Gita Vahini-True Renunciation – Focus on God, not the World- Baba

If you want to reach the Lord and have a vision of him, the most important quality that you need to develop is detachment. Detachment endows you with the capacity to internalize your vision. Detachment allows you to introvert your mind and dwell on your inner beauty.

Embodiments of Love,

Once you recognize the defects and weaknesses in the objects of the world you soon lose your desire to possess them. The mind is very strong and fickle. It is also very obstinate. It is forever determined to get its way. Arjuna prayed to Krishna for help in controlling his mind. He lamented, “O Lord, the mind is very powerful and wayward.” Krishna replied, “Arjuna, if you practice detachment you will certainly be able to control your mind.”
