Sathya Sai Baba

Today, the commodities available are limited, and desires are unlimited. As our wants and desires are increasing beyond availability, there is an economic imbalance in the world. Many people are attempting to fix this by increasing the availability of commodities. Instead, if people learn to curb their wants and desires, there is neither need for increase in effort nor expenditure. This aspect of decreasing our desires and wants is called ‘Vairagya’ (detachment) in scriptures. The word Vairagya does not mean that you should run away from your family, sit in a forest, close your nose and put yourself to physical torture. The true meaning of detachment (vairagya) is you must stay in the society, do your duties, and learn to contain your desires and wants. Our life is a long journey. In this long journey of life, make every effort to diminish your wants and desires. Practice of Vairagya also includes taking sufficient food, avoiding wastage.

- Summer Roses on Blue Mountains, 1976, Ch 15.

Humility can be built only on a foundation of charity and detachment. - Baba
