How To Get Vairagya

(Remember these seven vital points)

  • Hari Om, Sensual pleasure is momentary, deceptive, illusory and imaginary.
  • A mustard of pleasure is mixed with a mountain of pain.
  • Enjoyment cannot bring about satisfaction of a desire. On the contrary it makes the mind more restless after enjoyment through intense craving (Trishnas and Vasanas).
  • Sensual pleasure is an enemy of Brahma-Jnana
  • Sensual pleasure is the cause for birth and death.
  • This body is nothing but a mass of flesh, bone, and all sorts of filth.
  • Place before the mind the fruits of Self-realization or life in the soul or Brahman or the Eternal, such as Immortality, Eternal bliss, Supreme peace and Infinite knowledge. If you remember the seven points always, the mind will be weaned from the cravings for sensual pleasures. Vairagya, Viveka and Mumukshutva (dispassion, discrimination from the real and the unreal, and keen longing for liberation from birth and death) will dawn. You should seriously look into the defects of sensual life (Dosha-Drishti) and into the unreal nature of worldly life (Mithya-Drishti).
Read this once daily as soon as you get up from the bed.

(Swami Sivananda)

Nagaraj garu - Not directly relevant. But For almost a year now - I wake up with one and only sloka in mind. And that is the most beautiful and inspiring sloka I have ever heard - especially the first two lines is enough to make me feel ecstatic :) .

Dear sanjaya_ganesh,

Sri Bhagavan says Vairagyam is where the mind does not go after anything. Jnanam is where mind does not see anything,
other than Brahaman. Both are the same. (Who am I?)

Arunachala Siva.
