Worldly bonds Vs bond to God

Worldy bonds weakens the service to God


Unless you are relieved from the worldly bonds, you cannot be relieved from the tensions and also you cannot attach yourself to God completely. If you are attached to the worldly bonds, your attachment to God becomes impossible since the worldly bonds prevail over your bond to God. Generally, we pray God for the welfare of worldly bonds only. It means your bond to God is never stronger than the worldly bonds. Hence, your attachment to God cannot be the strongest bond. Therefore, in the absence of the worldly bonds, your bond to God does not face this problem of competition, in which your bond to God is always likely to fail. Moreover, your worldly bonds always bring problems and tensions.


If something happens to your parents or wife or husband or children, you will be always disturbed. When you are disturbed, you will lose energy and become weak. In such condition, you can never serve God effectively. Therefore, in the presence of worldly bonds, not only your bond to God becomes weak but also your service to God becomes ineffective. Therefore, Hanuman and Shankara avoided these worldly bonds in the beginning itself by not getting married since prevention is always better than cure. Both left their mothers and came out to be involved in the service of God forever. Both of them have perfect fore-sight to avoid the possibility of problem in the beginning itself.




But, God likes you to be present in the worldly bonds and your bond to God should prevail over the other worldly bonds. Victory over the existing opposite force is always appreciable. If the opposite force is absent, it cannot be called as victory. Gopikas were completely immersed in the worldly bonds with their husbands and children. In spite of the strong opposite forces, they could run after Krishna and this is the victory over the existing opposite forces. When Parikshit wanted salvation in seven days, the sage Shuka recited the Bhagavatam and not the Ramayanam. The victory of Hanuman is without opposite forces. But, the victory of Gopikas is in presence of strong opposite forces.
