Guruji, what is the meaning of the word ‘Uparathi’?

‘Uparathi’ is a Sanskrit word which means ‘to be free from worldly things, desires and attachments’. It also means total renunciation of actions except actions that are necessities of life. Desires and attachments in life, invariably lead to sorrow. Unfulfilled desires and unreciprocated attachments bring about a string of negative emotions such as frustration, anger, sadness, jealousy, etc. It is easy for a sadhaka to exercise ‘Uparati’ – a total renunciation of actions. In this state, the sadhaka is able to discover an inner peace, and joyful silence.

The best ‘Uparati’ (self-withdrawal) is that condition of thought waves in which they are free from the influences of external objects. Through the practice of ‘Uparati’ some seekers have even attained Self-realisation.
