and Family Life
spiritual path... one simply cannot maintain a relationship that
involves love and sex. A relationship between people of opposite
sex demands sensuality which is never forthcoming because of the
spirituality involved. The path of spirituality demands practice
of absolute celibacy (Brahmacharya)... something that is tough to
practice in real life!
spiritual path and the relationship... we definitely need to choose
one! If we do not do that... we fall in the same line as that of
Siddhartha Gautama... who in the initial stages of spiritual practice
left home without burning his karma in entirety. The result... Siddhartha
Gautama for many years... rather decades kept wandering with no
results in sight!
a serious seeker of spirituality... burning karma in totality is essential! This
includes every form of relationship whatsoever. Walking the spiritual path and
maintaining a relationship are two banks of the same river that never meet come
whatever may! On the path of spirituality we simply cannot remain hopeful... it
is a matter of yes or no!
girl or woman on Mother Earth can ever understand the true meaning of spirituality
or the inclinations of a spiritual seeker. She was never made for that. God Almighty
meant it so! God Almighty imbibed in woman folk the attribute of bondage (Moha
in Hinduism) that was necessary for family life to survive on Mother Earth.
presence of bondage (Moha) in women folk is so strong that no girl or woman can
ever escape from the clutches of bondage (Moha). And what is this attribute of
bondage (Moha)? It is bondage Moha that takes care of family ties! The strong
feeling of motherhood in women tears apart the spirituality in the strongest contenders
of spiritual path!
is this bondage in women folk that keeps the family going even in toughest of
circumstances. Survival even in all odds becomes possible with the presence of
bondage Moha in women! If a woman finds a child (not belonging to her) weeping
on the road... the attribute of bondage imbibed within her makes her act like
a Mother to the child!
is this bondage Moha that asks for a special meaning in relationships! Spirituality
dissuades one from the sensual part of life! To maintain a balance between the
two was not possible for Buddha... how can a commoner expect to overcome this
difficult task! One simply has to choose between the two! Spirituality or relationship...
there is no other solution!
