Essence : Desire a Bondage ~



Ashtavakra Gita - Chapter 10: Verse 4
अष्टावक्र गीता 10:4

तृष्णामात्रात्मको बन्धस्तन्नाशो मोक्ष उच्यते |
भवासंसक्तिमात्रेण प्राप्तितुष्टिर्मुहुर्मुहुः ||१०- ४||


Trishna is the only cause of bandhan (bondage). Moksha is the name of its
destruction. As soon as you become detached from the drishya-varga
(everything that is known by the senses) you start feeling fulfilled and
blissful.


The essential nature of bondage is nothing other than desire, and its elimination is known as liberation. It is simply by not being attached to changing things that the everlasting joy of attainment is reached.
