If bond with money is entirely cut, all bonds with the world is cut


Saktuprastha sacrificed the little food obtained in drought after long starvation for several days. That littlie food was equal to the infinite gold mountain for him and his family members in that situation. The family members including himself will die if that little food was not eaten. In such situation, God came as beggar and Saktuprastha sacrificed the entire food. That little food was treasure of infinite wealth for him and his family members at that time. The food was earned by him with lot of effort and work, which was the process of begging. Therefore, that food was the fruit of his work and the sacrifice of that food was the sacrifice of the fruit of his entire work (sarvakarmaphalatyagam... Gita). By the sacrifice of that infinite treasure of wealth, he proved that he is beyond the bonds of family and also beyond the bond to himself.


If that food is sacrificed, not only his family members but also he will die. The bond to himself(atmeshana), the bond to his life(praneshana), the bond to his body(deheshana), the bond to his wife(dareshana), the bond to his children(putreshana) are condensed in that food or wealth. Therefore, if the bond with money is entirely cut, all the bonds with the world including yourself are automatically cut. If the root is cut, the falling tree is cut. Each bond need not be tested separately. The one bond with the money is sufficient for the test. If money is sacrificed partially, the bonds are partially cut. If the money is sacrificed completely, all the bonds are completely cut, which is the total salvation.
