MIND : ITS MYSTERIES AND CONTROL : 25.5



Chapter 25 -Vairagya And Tyaga-5
5. Intense Vairagya Necessary For Moksha

There must be intense (Tivra) Vairagya in the minds of the aspirants, throughout the period of their Sadhana.
Mere mental adhesion will not do for success in Yoga.
There must be intense longing for liberation, a high degree of Vairagya plus capacity for Sadhana (spiritual practice).
Then only they will get Nirvikalpa Samadhi and Moksha.
It was only Raja Janaka and Prahlada who had Tivra Vairagya (intense dispassion).
This kind of Vairagya is necessary for quick realisation.
It is very difficult to cross the ocean of Samsara with a dull type of Vairagya.
The crocodile of sense-hankering (Trishna) for sense-enjoyments and sense-objects will catch the aspirants by the throat and, violently snatching away, will drown them half-way.
