The Siddha Goshti is Guru Nanakís dialogues with some sages. These sages had renounced the world and were living in caves in the Himalayas. They were yogis who believed in practising physical and mental exercises for the attainment of spiritual powers (siddhis), which would ultimately lead to moksha (liberation). These dialogues are a summary of Guru Nanakís views on life in general and spirituality in particular.While these ascetics asserted that one must withdraw from society and family to attain detachment, Guru Nanak said that attachment and detachment were a state of mind. You donít have to give up anything; you can achieve detachment right in the middle of the marketplace. In fact, true detachment is that which can remain unruffled even in the thick of temptations. The ascetics live away from society but are dependent on the men and women of the world for their survival. Guru Nanak said that all human beings must perform their duties and fulfill their responsibilities so as not to be a burden on society.Printed Pages: 134.
