Detachment has been explained as an effective tool in controlling the modifications of the Mind in the last sloka (1.15)
We do not get attached to the Routine actions we perform.
But actions we perform after deliberation?
Why and how we deliberate to perform an action and become attached to them.
We perceive an object , we get attracted.
We want to experience them because we are curious,others have told us it is pleasurable.
We try them out.
We find the experiences either pleasurable or painful.
Based on this we like or detest them.
In the case of the former , we yearn for them, recalling in the Mind the pleasures it had given us, just as vehemently we hate that which gave us pain.
This yearning becomes attachment:hate is also an attachment for irrespective of what your feelings are, you are constantly engaged with the object in your mind.
If you do not get what you seek, you take action to get it, these create further thought waves in the Mind.
So, to control these cravings one must cease attaching himself to objects.
But the fact is we can not help being attracted and consequently being attached to the Objects.
We might even consciously want to avoid them.
Why are we attracted to Objects?
It is Our Nature.
We have inborn tendencies and qualities that make us attracted to sense objects,
They are three in number.
Sathva,the Pure,Learned Ignorance,
These Gunas are present in all of us in combinations and they keep changing minute by minute.
Impelled by these Gunas we get attracted to sense objects and act.
Practice and Resolution, Vairagya can help us eradicate this,
By practicing this method, one develops Detachment.
This would also lead to Reality or Self Realization.
Seeking Self Realization is also a form of attachment and this must be discarded.
The conscious attempt at Liberation or Moksha is also a Bond, though a Golden one, bond nonetheless.
The desire to attain Moksha or liberation is an impediment to Spiritual Growth.
This also, has to be discarded. .
Praying to God and seeking Grace from Him is also an impediment.
So much so, the Chamaka Prasna of Sri Rudram, after seeking from Lord Rudra, says thus in Chamaka
Aayu yagnena kalpathaam praano yagnena kalpathaam apano, Yagnena kalpathaam yyano yagnena kalpathaam chakshur, yagnena kalpathaam srothram, yagnena kalpathaam mano, yagnena kalpathaam vag yagnena kalpathaam athma, Yagnena kalpathaam yagne, yagnena kalpathaam. 10 . " Let the fire sacrifice give me long life, Let fire sacrifice give me inhaled air, Let fire sacrifice give me exhaled air, Let fire sacrifice give me able eyes, Let fire sacrifice give me able ears, Let fire sacrifice give me able mind, Let fire sacrifice give me able words, Let fire sacrifice give me an able soul, Let fire sacrifice give me ability to perform more fire sacrifices ' "After seeking favors in all manners possible. the last portion, Yagne Yagna kalpatham' Means that the Yagnas may give the power to perform more yagnas. Yagna is different from Yaaga Yaaga is performed for results while Yagna is performed because it has to be performed, no results desired' Thus the Nishkaamya Karma is indicated here. Performed without attachment, even the desire to realize self is neutralized. This is what Patanjali says in Yoga Sutra 1.16.( After seeking... neutralized-by this writer, not a part of the Quote)

For them, Infinity is a Positive Concept as Darkness.
The absence of Infinity is Finite and the absence of Darkness is Light
The take things, as it were, as they are in their State.
So is their concepts of Numbers.
There are expressions ‘ettipparithal, jumping and fetching’
‘Ettak kani’ fruit that can not be got at.’
‘Ettaadhu’, can not be attained.
Hinduism has special attributes for Numbers.
Three, the three Nature of Man, Sathva,Rajas, Tamas, Three Energies, Potential, Kinetic and Potentio-kinetic(Srushti,Stihthi,Samhaara)
Four,The aspects or goals of Life, Purushaarthaas,Righteousness(Dharma), Artha(Wealth,) Desire (Kama) and Moksha(The Liberated State)
Six, six tastes.
Seven, Seven Notes of Music.
Eight, Eight special Powers of Yoga.
Beyond this nine becomes the number of the Nine planets.
They belong, not to the earth, hence beyond us.
The come the two digits.
Reaching Eight needs practice and is difficult to attain, Ashtamaa Siddhis.
What a thought process and what a language!
- The Science Of Love And Sex (ramanan50.wordpress.com)
See the video and decide for yourself.
Of late, number of charlatans ,criminals and sex starved abnormal/subnormal individuals cloak themselves in the garb of Gurus and bring disrepute to Hinduism.
These people know nothing about Hinduism and are cashing in on people’s insecurity .These people offer deliverance (Moksha),offer courses in Yoga ,that too in a matter of months,say that they can cure anything from Asthma to Alzheimer’s( in fact what they offer is nothing but aerobic exercises-they go to Asana and Pranayaama with out Yama and Niyama-none of them follow Patanjali’s Yoga Sutra).
Government should with draw facilities granted under income tax act for trusts formed by these people and audit their accounts by a no-non sense auditor and bring these people to book and they be awarded maximum punishment under Cr.PC.
People should know that Religion is a personal affair and one does not need jokers like these to realize God.If you seek a Guru, as enjoined in the Vedas, He shall come to you, if your hunger for him is intense.
None can nullify the fruits of your actions and you can not escape from the reactions that arise out of your actions;even God can not/will not help you.
If you are sincere, HE shall Bless you with Gyana ( Supreme knowledge) and provide you with Fortitude to face difficult times.
Do not be deluded by criminals and fraudsters.
