Rishi Chintan (ॠषि चिंतन)
Meaning of Liberation
(मुक्ति का अर्थ)
Liberation means to be
free free from bondage. We must deliberate on the true meaning of the
bondage – we are not literally tied up, needless to say. So what is this
bondage that we seek to free ourselves from?
These shackles are the
ones of our own flaws and negative tendencies such as self-centered
thinking, narrow mindedness, anger, egoism, greed, and attachment.
Weakness of one’s inner self is the biggest bondage. We can attain
Liberation in this life, right here and starting right now, by
redefining our perspective. We don’t have have to wait
