All the worldly bonds are just feelings on certain forms.


The analysis of Maya revels that the unreal factors cause the real disturbance. All the worldly bonds are just feelings on certain forms. The bond (feeling) and the bonded (form) are found unreal on analysis. The form of a beautiful girl is unreal because the reality is only Matter. The glamour of shining is only a color generated based on certain frequency of the light energy. Thus, color is an unreal form of light.


The sweet love expressed by her is also unreal form of awareness. Therefore, the beautiful form of matter, the glamorous color of light and the sweet love of the awareness are totally unreal if isolated from their corresponding real matter, real light and real awareness. If this Maya is not analyzed, even a great sage like Viswamitra sitting in constant devotion to God is dragged out by the dancer from the heaven. Similarly, all the worldly bonds are only feelings established by some rigid social convention.


The bonds in this life did not exist in the previous birth and will not exist in the future birth. They are only temporary and hence unreal (Tat krutakamhi..Shankara). Reality is eternal. Once king Janaka asked the sages to tell about the previous birth of his queen. The sages kept silent for a long time. But the sages reveled the truth due to continuous pressure from Janaka. They told that the wife was his mother in the previous birth! Since the bond is unreal, neither she was mother nor is she the wife of Janaka. Mother and wife and son and husband are unreal bonds which are the unreal roles in the drama. Both are simply actors taking different unreal roles in different dramas to entertain the Lord. The relationship between the souls is only a colleague type only which is eternal in all the dramas (lives). Therefore, there is no meaning of kith and kin and the outsiders. All the souls are equally related to each other if the reality is realized. Hence, the entire world is a single family of God as its head (Vasudhaika Kutumbakam).
