Instead of asking a person to give up his attachment towards the family, if he is asked to catch hold of God he will attach himself to God and automatically detach himself from everything else

Sri Sri Krishna Premi Swamigal

 

ஒரு மரத்தில் ஒரு கிளையில் நிற்பவனை நோக்கி 'மரக்கிளையை விட்டுவிடு' என்றால் விடமாட்டான். 'மேல்கிளையை பிடித்துக்கொள்' என்று சொல்லி அவ்வாறு பிடித்துக்கொண்டே பிறகு 'கீழ்க் கிளையை விட்டுவிடு' என்றால் உடனே விட்டுவிடுவான். அது போல் 'குடும்பத்தில் பற்றுதலை விடு' என்று ஒருவனை சொல்லுவதைவிட 'பகவானைப்பிடி' என்று சொன்னால் பகவானை பிடித்துக் கொண்டவன் தானாகவே எல்லாப் பற்றுதலையும் விட்டுவிடுவான்.

 

A person holding on to a branch of a tree, if asked to give up his hold, will not comply. But if asked to hold the upper branch and then give up the lower one he will readily do so. Likewise instead of asking a person to give up his attachment towards the family, if he is asked to catch hold of God he will attach himself to God and automatically detach himself from everything else.

 

Please check these: Excerpts from a discourse by our Sri Sri Muralidhara Swamiji

 

"I do not ask you all to give up anything. 'Hold Krishna' is what I say.

 

Whatever may be the work we are engaged in this world, we should constantly keep doing Nama Japa

 

As your heart beats as you sleep, dream or being awake let your tongue always Chant the Divine Names of Hari.

 

Chant the Mahamantra Nama kirtan :

 

Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare
Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna Krishna Hare Hare
