In Ashtavakra you say to drop sense objects if you wish for freedom. Sometimes human values like compassion, love, etc., depend on sense objects. Should I drop this also?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

Yes, don’t hold on to anything, let go! Compassion and love is your nature, those will remain in you.

There is a saying in Hindi, ‘neki kar kue mein daal’.

If you think, ‘I am so good and everybody is bad’, that will make you sad. This attitude is what you should drop.
