BHAARO' VIVEKINAH SHAASTRAM BHAARO GYAANAM CHARAGINAH

ASHANTASYA MANO BHAARO BHAARO'NATMA VIDO VADUH

 

(Vairagya Martanda  5/10)

 

"To those unintelligent and indiscriminative people who consider the body to be  the self, the study of Vedic Holy Scriptures becomes a burden. For  people  who are engaged in and attached to  excessive sense  gratification,  true knowledge becomes a burden. Those who are not at peace with  themselves,  their mind is a burden. And for those who do not know their real identity, their soul becomes a burden for them."
