Grow Wealth by Renunciation


Satsang – 1-3 February, 2015

ईशावास्यमिदग्ं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् ।
तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्यस्विद्धनम् ॥१॥
कुर्वन्नेवेह कर्माणि जिजिविशेच्छतग्ं समाः ।
एवं त्वयि नन्यथेतो’स्ति न कर्म लिप्यते …

īśāvāsyamidagṃ sarvaṃ yatkiñca jagatyāṃ jagat ।
tena tyaktena bhuñjīthā mā gṛdhaḥ kasyasviddhanam ॥1॥
kurvanneveha karmāṇi jijiviśecchatagṃ samāḥ ।
evaṃ tvayi nanyatheto’sti na karma lipyate

The most ancient Upanishad, Isavasya Upanishad, declares the ultimate Truth – By renouncing again and again, enjoy the whole Cosmos. This is the secret of vairāgya or renunciation – Anything removed from your life cannot make you powerless. This gives the strength to understand the fundamental powerful cognition of life,  “Anything can be removed from me; I will not become powerless, I will not become depressed, I will not lose anything, I will not be lost, I may not even remember that I had that in my life!”
