Understanding “Detachment”……-The Mundaka Upnishda

Understanding "Detachment"

Like two golden birds

Perched on the selfsame tree

Intimate, friends,

The ego and the self

Dwell in the same body.

The former eats the sweet

And sour fruits of the tree of life

While the latter looks on in detachment.

-The Mundaka Upnishda
