TULSI DAS AND HIS WIFE - துளசி தாஸ் எப்படி துறவு பூண்டார் ?



through wind and rain, just to be with her. So determined was he that he mistook
a dead body for a boat to cross a torrential river. Finally, after midnight, he
reached his destination only to discover that all the doors were locked. Since
his wife's room was on the upper floor, he had to climb in order to reach her
room. Taking a python to be a thick rope, he scaled it and slipped into his
wife's room. After all his difficulties, he expected his wife to be happy to
see him. But instead, she was so ashamed of his insane attachment to her that
she said to him, 'Had you directed this craving that you have for me towards
God, you would have realised God long ago.' Those words came
as a shock to Tulsidas, a blow to his ego, and he himself must have felt
extremely ashamed of his unintelligent and foolish attachment to her. He must
have felt the burden of his attachment. Thus his whole being, every cell, every
atom of his body, every heartbeat, every breath, and every pore of his body
turned inward. That very moment he realised the heavy burden of attachment he
had been carrying in the name of love. His heart skipped a beat to unload it
and then was filled with pure love for God. At that moment he decided to die to
his body-consciousness and to live in God-consciousness. He left his wife and
home and wandered as an ascetic. Later he became the renowned saint we know
as Tulsidas
