“Renunciation does not direct you towards God consciousness, attachment diverts you towards God consciousness. There must be love.”

~Swami Lakshmanjoo

“Renunciation does not direct you towards God consciousness, attachment diverts you towards God consciousness. There must be love.” ~Swami Lakshmanjoo

SWAMIJI: …actually renunciation does not direct you towards God consciousness, attachment diverts you towards God consciousness. There must be love. When there is love, attachment it will take you, carry you there, not renunciation.
What can you renounce?
You can‘t renounce your body, you can‘t renounce your hunger, you can‘t renounce your desires for thirst – everything is there. Only you will renounce Stephanie and roam on the shore of Ganges.
What have you renounced?
You are still eating there, you are still drinking there . . . what is renunciation?
So this is myth, this is fraud renunciation, this is not actually renunciation. Actual renunciation is when you renounce your body consciousness and get mixed in God consciousness. That is actual renunciation. And that comes through attachment . . . towards which?

JOHN: Towards God.

SWAMIJI: God, God. There must be love towards God consciousness.
