What is the second technique of vairagya (detaching) specifically about? As in Buddhism, the purpose of detachment (1.15) is to stop the cravings. Detachment is about dropping our attachments (clinging/desires). It sounds good, but again the reader must ask, how do we actually do this?
Several interpretations are possible. One interpretation is that the same methods used for abhyasa (repetitive practice – see above 1.33-39) can by used to achieve vairagya (detachment).
