PROGNOSIS & DIAGNOSIS OF SIN | IWGR I | RAMA राम

|| 4 | ATTACHMENT ||

We come now to the phenomenon of attachment or grief .

What is the cause of attachment , which means that the person subject to this evil wants that the things around one should not change ?

One is filled with sorrow and anxiety at the death of a loved one . What does this sorrow or anxiety show ? What does it prove ?

Can we expect conditions to remain as they are ; can we expect to keep our loved ones always with us , when we know intellectually that everything in this world is changeful , is in a state of flux ?

And yet we wish that there should be no change, how is it ?

Vedanta says , " O human , in you there is something which is really unchangeable , which is the same yesterday , today and for ever , but by mistake , by ignorance , the unchangeable nature of the true Self is ascribed to the circumstances of the body .

That is the cause of it . Eradicate ignorance and you stand above worldly attachments . "
