A conqueror of attachment like Baba

Baba says, ‘Just as You are the Conqueror of Attachment, so we will become the same‘. Baba is the complete Conqueror of Attachment.

Is BapDada free from attachment?, teases Baba. Actually, BapDada has even greater pure attachment than the children, but there is a difference between BapDada and the children. When BapDada has pure attachment He is still free from attachment, whereas when children have pure attachment they become an embodiment of some form; they either become loving or they become detached. However, BapDada becomes both loving and detached at the same time. When this difference that remains is finished, you will become introverted, avyakt and alokik. Now there is still some feeling of being worldly mixed in but when this difference is finished you will be seen as completely non-worldly and introverted, angels! You can become angels even while staying in this corporeal world, He points out. Children now have to reveal the results of their study to others.

That is the essence of the 18 chapters of the Gita – that God made Arjuna a conqueror of attachment and an embodiment of remembrance. This is the final stage, the stage of being equal to Father Brahma.

No matter how deep the love of Father Brahma was for the children, he didn’t have an attachment with them, just love in his heart. The children experienced how much Baba used to remember them, those who were the instruments for service. He remembered them with a lot of love, but He did not have attachment. What is the difference? The difference, Baba explains, is that attachment is inherently selfish, love is pure. Brahma Baba didn’t have any selfish motives but he did have deep love for the children in the name of service. Even while living together and while seeing the children in front of him, no remembrance of any bodily form harassed him. He was completely detached and loving. This is why it is said: Conqueror of attachment and embodiment of remembrance. He had no consciousness of “mine” about anything or anyone, he never imposed his will over anyone; he even became free from attachment to the consciousness of the body.

The children say: ‘Just as You are the Conqueror of Attachment, so we will become the same’.

And so Baba teaches, ‘you will become a conqueror of attachment when you too renounce the consciousness of’ ‘mine”. The promise you made when you came, Baba reminds me, is ‘I belong to You, and so everything belongs to You’. This was your first promise, He says. So then, where did the consciousness of ‘mine’ come from?, He asks and then points out, ‘you mix mine with Yours’. Even though you said, ‘Whatever You say, that we will do. Whatever You feed us … , wherever You make us sit.. ..’,you forget this promise, He says. Baba is making you sit in the subtle region, so why do you come into the corporeal region? Baba did not say: ‘Sit in the corporeal region!’ He said, ‘Whilst being in the corporeal world, remain avyakt’.

Have you fully surrendered or have you kept a part to yourself, He asks. The meaning of surrender is very great. Nothing of mine remains in that. When you surrender, you surrender the body, mind and wealth. Since you have surrendered your mind, how can you create the thoughts that you wish to? How can you perform sinful actions through the body? This shows that you gave it to Baba and then took it back. Since you have given your body, mind and wealth, you have received shrimat about what you should have in your mind, and you have also received shrimat about what you have to do through your body. You know what you have to do with your wealth as well. You have to follow the directions of the One to whom you have given everything. What will be the stage of one who has given his mind? Manmanabhav. His mind will be fixed on the One. He will never forget this mantra. Can there be attachment in someone who is always in the stage of manmanabhav?, He asks.

So, in order to become a conqueror of attachment, simply remember your promises.
