Attachment Bondage or Moha
(role played in gaining Enlightenment)

Attachment bondage... Moha... may mean different to many but meaning of all three words remains the same. Christians call it water, Hindus Jala and followers of Islamic Dharma Paani... the intent and meaning of all the three remains the same.

Let me explain the concept from the beginning...

If there was no attachment bondage or moha... the need for soul to traverse a long journey of 8.4 million lives (a total earthly journey of 96.4 million years) would never arise (rather would not have been required at all). If God Almighty desired the chain of all manifestations right from very first manifestation to the last manifestation (the 8.4 millionth manifestation... the last in the series of evolution)... there must have been a most plausible reason for it. And what was that?

At the time of big bang when cosmos was evolving (at the time of start of creation)... all souls atmans scattered all over the cosmos. These souls in their cosmic journey gathered impurities on the way. To come back to their pristine pure form these souls required removal of the dross within. Taking an example...

Let us assume a lump of gold ore weighing one hundred KG. If we presume this lump of gold ore contains one KG of pure gold then in spiritual terms... this one KG of pure gold is a single soul (atman as we call it in Hinduism) and it does not have powers within it (means) to remove these impurities. These 99 KG of impurities to separate from one KG of pure gold requires requisite mining machinery.

It is this process of purification of one KG of pure gold from a lump of hundred KG of gold ore that we are interested in. This journey for a human being gets completed in a total of 8.4 million manifestations (On earthly plane it means a journey of 96.4 million years... a long journey indeed!).

As we see above... to separate pure gold from the dross (within the ore) we need requisite machinery. Similarly, every soul atman on its cosmic journey requires a body to work out its karma and remove the dross within. Now what is it that keeps the total entity binded for such a long period of time. Is it not moha bondage... attachment that keeps every body glued to each other... the materialistic riches of life?

This was necessitated as God Almighty did not desire the journey to be completed in a short time. Now, unless we cut through every attachment moha or bondage... can we expect to get out of the clutches of karma. No, it is just not possible! To gain enlightenment within this life we need take absolute control over the five senses and the mind. This becomes possible only after gaining absolute control over any feeling of attachment moha or bondage!

In other words we need to cut across the shackles of attachment for overcoming the senses and the mind. It is easy to talk of attachment but difficult to control in physical life. In the life of a true seeker of enlightenment... To detach self completely from the bondage of parents, teachers, friends, relatives and well-wishers is the most difficult part of life! Why?

A moment before... one was your dearest son or daughter! The moment you crossed the threshhold of attachment... both become unknown to you. All the children in the world becoming like sons and daughters... the distinct divide between your own and others vanishing... you are nearer to god almighty!

No Attachment Bondage or Moha... need for soul to traverse a long journey of 8.4 million lives would not exist!

Easily said than done... the path of enlightenment is the ultimate goal of every human being... come whatever may! None can deviate from this absolute and the only truth of life. And the absolute truth being that the body of a human being is merely a garment for the soul atman within and whence comes the time it shall be cast away mercilessly in the hope of getting a new garment... a new body... a new manifestation! On earthly plane someone dies but on the spiritual level... nothing is lost... all is the result of process of evolution taking place every moment of life.

And the final truth that emerges is, the soul atman proceeds on its cosmic journey truthfully and mercilessly and in the physical manifested world... a death has occurred. In the domain of soul (atman in Hinduism)... life is a continuous process... nothing is lost for everything owes its existence to god almighty. It is for soul to shed its dross manifestation after manifestation, become purer and finally reach the original pristine form it longed for. Having come full circle... this purified soul atman becomes enlightened!

And now the question arises... how-to come out of the feeling of attachment... bondage or moha (as we call it in Hinduism). We have to break free from the clutches of attachment bondage or Moha for ever... It is the process of yoga and meditation that helps become free of shackles of attachment bondage or moha forever.
