….practice desirelessness ?
No need of practice. No need of any acts of renunciation. Just turn your mind away, that is all. Desire is mostly the fixation of the mind on an idea. Get it out of its groove by denying it attention

You are entangled in a web of verbal definitions and formulations. Go beyond your concepts and ideas; in the silence of desire and thought the truth is found.

….Just turn away, look between the thoughts, rather than at the thoughts. When you happen to walk in a crowd, you do not fight every man you meet – you just find your way between.

If you are earnest you don’t need moving about. You are yourself wherever you are and you create your own climate. Locomotion and transportation will not give you salvation. You are not the body and dragging the body from place to place will take you nowhere. Your mind is free to roam the three worlds – make full use of it.

Nisargadatta Maharaj, from the classic ‘I am That‘, p 212

Much is known to the heart that cannot be expressed, much that is almost entirely forgotten in the course of an education which concerns itself with learning to express quite other things. But one thing is certain, namely, that a river is most emphatically not just a river.

It is in the mind that birth and death, pleasure and pain, in short the world and ego exist. If the mind is destroyed all these are destroyed too. Note that it should be annihilated, not just made latent. For the mind is dormant in sleep. It does not know anything. Still on waking up, you are as you were before. There is no end of grief. But if the mind be destroyed the grief will have no background and will disappear along with the mind.

Bhagavan Sri Ramana Maharishi, from the classic, ‘Talks’, p 160
