031 – Qualities of a True Disciple – Dispassion | Swamini Ma Gurupriya

1650 Views | 3 years ago

The picture of a true disciple continues to become more vibrant and alive as Ma Gurupriya discusses the fundamental quality of vairagya (dispassion). Without dispassion, receiving this Knowledge is like having “milk poured into a vessel made of dog’s skin”. Whatever we learn from these Satsangs is of no use unless we make sincere efforts to look into ourselves, find out what virtues we lack and which traits get us in trouble, then do whatever is necessary to improve ourselves.

We constantly seek gratification from the objective world. All worldly gains, whether tangible like loved ones or material wealth, or subtle like appreciation and consideration, are flimsy and cannot be relied upon for permanent happiness. We have to free ourselves of our delusion with the sword of dispassion. Only then can we progress towards the abode of eternal peace and fearlessness, guided by our loving Spiritual Masters.
