Winning release from Maya (Part 1/3)

 

If you can only manage to give up subservience to the great attributes of Maya, which are kam, krodh, lobh-passion (lust), anger and greed-you thereby acquire something, some worthiness, some deservingness towards attainment of that great Goal of Truth.

For those who have no Spiritual Guide, they should take and repeat the name of God with real love. Those who, while living and working in the world and doing their duties towards their family and others at the same time always remember God and lead a pure and most virtuous life and in addition, who do not at all grieve, grumble, and complain at the loss of their wives and children and relatives but remain contented with this consolation, that all these were given by God at His Will and are taken by Him at His Will: such ones are no less worthy. Their preparedness and deserving are great indeed—certainly much more than those make-believe “sadhus” who wander here and there conferring their “blessing” on those that give them alms.

This mode of living (of those in the world who faithfully perform their duties) is for those who, while they remember God, have no Guru or Guide.
