The only method by which you can get out of this mad world is by turning inward – Swami Chinmayananda

Renunciation is not to be construed as mere physical retirement from the activities of the world, but it is measured by the disinterest that an individual bears for the world at the mental level. It is a state of mind.
True renunciation can be developed through constant practice of right living, devotion, and scriptural studies.
TURN INWARD! This is the only method by which you can get out of this mad world!
Sit down and consciously withdraw your mind as though in sleep and experience that stage where there is no object, emotion or thought. That conscious "sleep" is called Samadhi.
The disease of life is called the perception of plurality. This is caused by a very powerful germ called ‘ego’ or separative idea. This thrives on the mind and the intellect. Swami Chinmayananda
