” Why you think that you are a householder? Simaliary thought that you are a Sannyasin will haunt you even if you go out as one. Whatever you continue into the jungle or in the house, it is your mind that hunts you. The ego is the source of thought. It creates the body and the world and it makes you think that you’re a householder. if you renounce you will only substitute the thought of renunciation for that of householder. . if you renounce you will only substitute the thought of renounce for that of householder. but the mental obstacles are always there for you.they even increase greatly in the new surroundings. it is no help to change the environment. the one obstacle is the mind and it must be overcome whether in the home or in the jungle. if you can do in the jungle why not in the home? Therefore why change the environment? —–From ‘ Ramana Maharishi and the part of self-knowledge ‘ by Arthur Osborne.
