3. Detachment Of The Enlightened Seclusive Sadhaka
This stage represents the culmination of genuine practice (Sadhana) of detachment. Now that all the attachments to the worldly objects, to
the family and even to one's own body have been severed completely,
the time is ripe for the Sadhaka to be merged in the practice of
transcendental meditation (Nirvikalpa Samadhi).
As an external, concurrent, and
collaborative means to achieve this end, the Sadhaka should devote
to and find more time for silence (Mauna), stay in
seclusion and meditation (Dhyana), in deep study and contemplation
of the subtle realities, and in adopt a very simple life. All these
constitute the various traits of the Sadhaka of this status.
Out of utter compassion, this great man
occasionally imparts his sublime teachings in the form of discourses
or initiates worth spiritual seekers in the path of self-control and
righteousness. Only these supreme Sadhakas, by their own
noble and firm efforts, attain to the Supreme State of
Self-realization (Omniscience) in due course of time.
