"Devotion is a means as well as its true end when it grows into a full treasure. When devotion becomes a treasure, you will need nothing more for inner fullness or affluence. As devotion grows, it will begin to free you of all desire, hatred and fear. It will relieve poverty, either by making you amply resourceful or by taking away from you the very feeling of poverty. Devotion also will remove your weakness, generating untold strength and confidence."

Effort at Self-realization has no meaning unless the seeker has ample measure of dispassion (vairagya) towards the objects of the world. Dispassion does not imply either hate or intolerance towards anything. It denotes constant awareness that all things of the world are perishable and hence cannot be the lasting source of joy or friendship. Such awareness will strengthen the quest for the Self. In the absence of dispassion the yearning for the Imperishable Self can at best be like a picture drawn on water.
