    The nature of Worldly Bonds Vs Pious Bond with God

    The worldly bonds are found blind and foolish on analysis compared to the pious bond with God. The essence of all the worldly bonds is only the love on the means to achieve selfish happiness as per the statement of the Veda and the Gita (Atmanah kamaya…, ye hi samsparshajah...). Any soul in the world loves the other soul for the fact that the other soul is an instrument in giving self-happiness. If the other soul is giving constant worry, enmity and hatred replace the love.

    The medium of happiness is always money. Among these worldly bonds, the wealth linked with children is strongest. You can find the two extreme ends of this aspect in Dhrutarashtra and in the parents of Siriyala. Dhrutarashtra could not give even five villages even though God is directly asking. This is a climax of blind love on children linked with wealth. On the other hand the parents of Siriyala killed their son to satisfy the desire of a devotee. The bond with God is excellent and is beyond words, if properly analyzed. He has given human birth, long life, wealth, family etc., inspite of your most undeserving file of qualities. Still you say that this favor is done to many souls in common way. If you analyze your previous life, there are several miraculous experiences in which God rained undue favor on you. If you are a real human being, tears should flow down.

    If you remove the layer of ignorance on which you are dancing, you will be surprised to know that yourself and all your beloved souls including your materials are just the modifications of His power only. Infact, there is no real meaning of your sacrifice. It is only an apparent test of your practical love towards God. It is only a test of your attitude and feelings towards God because in the basic reality you have neither gained anything from the world nor lost anything through sacrifice to God. Infact you have lost your things through sacrifice to the other souls, who exploited you as means for their selfish happiness and do not even recognize you in the upper world. You are doing even sins like corruption, looting good devotees etc., for the sake of your so-called beloved souls.

    The illusion of your ignorance about the true spiritual knowledge is so strong that you are as blind as Dhrutarashtra in failing to show the practical love to God even after recognition. You cannot even dream about the word “salvation”. Your first step should be to catch Sadguru, who will give sight to your eyes through the surgery of preaching the spiritual knowledge. If you climb this first step, the final fruit is spontaneous since His spiritual knowledge is an escalator. The spiritual success of Hanuman is simply due to the Sadguru, Sun, caught by him. Hanuman learnt the spiritual knowledge from Sun who is the radiator of the intelligence or the analytical faculty as said in Veda. Hanuman adjusted himself to the convenience of Sadguru in receiving the spiritual knowledge by moving his face constantly in circular way.

    All this means that you should take all the pains in receiving the spiritual knowledge from Sadguru. The Sun represents the Sadguru and radiation represents the spiritual knowledge. Arjuna saw Krishna as thousands of Suns in the cosmic vision. Krishna said that His first student was Sun. This means that Krishna (God) is thousands of liberated souls in spiritual knowledge. This means that Hanuman received the knowledge – cassette of God from His student and developed to such highest state! Arjuna heard the knowledge directly from God, but he forgot Gita by the end of the war and asked Krishna to repeat it. Therefore, some devotees who have heard the knowledge directly from Me ask Me to repeat it by next day. Some devotees might have read My books given by My devotees and may reach the state of Hanuman.

    Therefore, the Samskara or the level of maturity of the receiver is responsible for the success finally. All hear the same spiritual knowledge from Sadguru, but a few only succeed and this is due to their level of maturity attained already. Both the quality of the spiritual knowledge and the maturity of the receiver are important. The drop should be a water drop and the receiver should be the pearl shell to form a pearl. A conch shell cannot make the water drop into pearl. Similarly, a particle of dust fallen in the pearl shell also cannot become the pearl.

    World bonds are easy to overcome when one realizes Who they give up these bonds for, in the end. It doesn't mean there can be no connection as we dwell on this earth, but that the only thing unbreakable for us is the bond, faith, and devotion we share with the one who died on the tree as a sacrifice for our sins, and who taught us to believe in the Heavenly works which He showed us as well as His resurrection from the dead which was for our redemption.

    That should be something never given up by the faithful, but kept in faith and works til one is called home. Blessings!:)
