Unless this ignorance does not change, till then this living being can not give up affection, delusion and attachment, etc., towards body and auspicious-inauspicious feelings being produced by them, can not realize the reality of the soul.
Practically ,wc regard the soul and the body identical existing together but when we talk about to get pure element then we will have to see both as separate entity, just as the water is mixed in the milk. For separating the water from the milk we are required to give it heat of the fire, and as the portion of water will go on evaporating. The ‘Khoaa wbecome ready.
You will have to lose something forgetting something , similarly there is infinite store of virtues, and power with in the soul. The attachment-aversion, etc., feelings go on reducing by the fire of meditation and this very is the journey from behavioural conduct to the absolute perception.
Those who are intoxicated by wealth, do not listen to the beneficial, if at all, they do listen, they do not understand it. if they do understand, they do not follow it and if per chance, they follow it. they do not attain perfectation in their endeavour.
