Loya-16: Worldly Desires Becoming Blunt and Uprooted

Summary

  1. Worldly desires [vāsanā]:
  1. If worldly desires have not become blunt, then the vruttis of the indriyas will cling to the vishays and will not dislodge even by a thought process.
  2. If worldly desires have become blunt, then the vruttis of the indriyas will not enter the vishays immediately; and if they do, they can be withdrawn by a thought process.
  3. If worldly desires have become completely uprooted, then one is oblivious to the vishays during the waking state just as he is during deep sleep; and one would behave as one who is gunātit.
  1. One who has dharma, gnān, vairāgya, and bhakti, his desire for worldly pleasures becomes completely uprooted.
  2. One who has bhakti toward God coupled with the knowledge of His greatness, then:
  1. All his flaws are eradicated.
  2. He attains all of the virtues, such as gnān, vairāgya, etc.
  3. That spiritual endeavour is the greatest of all endeavours.
  1. One can discern the deceit of a deceitful person by knowing the company [i.e. company of an antagonist of Satsang] he keeps and how he behaves during adverse circumstances.
  2. By spiting a devotee of God and by believing God to be formless, all of one’s virtues become faults.
  3. The nature of an egotist:
  1. He perceives faults in a sādhu.
  2. If someone praises him, even though that person may have a hundred faults, he would highlight a single virtue. Conversely, if a person does not praise him, then even though that person may have a hundred virtues, he would highlight an utterly insignificant fault and he would spite that person mentally, verbally, and physically as well.
  1. How to eradicate ego: Thoroughly understanding the greatness of God and the Sant.
