Renunciation of Attachment is Unnecessary

All through our religious history, we've been told to give up the things of this world, to renounce our desires and attachments. "It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God..."

But you don't have to give up desire. Just meet the one who desires. You don't have to renounce your attachments, just get acquainted with the one who is attached. The radiance of your own pure awareness is more blissful than any experience your awareness could cling to.

With the fragrance of the Self, desire for the petals of the non-Self falls away naturally. Contentment arises through the agency of no other. Contentment has no content, but is consciousness alone.

This attrition of desire and attachment happens gradually over 7000 lifetimes, but the process is accelerated a thousand-fold by the practice of Transcendental Deep Meditation. Through the Master's grace, meditation grants unalloyed experience of ananda, the bliss-nectar of pure Being. Jai Guru Dev.
