is permanent is God- wisdom thoughts like this give birth to detachment.

Shriji: ‘Vritti’(tendencies) don’t trouble after attaining the ‘gyana’ (Ultimate Knowledge)?

Maiyaji: They do trouble, but a ‘Gyani’(man of wisdom) doesn’t see them within Him. He witnesses them ascending and descending.

Shriji: this body is going to die, still, why do we have so much attachment to it?

Maiyaji: Because you get attached to your body. Treat your body like a horse. Just like a horse owner feeds its horse to get work done by it, similarly, feed your body to get work done by it. Don’t keep attachment with it.
