Freedom from all attachments is essential for union with God – Sadhu Vaswani

Freedom from all attachments is essential for union with God. The jiva must renounce attachment to money, possession, property, attachment to house, family, country, must renounce all earthly affection.

Private affections and preferences imprison the jiva.

Not merely must we resist running after vishayas, sense objects: we must have no relish for them. The will-to-live in God means the will to possess nothing, to have nothing, to be nothing. In being nothing, is the greatest blessing of the jiva.

Detachment is a sacrificial act: detachment means surrender of the little self. You may renounce wealth and comfort: but you do not practice detachment until you renounce the “ego.”
– Sadhu Vaswani
