The simple word is DETACHMENT and they explain as follows remembering their gurus's words of wisdom

“To spare oneself from grief at all cost can be achieved only at the price of total detachment, which excludes the ability to experience happiness”

“He who would be serene and pure needs but one thing, detachment.”

“Love is an attachment to another self. Humor is a form of self-detachment - a way of looking at one's existence, one's misfortune, or one's discomfort. If you really love, if you really know how to laugh, the result is the same: you forget yourself.”

“Living in solitude, eating lightly, controlling the thought, word, and deed; ever absorbed in yoga of meditation, and taking refuge in detachment.”-Bhagwad gita

“For a married woman, detachment from the father's clan is natural because she begins a totally new life with her husband, which is literally her second birth.”-Atharva Veda

“DETACHMENT is a plant of slow growth; if you pluck the tender plant to look for the pods, you will be disappointed.”-SaiBaba
