Radhanath Swami on Perfection of Attachment

The whole cycle of how one falls into the material life begins with attraction between the objects of the senses and the senses. From that attraction comes lust - Kama, the longing and craving to enjoy something - and then one becomes attached to the sense objects. One naturally becomes attached to whatever one enjoys. But this tendency can be used to turn around the situation completely. It is the nature of soul to become attached to what it enjoys. And the soul finds unlimited enjoyment in being enjoyed by God. Therefore, when one gets attracted to God one unfailingly becomes unlimitedly attached to Him. That is the perfection of life.

  17. Nice explanation by Radhanath Swami about the perfection of attachment. Just like attachment, we can dovetail everything material for the service of Lord Krishna and once we do that things don't remain material.
