Part 1: Exploring Abhyasa and Vairagya Copy

‘For an average man total surrender is not only difficult but an impossibility, which is why Patanjali insists on practice (abhyasa) and dispassion (vairagya). These two are like wings for the sadhaka to fly from the world of matter to the world of the spirit. Practice means doing the sadhana for long without interruptions, but with dedication and devotion, while renunciation is intended for us to learn to minimise physical wants and emotional desires, so that sooner or later, the sadhaka develops desirelessness of the world and becomes attached to the Supreme’
