Try to be above desires of any sort

A stout, robust sadhu approached Baba, begging for money to go to Hardwar by train. Baba said:

The meaning of a sadhu is one who performs spiritual practices with the object of controlling the mind. But since you are unable to keep your mind under control, what do you expect to gain by going to Hardwar? If you want to go into the Himalayas overpowered with love for God, then go on foot enduring hardships for the sake of realizing God. This will be your sadhana [spiritual practice] and thereby you will be able to conquer your mind from its thoughts of worldly allurements. A sadhu should always try to be above desires of any sort., p792
March, 1927; Meherabad
