From Discourse II: "Sadhana Pada- On Spiritual Disciplines"
II.39. APARIGRAHA-STHAIRYE JANMA-KATHAMTA-SAMBODHAH
'When non-acquisitiveness is established, an understanding of the purpose of birth is gained.'
When the yogi no longer desires to have possessions he frees himself from the material world. This gives him a perspective of the purpose of his birth, both in this lift and in past ones. He gains comprehension of the law of Karma and understands what lessons remain to be learned before attaining Realization.
