To understand fearlessness…
WE NEED TO KNOW FEAR.
Experienced by rich and poor alike…
fear or fearlessness has no relation to
the quantity of our possessions.
Arising from different sources…
o Losing something – tangible or intangible
o The unknown – what does the future hold?
o Public opinion – what will people say?
Fear of loss is rooted in attachment.
Attachment is the feeling of…
incompleteness in the absence of a thing.
NO ATTACHMENT…NO FEAR
If attachment leads to fear of loss…
dispassion leads to fearlessness.
Fear comes from doing what is prohibited
or CONVERSELY failing to do what we ought to do.
Therefore perform your duty and be fearless.
This is the fearlessness to strive for…
A step HIGHER we should not instil fear in others.
There may be some who are fearless themselves…
BUT feared by others.
A Sanyasi is not in competition with anyone
THEREFORE no one is afraid of him.
While taking the vows of renunciation
the renunciate proclaims…
“I AM NOT AFRAID (of you) and you
need not be AFRAID OF ME !”
This is true fearlessness.
For progress in any field material or spiritual…
