True emancipation is through inner detachment – Sadhu Vaswani

Wisdom may lead to rigid isolation in a cave or forest, when what is needed is not outer but inner detachment from the maya of life, the shadow-shapes of things which come and go. This inner attachment is his who does not run away from life but girds himself for the battle of life, for work, for action.

True emancipation, is not through a forced isolation from life, but through inner detachment from the lower impulses and appetites, from trishnas and carvings of ego.

The mind is, so often, united to the senses. The mind must transcend the senses and be united with the buddhi.

Mind should be purified through selfless action and through inner detachment.
