[gita-talk] What does 'placing reliance' mean ?


It has been said :  it is only by placing reliance on a thing, that one's  subservience (captivity, bondage) arises,  it makes him dependent, and bound to inertness and feeling of lacking.   

What do the words in the preaching -  आश्रय लेने से (placing reliance) mean? Is placing reliance an action,  or is it a sentiment (bhaav),  or is it a thought,  or is it faith,  or what is it ?   

Please explain in such a way,  that the saying is understood and retained as the words are intended .




कहा है : आश्रय लेने से ही वस्तुओं की दासता उत्पन्न होती है, जो मानव को पराधीनता, जड़ता एवं अभाव में आबद्ध करती है। 
कथनमें कहे गये शब्दों - आश्रय लेने से - से क्या तात्पर्य है? आश्रय लेना क्रिया है या भाव है या विचार है या विश्वास है या फिर क्या है?
कृपया ऐसे समझायें कि समझकर कथन उसके अभीष्ट अर्थोंमें धारण हो जाय।
