Affectionate Detachment

A cyberspace devotee from Luxemborg wants Gurudeva to give him some practical examples of affectionate detachment and how it can help him in his daily life. Gurudeva says many people are attached to their body, emotions, intellect and past but if you realize that you have a body and it is yours then you simultaneously realize that you are not your body. Therefore be affectionately detached from your body and live in it.

This is the straight and certain path, the San Marga, leading to Self Realization--the inmost purpose of life--and subsequently to moksha, freedom from rebirth.
