I don’t deny the importance of earning काम (Kama) but that is not sole purpose getting married. For Youth under the control of present day consumerism, marriage is also relation to consume each-other. That is it.
भोगा न भुक्ता वयमेव भुक्ताः
तपो न तप्तं वयमेव तप्ताः ।
कालो न यातो वयमेव याताः
तृष्णा न जीर्णा वयमेव जीर्णाः ॥
हमने भोग नहीं भुगते, बल्कि भोगने ही हमें भुगता है; हमने तप नहीं किया, बल्कि हम स्वयं ही तप्त हो गये हैं; काल पसार नहीं हुआ, हम ही पसार हुए हैं; तृष्णा जीर्ण नहीं हुई, पर हम ही जीर्ण हुए हैं !
विवाह = विशेष रूप से वहन करना।
Helping each other in process of self-realization. That is marriage.
लग्नसंस्था is best way of भाववृध्धि. If you do not accept and live life in sensitive relations like mother,father,son, brother,sister etc, you miss important way to connect mass. Vital skill for mass revolution.
भावसे भव निर्माण होता है|भावशुन्यता रोग है|
This is for my dear friend, who was brainwashed by a sect that it is not worth to get married. All our Rishis were married. All Avatars too. When there is a choice, go for sanatana way. Exceptions are God-gift and you realize your exception very early in life. At 25, it is escapism if you say you don’t want to get married.
If you were an exception, symptoms and characteristics surface very early in life. 🙂
