For a normal person material pursuit of life was necessary to earn daily bread and butter for the family. Dominated by ego (Aham in Hinduism) one indulged in daily routines of life! For a commoner, one from masses it was not necessary to pursue spiritual journey in life.
For a true seeker, one traveling spiritual path… body itself was clothing for our soul atman, the spirit within. Path of spirituality demands our establishing absolute control over five senses and mind. By continuing worldly relationships one could never overpower five senses and mind.
For a true seeker, traveler of spiritual path… entire world becomes one large family. A truly spiritual person all the time worked for welfare of entire mankind… never for individual self. To reach hidden underlying cosmic truths of life… a seeker indulged in path of jnana yoga (absolute wisdom). One also traveled path of nishkama karma yoga, never attaching self to fruits of karma performed. Working with an unattached attitude is what nishkama karma yoga of Hinduism all about. We need working like a trustee… custodian, caretaker taking care of things that already belonged to God Almighty.
As detailed in Bhagavad Gita whatever we called our own in present life belonged to someone else before we manifested it and would belonged to someone other after we leave mortal frame. For an enlightened one, who had become a pure soul atman… the regular daily routines of life carried no meaning. Normal human beings used their brain 1 to 2 percent but an enlightened one used the brain 100%.
By practicing absolute celibacy for a minimum period of 12 years in continuation a seeker finally fully awakens kundalini shakti, the coiled Serpentine energy lying dormant in base of spine. For an enlightened one like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ, Sri Ramakrishna Paramhansa and Maharishi Ramana… benefit of mankind was above all. One truly becomes a man god in ones lifetime. An enlightened one always sees God in one and all. After all we were a soul atman… tiny essence of God Almighty living in heart of all. It has rightly been said that God exists in all human beings in miniscule form as our soul atman existing in our heart. We truly were not distinct from God Almighty in essence.
We failed to recognize our true inner self due to presence of ego (Aham in Hinduism). Only when we cut shackles of karma… we became a pure soul atman forever.
