Aditya in Texas wants to know why isn't the ultimate goal of Self Realization or Moksha so popular in Sanatana Dharma today?

Well Aditya, I think you would find that if you mixed around with mature Swami's in the United States who have come from India or who live in the United States you'd find them talking about Self Realization and the ultimate goal of Moksha. It's a very personal goal that needs guidance for attainment.

What is the binding force that keeps youths in the home? Love. If you love your children completely, they won't want to leave. You won't be able to force them out of the house, even if you try. You are bound together by bands of steel made of love.
