Sloka 59

VISHAYA VINIVARTANTE NIRAHARASYA DEHINAHA
RASAVARJAM RASOPYASYA PARAM DRISHTVA NIVARTATE.

When a man rejects the sense objects by withdrawing the senses, he becomes free from the sense world only. Even his longing also is removed on intuiting on the Supreme.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

“Rasavarjam” is rejecting the sense objects as described in the previous verse and it does not remove the taste for the objective world. The word “rasa” in this sloka refers to the “taste” for the world of objects.

Realization of the “Absolute” will remove the “taste” for the world of objects. Unless one develops sraddha, bhakti on the “Supreme” and learns the art of “meditation” wherein the mind is made to concentrate on the “Supreme” it is impossible to experience “the Bliss.”
