Transcript: Vairagya means. It is not, Vairagya does not mean giving up your life and going somewhere. There's nowhere to go, unless you go with that guy, outer space. They're going to send you out with a one-way ticket I believe. Otherwise, where is there to go? Wherever you go, it's still life, isn't it? So, Vairagya means this. Literally means, Vairagya means beyond colour. That means you become transparent. If you're transparent, every dimension of life can pass through you. But leaves you untouched. You can handle life to the extent you wish. What you can handle, you handle. What you cannot handle, you don't. But, in your life, if you do not do what you cannot do, that's not an issue. But if you do not do what you can do, you're a disaster. The moment you think something is good, something is bad, somebody is high, somebody is low, many many things that you can do, you will not do in your life. Simply because you think it's bad. Simply because you think it's low, or high, or whatever nonsense. So in our lives, it is most important, because it's a brief life. It's a limited amount of time for the human potential to flower. In this life, here if you're choosing what to do and what not to do, no. Everything that you can do, must happen. What you cannot do, it doesn't happen, it's okay. Right now this is the problem, you're looking up to some people, looking down on some people, and trying to be humble with them. There's no need to be humble. Treat everybody as rough as you treat yourself. That is, if you're treating yourself rough. If you're pandering to yourself, try with others. Then you'll get tired, then you'll treat them rough anyway. Yes? So, this is simple. Never look up to anybody, never look down at anybody. Just see everything the way it is. This is the fundamental of this culture. If you go to the temple, what do you do? What do you do? If you ever go to the temple, what do you do? Namaskaram. You see a man, what do you do? Namaskaram. You see a woman, what do you do? Namaskaram. You see a tree, what do you do? Namaskaram. You see a rock, what do you do? Namaskaram. Akka, snake, donkey, monkey. Everybody namaskaram. Because, fundamentally this is what it means. This is called Vairagya.
