The secret of renunciation is the renunciation of egoism, mineness and desires. Abandoning wife, children, property, house, relations and friends does not constitute real renunciation. Objects do not bind you. It is mineness ( Mamata ) that binds you to this Samsara or cycle of births and deaths.

Past, present and future are all relative. Present becomes past. Future becomes present. Present alone is real. Live always in the Present.

Those who have realized that the sensual pleasures of this world are transitory, illusory, hollow and worthless are fit for the spiritual path.

You are Eternal, All-prevading Atman in reality. You are Pure Consciousness Itself. Mind is a mere beggar. It borrows its ligth and intelligence from the Inner Ruler, the Atman that is self-effulgent, just as the iron row borrows its heat and effulgence from fire. Mind is non-intelligent, but appears to be intelligent by borrowing light from Brahman, just as water exposed to the sun borrows heat from the sun.

Withdraw the senses, look within and search your heart. Dive deep into the deepest recess of your heart through deep meditation on the Innermost Self. You will doubtless realise your identity with Brahman and get to the heart of the Infinite joy and Bliss.

The one thought " I am the Immortal Self will neutralize all evil forces, the evil influences of all malevolent planets and will infuse in you courage and inner spiritual strength. Wrong thinking is the root-cause of all human suffering. Cultivate right thinking and right action. Work unselfishly in terms of unity with Atma-Bhava. This is right action. T he right thinking is when you think : I AM THE IMMORTAL SELF.

Owing to ignorance you have mistaken the physical body for the Self and this is all the mistake you have committed. But it is a serious mistake indeed. By changing your mental outlook, by purifying your heart and intellect , you can attain Knowledge of Self.

The objects seen in the waking state are as real as the objects seen in the dreaming state. All objects are unreal. The witnessing subject only is real and eternal. Life is a waking dream. How can a thing which changes be eternal and real ?

If you wish to obtain God-realization , the control of the unruly emotions is of paramount importance. Do not identify yourself with your emotions. By this non-identification, the spirit of detachment is achieved.

The Yogic student should not possess much wealth as it will drag him to worldly temptations. He may keep a small sum to get the wants of the body. Economical independence is of paramount importance to an aspirant; because it will relieve him from anxieties and will enable him to continue his practices uninterruptedly.
