Kathopanishad - Episode 40

The power behind all the senses

One who walks on the spiritual path, who wants to attain the highest Truth should not depend on any external motivation to act. Most people are happy with the temporary distractions of life, and forget the very purpose or goal of their lives.
jñāna teaches us how to develop vairagya.  jñāna without vairāgya will result in one discriminating wrongly and potentially discarding the right things in life. vairāgya without jnana is like one who blindly follows/acts. jñāna tells one that from the temporary, permanent cannot be attained. vairāgya helps one discard all outward desires. 

The relationship between jñāna and vairāgya enables one to ultimate realise the Truth.
