    Devotee: Please give me strength when my husband, my daughter leave me for the mission of the Lord, I shall not weep I shall send them with full willingness and happiness at that time To achieve that state, what shall I do from now onwards?

    Swami: First of all I told that there is no need of leaving the home or family If the home and the family are congenial to the mission by devotion
    This question does not arise in your case since you are a great devotee When the family opposes the mission, then only one has to leave home .However, I shall answer your question keeping you as a representative For an un-matured devotee, in which case only this possibility arises

    Neither God gives you such strength nor you can attain it by your effort Such state should be spontaneous and then only the Lord is pleased.Leave this mission, one day or other all have to separate and go Then do you require the strength for such departure or not? The departure is inevitable even for the un-divine human beings If the blind love is accumulated day by day, just imagine that day When one has to depart from all his blind attractions in this world!

    Just on the death bed, the Lord gives the last flash of knowledge By that you will realize the truth because at that junction of life and death One sees clearly both the worlds since the messengers of Lord Yama Stand before the person to pull out the subtle body from the gross body Then every one realizes that these bonds were absolutely unreal In that last few minutes the agony starts because the person thinks like this “For these blind bonds I have spent all my energy and my life time, Who cannot save me in this time, the saviour is not coming now because I have not spent my lifetime and energy for His mission when I was aliveNow even if I wish to serve the Lord for His mission, there is no time When time was there this realization did not come, what could I do?”

    At that time the person is pained for foolishly having these bonds
    The person is not pained for leaving these bonds as you think nowThat situation will open the eyes of every human being in this worldIf you are not pained to leave these bonds for the mission now When you are alive, you will not be pained at that last minute also,

    You realize now and be wise to leave the bonds with happiness You will have the same happiness at that time also to leave these bonds One day or other you have to leave the bonds without any mercyWhy not leave the bonds now itself for the sake of the Lord and be saved?When you leave these bonds at that time you are not saved for leaving the bondsBut if you leave the same bonds even before that time, you are saved always

    Is it not wise to do an inevitable thing now itself and get its benefit?

    Is it not foolishness to do the same inevitable thing then and loose everything?The Lord is not pleased if you are sacrificing with pain and tears in your eyesSuppose you are offering some money as Guru Dakshina to MeIf you are pained will I accept that? If you ask Me to give strength

    To sacrifice that money to Me, how bad I shall feel about it?If you are having bond with that money, don’t give it to Me, keep it with you Who asked you for your sacrifice? If the bond with that money is really brokenYou will not weep when you are sacrificing that money to Me.Such sacrifice is done by force and is not spontaneous at all Suppose you are giving milk to your child, are you not happy to give that?

    Are you weeping to give the milk to your child? Are you praying the LordTo give strength to sacrifice milk to your child? This means that the Lord Is not equal even to your child, you are sacrificing all the bonds for your child But you are not sacrificing all the bonds for the sake of the Lord Therefore, your love on the Lord is not real compared to your child

    The Lord expects only one bond with Him and not any other bondSee Sakthuprastha, who sacrificed his food and food of his family They were not eating for the past ten days in that severe draughtIf they do not eat that food their lives will leave their bodies He sacrificed the entire food spontaneously with happiness

    When Shankara left His mother He was so happy to go on the mission You be in the place of Shankara and not in the place of His mother. His mother was weeping to leave Shankara but Shankara was happyYou should get the grace of the Lord like Shankara directly and not Like the mother of Shankara indirectly, you must yourself win His grace .
