Yoga Vasishta on how to play your part in the world


Be outwardly active but inwardly inactive, outwardly a doer but inwardly a non-doer, and thus play your part in the world.

Abandon all desires inwardly, be free from attachments and latent impressions, do everything outwardly and thus play your part in world.

Adopt a comprehensive view, characterized by the abandonment of all objects of contemplation, live in your innate Self, liberated even while alive and thus play your part in the world.

Burn the forest of duality with the fire of the conviction, ‘I am the one Pure Consciousness’ and remain happy.
