Attached Detachment: best path to the priceless properties of love, affection and compassionThere is a wealth of evidence through the electronic media such as Youtube videos and also published literature that only those who acquire wealth through perfectly legal and fair means and then re-distribute it to vast sections of the population through direct and indirect means are the best people who get love and affection in return. Their compassion is there for all to see. Two outstanding figures who are simple advocates of this policy and carry the priceless properties of love and affection on a very wide scale are Mr. Azim Premji of WIPRO and Mr. Narayamurthy of Infosys. Whatever impact they have created on a huge scale is far removed from purely commercial considerations. Their values are case-studies in sociology and in many B-schools.
Such people and countless others like them practice what is called attached detachment. They work so hard but their lives are based on ethics. They are attached to the hard work that goes along with the pursuit of wealth, but wealth is a mere by-product of their hard work and sincerity.; it is never an obsession.
Let us all emulate them and do our bit to the society, through attached detachment. Only then can we have a world where equity and equality are there, at least to some extent. Let us practice attached detachment in a similar fashion. We have too many case-studies of too many people in this regard. We owe it to our children as well. We need to demonstrate to them that attached detachment is the best policy in life that will enable them to show compassion for others and get the priceless properties of love and affection. For, no one ever carries anything on his or her head when he or she is gone from this world.
