MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 25.10.2



Chapter 25 -Vairagya And Tyaga-10.2
10.Sannyasa-a Mental State-2

Shave the mind.
Someone asked Guru Nanak, "O saint, why have you not shaved your head? You are a Sannyasin."

Guru Nanak replied, "My dear friend, I have shaved my mind." In fact, the mind should be cleanly shaved. Shaving the mind consists in getting rid of all sorts of attachments, passions, egoism, Moha (infatuation), lust, greed, anger, etc.

This is the real shaving.
External shaving of the head has no meaning so long as there is internal craving, Trishna.

Many have not understood what true renunciation is.
Renunciation of physical objects is no renunciation at all.

The real Tyaga (renunciation) consists in the renunciation of egoism (Ahankara). If you can renounce this Ahankara, you have renounced everything else in the world.

If the subtle Ahankara is given up, Dehadhyasa (identification with the body) automatically goes away.
