Non-attachment is true absense of desire
Disciple : Enjoyments come from desire alone. A man may live in a four-storied is true absence of mansion ; but he does not really enjoy anything if he has no desire for it. And a man may live under a tree, but if he has desire, he gets all enjoyments from that alone. The Master used to say, ” A person may have no relatives anywhere; but Mahamaya may cause him to keep a cat and thus make him worldly. Such is Her play ! ”
Mother : That’s true. Everything is due to desire. What bondage is there for a man who has no desire ? You see, I live with all these things, but I do not feel any attachment; no, not in the least.
Disciple: Indeed, you can have no desires. But how many insignificant disires crop up in our minds ! How can we get rid of them ?
