The Bhagavad Gita and detachment

In the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna had answered to Arjuna about the nature of a man who has attained to steady wisdom. Whose mind is not agitated in adversity who is free from desire, and who is devoid of attachments fear and anger -such a person is called a sage of steady wisdom. According to Buddha and Lord Krishna, desire is the root course of your sadness. Bhagavath Gita said that, don’t be attached to anything. Attachment and affair are sadness.

Yada samharate cayam
Kurmo ngani via sarvasah
Indriyani ndriyarthebhyas
Tasya prajna pratisthita

When a person can withdraw his senses from their objects just like the tortoise its limbs on all sides, his wisdom is firmly set. Detachment is the ruling power of your own mind.
