Attachment and Detachment

Lord Krishna preaching Bhagavad Gita

Human life’s attachment is only temporary. Attachment with our wealth and with our relatives would not last for a longer period of time, and it would be only a temporary relationship, whereas attachment with the god would be a permanent one, and it would continue in our subsequent births also.

According to the sayings of Lord Krishna in the Bhagavat Gita, we should not pay too much attention on worldly objects, since everything created by him is perishable, and hence we should pay our attention on worshipping the great Lord Krishna, in order to increase our good karma, and it would be very helpful for us to reach the path of heaven.

Detachment means disinterest. It is a must for us to detach ourselves from the physical attractions and worldly affairs, and instead of that, we have to keep our mind and body on listening to the discourses of the god, praying and singing songs on the almighty. Our life is like a water bubble, and it can end at any point of time.

Lord Yama will never wait and take our life. As soon as our death time arrives, he would immediately take our life, even waiting for a second. Lord Yama may take our life at any point of time even while taking bath or while eating or while sleeping.

The noble saints like Sant Dnyaneshwar, Tukaram and Meerabai dedicated their entire life on worshipping Lord Krishna, and due to that, they have attained Salvation. The great child devotees like Bhakta Prahalad, Dhruva and Markandeya kept faith on god even when they were young, and due to that, they have reached the divine worlds, and living there happily by worshipping the almighty.

Similarly, we must have to dedicate our entire attention on praying to the almighty, and must live a simple and honest life, and must visit lot of holy temples, in order to seek the blessings of the great almighty. Only if we detach the worldly comforts and pleasures and if we surrender ourselves into the feet of the almighty, we would not take birth again. Or otherwise we have to take numerous births, and we would have to suffer again and again in this very difficult world.

Let us worship the great Lord Krishna and be blessed.
