Cultivating Vairagya: The Practice of Non-Attachment

Swami Brahmananda


We are all looking for happiness, but according to the teachings of yoga, we usually fail to obtain it because we are looking in the wrong place. We keep thinking that by attaining more wealth, more enjoyments, more object, we will become happy. But Yoga teaches us that happiness is within us, that happiness is our own nature. That the way to gain it is to let go of our attachments to external objects, our aversions, fears, and false identifications. By letting go of the false, we are left with the Truth, with our own essential nature, which is pure love and pure bliss. Join us as Swami Brahmananda, the Yoga Retreat’s acting director, shares with us the secrets of the practice of non-attachment
