Sannyas has to be a real break away. A loving surrender to the new....


My whole way is of let-go — and why bother? Once and for all, leave it to existence, and when existence does not need you, you will be absorbed into the universe.

There is no need every day to ask again and again — that is a kind of nagging.

I have done it once, and that's all. I will not do it twice, because to do it twice means that the first time you were not total; otherwise who is doing it again? Let-go can be done only once.

When I was a child we used to have many puzzles, and particularly we used to ask a teacher — who was a little dumb — simple things, and he would get into such a nervous state.

For example we used to ask him, "One man tried to commit suicide four times. Can you tell us when he succeeded? — the first time, the second time…. Which time did he succeed?"

And he would start thinking about it. He would say, "How should I know?" If a man succeeds then the last time is really the first time!

In my understanding, let-go is only once. If you need it again, that means the first time… whom were you deceiving? And what is the guarantee that the second time is not going to be just like the first?
Let-go is an understanding.

It is not something that you have to do.

It is not something that you have to say to existence; it is simply an understanding: "I will not swim against the current, because that is simply stupid." You are going to be tired soon, you can never be victorious against the current. Understanding that, you accept the current's way as your way.

That is let-go.

Now, wherever the river leads you… you don't have to check every day; you simply go with the river. Some day — any day — you may reach the ocean, you may disappear.
