"Self-realization is meant to ensure fulfilment for one’s own self. It is not reaching somewhere or getting at something external, like going to the peak of a mountain. The attainment is in dissolving the mind and intelligence, and getting into the very core of oneself. In other words, it is like multiplying everything with zero."

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.
