Is spiritual journey full of joy?
Moksha means Mo = Moha, Ksha = Kshaya. Therefore Moksha means destruction of the attachment to the family bonds. This attraction towards the family bonds is solidified in your heart from several births. Such darkness can be removed only by the preaching sentences of Lord Datta which are like the rays of the Sun. Unless you are attracted towards Lord Datta you can never reach the Lord. Unless the attachment to your family bonds is removed, salvation is only a dream. Datta means the human form of the Lord that is given to this world. Sages could not get salvation by chanting hymns, penance, meditation, yoga etc., and even by attaining the super powers unless they were born as Gopikas and worshipped Krishna who is the Lord Datta in human form.
They were detached from the family bonds and were attracted to the Lord who was present before them. The path towards God is full of thorns giving you several problems, miseries and terrible loss. Sankara left His mother, Prahlada left His father, Buddha left wife, son and kingdom, Radha died for the Lord Krishna, Kannappa plucked His eyes and Hanuman tore His heart with His own nails. All these are the forms of the true path leading to the Lord. In your path, which is chanting hymns, meditation, singing songs etc., you are getting peace and bliss. The Lord is not responding even once. Unless you weep, the Lord will not be pleased. Unless you loose the peace the Lord will not be peaceful. Jesus told the same in Bible “I did not come to give you peace, I came with a sword to cut your family bonds. Unless you leave your parents, husbands, wives, children and even your lives you cannot be dear to me”. Gita also says ‘Mat Gata Praanaah’ which means that the devotee’s life itself is the Lord. In the ten stages of devotion the last stage is death (Unmaado Maranam Tathah). When you are cutting your family bonds you will certainly weep and feel it as loss and trouble. Therefore Jesus told “The path that leads to Me is very narrow with one or two persons only travelling in it. The path that leads to the Hell is very wide and happy with full of people”.
Gita also says ‘Kaschit Mam Vetti, Bahunaam Janma namante’. Vyasa did lot of penance and wrote several scriptures. But he was running after his son called Suka, who was walking intoxicated with the love of the Lord. This is told in the beginning of Bhagavatam (Dvypaayano Viraha Katara). The same Vyasa could not get food at Varanasi for three days. He became angry and was ready to curse Varanasi. But see the Saktuprastha, who did not get food for the last ten days during the draught. He could get a little flour and was going to eat with his family. But when the guest came, he sacrificed that to the guest with full happiness. Therefore if you are happy in your spiritual path, such path is filled with flowers and is leading to hell. The reason is that such path is strengthening your unreal family bonds. When your spiritual path gives you sorrow, such path is full of thorns and is leading to the Lord. The reason is that, in such path you have to cut your family bonds and that gives you lot of pain and misery. The affection and attraction towards the Lord, which, you are showing today is not from your heart. It is only apparent and you are acting. You are trying to use the Lord for the happiness of your family bonds. Such devotees are called as divine prostitutes. The prostitute talks very sweet words and exhibits sweet feelings only to earn money from a person.
Your prayers are such sweet words. Your devotion is such sweet feeling. The prostitute may fool an ignorant human being but can you fool the Lord who is omniscient? The sacred ash on your forehead, the garlands around your neck and the silk cloth which you wear are just like the decoration of a prostitute to attract the Lord. You are deceiving yourself. The Lord is furious with you. Even a human being without manners will respond if you call him by his name. But the Lord, who is having the best manners, is not responding even if you are calling Him lakhs of times in doing Japa. By this you estimate the quantity of anger and hatred present in the heart of the Lord on you. Even if you are not putting a single step in the true path, don’t put so many steps in the false path. As you are putting more and more steps in the false path, you are becoming more and more far from the Lord and the Lord is becoming more and more furious. Control the Bhoga, which brings Roga (illness). The association with your family bonds will bring you lot of mental worry. Sacrifice the enjoyment and association with your family bonds. Develop the bond with the Lord only and this is the true path. Veda says ‘Tyagenaike’ and Gita says ‘Tyaagaath Santhih’ which mean that sacrifice of the bonds with every human being and every object in this world alone can bring the salvation.
