Quotes on Detachment

 

Real Detachment

The man who is pure of heart is bound to fulfil himself in whatever way he is taught. A worldly man seeks all his life, but is still bewildered. Detached from the senses, you are free. Attached, you are bound. When this is understood, you may live as you please.

Astavakra Gita 15:1-2

*

Those who conquer their minds are beings of renunciation and detachment. They are lovingly focussed on the True One, they realise and understand themselves.

Guru Nanak

*

O my mind, day and night, you are always full of wishful hopes. Serve the true Guru, and your emotional attachment shall be totally burnt away; remain detached within the home of your heart.

Sri Guru Granth Sahib

*

The essence of the way is detachment.

Bodhidharma

*

Love consists not in feeling great things but in having great detachment and in suffering for the Beloved.

St John of the Cross

Desire is the source of all attachment and choice the gift of detachment...


Detached action is unselfish work.

Bhagavad Gita (c. BC 400-, Sanskrit poem incorporated into the Mahabharata)


Those whose consciousness is unified abandon all attachment to the results of action and attain supreme peace. But those whose desires are fragmented, who are selfishly attached to the results of their work, are bound in everything they do.

Bhagavad Gita (c. BC 400-, Sanskrit poem incorporated into the Mahabharata)


The essence of the Way is detachment.

Bodhidharma (a Buddhist monk, lived during 5-6AD, traditionally credited as the transmitter of Zen to China)


To spare oneself from grief at all cost can be achieved only at the price of total detachment, which excludes the ability to experience happiness

Erich Fromm (1900-1980, German born American social Philosopher and Psychoanalyst)


When you learn not to want things so badly, life comes to you.

Jessica Lange (1949-, American actress)


By letting it go, it all gets done. The world is won by those who let it go. But when you try and try the world is beyond the winning.

Lao-Tzu(BC 600-?, Chinese philosopher, founder of Taoism)


He who would be serene and pure needs but one thing, detachment.

 

Meister Eckhart (1260-1326, German mystic)

Meister Eckhart (1260-1326, German mystic)

 

When you become detached mentally from yourself and concentrate on helping other people with their difficulties, you will be able to cope with your own more effectively. Somehow, the act of self-giving is a personal power-releasing factor.

Norman Vincent Peale

 

Detached action is unselfish work.

Bhagavad Gita (c. BC 400-, Sanskrit poem incorporated into the Mahabharata)

 

I believe that the man who observes self-control in thought, word and deed, right in the midst of the world, is verily the true ascetic. If things do not bind us and if we are not attached to things even when they are easily available to us that according to me is the greatest test of our detachment than merely withdrawing to a lonely forest.

Mahatma Gandhi

 

Love is an attachment to another self. Humor is a form of self-detachment — a way of looking at one’s existence, one’s misfortune, or one’s discomfort. If you really love, if you really know how to laugh, the result is the same: you forget yourself.

Claude Roy quotes

 

Detachment means to remove one’s mind from all sorts of desires. As the mind is removed from desires, the energy that was being destroyed in running after these desires is saved and it becomes a flame.

Osho Quotes

 

The essence of the Way is detachment.

Bodhidharma (a Buddhist monk, lived during 5-6AD, traditionally credited as the transmitter of Zen to China)

 

Love consists not in feeling great things but in having great detachment and in suffering for the Beloved.

St. John of the Cross quotes (Christian mystic and poet, 1542-1591)

 

Living in solitude, eating lightly, controlling the thought, word, and deed; ever absorbed in yoga of meditation, and taking refuge in detachment.

Bhagavad Gita quotes

 

Those whose consciousness is unified abandon all attachment to the results of action and attain supreme peace. But those whose desires are fragmented, who are selfishly attached to the results of their work, are bound in everything they do.

Bhagavad Gita (c. BC 400-, Sanskrit poem incorporated into the Mahabharata)

 

DETACHMENT is a plant of slow growth; if you pluck the tender plant to look for the pods, you will be disappointed.

Sri Sathya Sai Baba quotes (Indian Spiritual leader, b.1926)

 

When you learn not to want things so badly, life comes to you.

Jessica Lange (1949-, American actress)

 

To spare oneself from grief at all cost can be achieved only at the price of total detachment, which excludes the ability to experience happiness

Erich Fromm (1900-1980, German born American social Philosopher and Psychoanalyst)
