Renunciation (Vairagya) & Women | Sri Vinod Babaji Maharaj

  Sridhar Swami says in his commentary about the word ‘Vairagya’ (Renunciation) that one cannot get immersed in the contemplation of God and relish the divine bliss of His pastimes until he develops Vairagya (indifference to material world). Attachment to worldly possessions and people is the cause of impurity of heart that does not let the Jivatma achieve divine bliss. Vairagya means detachment, disinterest or indifference to body and everything related to it. One develops disinterest in body and material world when he realizes that everything in this world (including this body) is temporary; it didn’t exist before nor it will exist in future, it exists only in the present. Such a temporary thing can never give pleasure to the eternal Self. It only causes an illusion of pleasure to give disappointment in the future. Attachment to such things does not allow us to progress in bhajan and experience divine bliss. The master – servant relationship between God and the Jivatma is eterna

Sanatan Dharma | 9. Param Dharma Part - 3 | Sri Vinod Babaji Maharaj

  Sanatan Dharma is not for a specific group of people. It is the universal duty of every human on Earth to follow Sanatan Dharma. Animals cannot apprehend and perform actions of Dharma but only a human can. Therefore, the superiority of humans as a species on this Earth is due to the ability to deliberate oneself into following Dharma. What is Dharma? “Ahimsā Satyam Asteyam Saucham Indriya-nigrahah, Etam sāmāsikam Dharmam chaturvarnye abravīn Manuh.” (Manu Smriti 10.63) Meaning:  Non-violence, truth, abstinence from corruption, purity and sense-control – these are the essence of Dharma (duty) of all four castes, as declared by Maharaj Manu. This is the basic form or the foundation of Dharma. Beyond this, there is Param Dharma, which we have been discussing in the last two articles. The Jivatma must discover his relationship with God.
