I am a bit... confused.
My 2nd Guruji told me that he would like to retract himself from all worldly relations that has been hindering him in obtaining the true meaning of the practice.
What I know, is that Siddharta Ghautama Buddha tried to attain sense by getting away from it all.
He was a hermit, with a bunch of yogis who chose to follow his lead, by ostracising himself from their surroundings.
One day Buddha decided that everything should strike a balance, and Nirvana was obtained when he has acknowledge that he fears nothing, even himself.
Now the concept of Nirvana is summed up in Wiki as :
Nirvāṇa (Sanskrit: निर्वाण; Pali: निब्बान nibbāna ; Prakrit: णिव्वाण) is an ancient Sanskrit term used in Indian religions to describe the profound peace of mind that is acquired with moksha (liberation). In shramanic thought, it is the state of being free from suffering. In Hindu philosophy, it is union with the Brahman (Supreme Being).
The word literally means "blown out" (as in a candle) and refers, in the Buddhist context, to the imperturbable stillness of mind after the fires of desire, aversion, and delusion have been finally extinguished.
So, as you can see it has nothing to do with physical exclusion from human relations.
Human relations here did not just mean, sexually. It includes everything else.
So, do we really have to make sure that all kinds of relationships are severed to attain nirvana?
I believe Nirvana is subjective. My type of desired Nirvana might not be the same with the person sitting next to me.
I am really hoping for this to make sense. I just want to be in peace with myself, to love myself more than what I am doing now. And to extend whatever help I can to people who needs it and deserves it.
With Love, Namaste.
