Hamta Mamta Ko Door Kare | Paltu Sahib
If you wish to fly free and unfettered in the pristine sky of pure self, relinquish your ‘me’ and ‘mine’, transcend desire, dispassion, thus says the great master Paltu Sahib in his profound verses beautifully sung by Anandmurti Gurumaa in this featured video. Explaining the significance of Paltu Sahib’s poignant yet joyful bhajan, Anandmurti Gurumaa explains how it is not desire per se which traps us – behind desire lurks the darkness of ignorance, the root cause of the problem. From this darkness has arisen the ego (hamta) and the attachment to ‘me’ and ‘mine’ (mamta). Just as a roasted seed cannot sprout but tastes all the more sweeter, a mind roasted in the searing fire of gyana becomes full of dispassion and detachment. Then it clings to nothing, sheds all labels, comes out of all duality and dwells in supreme equipoise. It has been drawn from the special retreat for seekers abroad, held at Rishi Chaitanya Ashram, in November 2013.
