Non Attachment,Uttam Akchintaya

Uttam Akinchinya

uttam akinchinya can also be referred as : non-attachment 

this assists us in detaching from external possessions. historically ten possessions are listed in our scriptures:

• land                                        • house
• silver                                       • gold
• wealth                                    • grain
• female servants                    • male servants
• garments                               • utensils

remaining unattached from these helps control our desires and leads to an influx of punya karmas.this assists us in being unattached from our internal attachments: false belief, anger, pride, deceit, greed, laughter, liking, disliking, lamentation, fear, disgust, male sexual desire, female sexual desire and hybrid sexual desire. ridding the soul of these leads to its purification.
