The 3rd canto of the bhagavatam where Kapila informs his mother that husbands are like hunters setting traps, and so on.Here is the really relevant section:----- 1-Warmly, Kapila explained, “Mother, if you keep your inner thought focused on your true destination as a living being, then you will be able to move about this world of hunter’s songs and death traps without becoming allured and ensnared (catch in a trap) by the negativity of it all.” 2-Taking hope, she would ask, “How should I do that? How should I keep my inner thought focused on my true destination as a spirit soul?” 3-“By seeing the world in the right way!” Kapila said. “Not by running away from the world, but by seeing it correctly. Not by running away from a beautiful wife, handsome husband or loving child, but by seeing them all correctly.” 4-“What is the ‘correct’ way to see them?” She would ask. 5-“Look upon the world, but look upon it through the eyes of wisdom,” he explained. “Put your wisdom into practice! That is the proper way to deal with this potentially horrible world, and transform it into a truly positive experience. If you put your wisdom into practice you will become empowered with natural and effortless detachment from the world. This will enable you to interact with the physical, sensual realm in a disciplined, controlled way.” Kapila says that we cannot run away from māyā, but we can learn to interact with māyā in a way that promotes enlightenment rather than illusion. 6-IS LOVE THE SOURCE OF BONDAGE?-- 6-1-Love and relationships in this world are not the source of bondage. Selfish desire is the source of bondage, and selfish desire hijacks our love and relationships. 6-2-We are not supposed to discard love and relationships .we are supposed to discard selfish desires, and gradually learn how to relate with our friends, spouse, family, etc. in a way that is service-oriented, generous, unselfish, giving, LOVING in the real sense of the word. 7-All religious strictures, disciplines, etc. are meant to facilitate this way of interacting with the world, and it is the subject of the first six chapters of Bhagavad Gītā, and is known as karma-yoga. 8-If we have very, very strong bhakti-realization as a result of extensive bhakti-yoga in previous lifetimes, we will not need karma-yoga. Even still you may adopt it out of convenience or convention, or to set a good example for the rest of us, who do need karma-yoga as a stepping stone to jñāna-yoga, both of which support and are subsumed within real and sincere practice of bhakti-yoga. 9-Even if you practice karma-yoga, you will practice karma-miśra-bhakti-yoga, not karma-yoga literally. Karma-miśra-bhakti is bhakti in which karma-yoga forms an initial support. So you will advance by cultivating strong bhakti. This will enable our selflessness in worldly relationships. In all cases, the most important practice is to read Bhāgavatam carefully under realized guidance, and to chant nāma-japa with significant effort on true focus, and to take shelter of him. 10-Destiny sends a good romantic companion ,But Learn how to relate to his/her without selfishness, for his/her service. As we get the hang (STAY) of that, it will be very easy to sincerely and deeply inter-relate in the service of the divine. 11-THE KEY POINTS------ 1-IN LOWER CHAKRAS ,THE LOWER FORM, IS LUST. 2-IN UPPER CHAKRAS,IT IS PLATONIC LOVE---LIKE SRI RADHEKISHANA. 3-MAY BE PLATONOIC LOVE OR DIVINE LOVE , THIS IS NOT THE DESTINATION.IF IT COULD BE THEN--- WHAT WAS THE REASON BEHIND THE FAILURE OF THE FIRST LOVE STORY OF MATA SATI & MAHADEV OR TRAGIC STORY OF SRI RADHEKISHANA?4-MATA PARVATI ,THE CONSORT OF SHIVA,REACHED HIM , ON THE BASIS OF HER TAPA & WISDOM BUT NOT BECAUSE OFONLY LOVE... SHE CONVERTED HER LOVE INTO REVERENCE & DEVOTION ALSO--- 5-MAHADEV IS THE EMBODIMENT OF SUPERSOUL WHILE MA PARVATI REPRESENTS US, I.E.SOUL. SUPERSOUL IS PERFECT....BUT TO PLAY A GAME...THERE IS A NEED OF TWO ..THAT SECOND ONE SHOULD HAVE REVERENCE ,FAITH, & DEVOTION WITH ENLIGHTENMENT....this is the requirement of supersoul for soul.6-THE CONSORT OF SOUL IS ONLY & ONLY SUPERSOUL...THERE IS NO MALE OR FEMALE ..ALL THIS , JUST A TRAP...7-'LOVE IS GOD'.....WHEN YOU CONVERT YOUR LUST INTO PLATONOIC LOVE . IT IS THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS SPIRITUALISM. BUT HERE ALSO YOU HAVE TO BEAR AGONY LIKE MA SATI ,SRI RADHE ,MEERA & SO ON..8- MAY BE THAT IS THE REASON OF GAUTAM BUDDHA,MEERA,TULSIDAS ETC. WHO LEFT THEIR PARTNERS TO MOVE FORWARD ON THE WAY OF SPIRITUALITY.9-LUST WILL LEAD YOU TO THE HELL,& LOVE TO THE HEAVEN BUT NOT TO THE DESTINATION...ALTHOUGH HEAVEN IS BETTR THAN HELL.God is Love, Wisdom, and Truth - three great worlds that require all eternity to be explored.....contd. .........SHIVOHAM...
